    Not sure where to put this so if its in the wrong place please move it.

    Been testing my machine (see specs) with PC Mark 8 Home on my dual boot SSD. According to PC Mark the score for x86 on the home test the score is 2004 and using win 10 x64 the score is 2190. So I am switching to my x64 os for my main os.

    Opinions?

  2. Windows 10 Home 64 Inaccessible Boot Device after update

    Hi,

    AMD64 is the name for the 64-bit instruction set the x64 Windows runs on. It just happens to be AMD who invented the 64-bit x86 instruction set. It is unrelated to the AMD vs Intel CPU hardware.

    Regards.

    a trojan via the official MediaCreationTool tool is that possible ?

    Hi again. Just wanted to add that I tried creating a standalone x64 USB installer with a fresh copy of the Media Creation Tool and everything ran to completion without issue. However, when creating a combined x64/x86 USB installer, sure enough Defender popped
    up again with a Trojan warning. Same thing with creating another standalone x86 USB installer. But creating another standalone x64 USB installer right afterwards again showed nothing.

    When the Media Creation Tool is downloading the files necessary for creating the x86 install media, Defender is happy. However, shortly after the tool begins the final step of actually writing the installation files to media (whether ISO or USB), Defender
    suddenly throws a fit.

    Looks like Defender doesn't like something about the x86 installation files the media tool writes to ISO/USB. As a result, both standalone x86 and combined x64/x86 install media is affected.

    Fortunately, standalone x64 media is fine.

    Of course one would expect some performance gain for 64bit over 32bit, especially for memory hungry programs as 32bit is limited to 4GB Ram, and would need to pagefile to slower disk memory in some cases.

    In addition, you can do eufi installs.

    The only reason for using 32bit really is because pc is too old to handle 64bit or only have limited memory.

    Some tablets use 32bit installs even though cpu is 64bit compatible, as they have limited disk space and memory.

  5. If the pc or laptop can run win 64 bit its silly not too.
    I have been only on windows 64 bit since 2007 with no real problems.
    the first month I swapped over there was 1 driver and the odd program that I had to wait a few weeks for them to issue updates.
    that was back in 07 those, these days it well covered.
