  1. upgradation from 32 bit windows 10vpro to 64 bit windows 10 pro


    Hello,

    I have 8 GB RAM but only 2.55 GB is usable. So I am thinking of upgrading to 64 bit version of windows 10 so that I can get access to more of my RAM.


    Current Windows Specifications:

    Currently I have Windows 10 Pro 32 bit (version 1903) that is activated using a digital license linked to my Microsoft account.


    Current Processor Specifications:

    I have a Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7500U CPU @ 2.70 GHz 2.90 GHz, x64 based processor.


    Can someone please tell me step by step Instructions on how to upgrade to windows 10 pro 64 bit from windows 10 pro 32 bit using iso file?


    Moreover I don't have product key. My windows is activated using digital license. So will I be able to activate the windows after upgrading to 64 bit?


    Thanks in advance.


    Note: Please give me step by step and a well elaborated procedure. I am not that techy.

    :)

    Windows 10 Upgrade 32-bit to 64-bit

    So, Windows 10 Upgrade is being rolled out worldwide, and I have 'reserved' my upgrade.

    Currently my computer is running Windows 7 Pro 32-bit. I'm planning to 'upgrade' it to Windows 10 64-bit (via fresh install, of course).

    After reading many references, these will be the steps I'll do:

    1. Let the "Get Windows 10" app upgrade my OS to Windows 10 32-bit
    2. Note the activation key
    3. Download the Installation Media for Windows 10, but choosing 64-bit instead
    4. Perform a clean install
    5. Reactivate using the activation key in Step #2

    (Of course I'll backup my data first.)

    However, I still have some questions:

    1. On Windows 7, the activation key does not differ between 32- or 64-bit versions. Is it still so with Windows 10?
    2. Will I be able to download a different architecture on Step #3?
    3. Is there anything I need to prepare beforehand?

    Thank you for your assistance.

    Upgrade Windows 10 32-bit to 64-bit.

    You have to do a "clean install" of Win 10 64 bit. There is no "upgrade" process from 32 to 64 bit.

    Did you have Win 7 Home or Pro. There is no "free upgrade" from Win 7 Home to Win 10 Pro. You have to do that upgrade in at least 2 steps:

    Win 7 Home to Pro to Win 10 Pro

    OR

    Win 7 Home to Win 10 Home to Win 10 Pro

    The 32 bit to 64 bit upgrade is a separate additional step.

    Run the WinVer command. What Version and Build do you have?

    If you have Version 1803, many people have reported "accidental" upgrades from Home to Pro by MS. But that "upgrade" doesn't work!

    Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit to 32-Bit?

    Hi,


    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.



    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue.


    • What is the name of the game?
    If the system architect is 32 bit, then you can’t install 64 bit version of windows in it. I suggest you to run “winver” by pressing Windows + R, and check the version and bit.

    There are some games that you can install it in 32 bit as well.

    Windows 10 is the free upgrade for those users who has genuine key for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 , normally it doesn't require activation, it's gets activated automatically, in case if you face an issue with activation the you can get back to
    us.



    For reference you can refer the link below and check if it helps (32 bit and 64 bit architect applies same to windows 10)

    Thanks and Regards.
