  1. Upgrading Windows 10 32 bit to a 64-bit


    I'm having problems upgrading my windows to a 64-bit after already installing a 32-bit. I had previously had Windows 10 as a 64-bit. But when I got new ssds and try to download a 64-bit the windows loading screen with the blue window symbol and no spinning icon appears and stays there even after an hour of waiting. I already checked my processor and it supports the 64-bit. I'm using an USB to put the windows program onto my computer, I tried using both the USB version and the iOS version but neither worked. What can I do to allow my computer to update to the 64-bit?

    :)

    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.
