    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.

  3. Is there a simple step by step to upgrade windows 10 32 bit to 64? I just upgraded from Windows 7 and there was no prompt for 32 vs 64 bit.

    Upgrading from Windows 7 32-bit to Windows 10 64-bit

    windows 10 32 or 64 bit ?

    The responses on this seem to be not totally consistent.

    If you are willing to jump through hoops such as installing Windows 10 multiple times, some of which would be clean installs, is it possible to upgrade from Windows 7 32-bit to Windows 10 64-bit using the free upgrade?

    I'm thinking a process something like:

    Step 1: Upgrade from Windows 7 32-bit to Windows 10 32-bit.

    Step 2: Clean Re-install Windows 10, but opt to install as 64-bit.
