  1. upgrading from windows 10 home to 10 pro 64 bit


    What are the dangers? I brought my upgrade last year and could not get it installed. Not I have to have bit locker. Is it just as simple as entering the product key? What do I stay to lose? last year when I installed it my PC almost stopped with regards to response time. I have a dell xps with 16 gb memory. Any suggestions

    :)

    GPU-Z update loop (Windows 10 64-bit)

    I don't have better steps - this is all, I have nothing to add.

    Maybe it is worth noting issue was on Windows 10 Enterprise, build 14393.187, so maybe you should test on the same.
    My other PCs have a different Windows 10 version - Pro, latest Insider Preview build from last week, and there is no such issue on those.
    All are 64-bit edition of Windows 10.

    This issue is not new. I have had same 1-2 years ago too, with older GPU-Z versions.

    EDIT: And yes, I have Windows 10 UAC enabled and set to defaults. If you are using your Windows PCs with UAC off, you likely cannot reproduce this issue. *Smile upgrading from windows 10 home to 10 pro 64 bit :)

    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 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.
