    Which version of Win10? 32bit or 64bit on 32GB SSD


    I'm fixing an HP Stream notebook used for school homework

    Which will create the smallest image? 32bit or 64 bit?
    and how MUCH smaller? Can anyone say?

    The hardware cannot be upgraded (see below)
    Original OS was Win 10 ("about 2 or 3 years ago")

    I have successfully re-installed W10 x64 v1909.
    File Explorer now reports, (immediately after first Windows update)19.8 GB used
    8.6 GB free
    28.4 GB capacity
    The user story: "It wasn't working so I tried to reset to factory state,
    and that won't complete either, even if left overnight".

    On delivery to me the OS didn't run, but the BIOS diagnostics all passed

    My guess:
    Win10 became bloated with use over time;
    User hadn't cleaned up space; so the latest Cum Update killed the system.

    Depending on your advice, I'll install the 32 bit version in order to stave off the next recurrence of this space problem.
    I've seen several users with similar woes on running out of space on this type of hardware.
    Many thanks in advance

    2GB RAM, 32GB eMMC SSD disk, both hard wired to main board
    now at Win 10 1909 1863.836

    Switching from 32bit Win10 to 64bit Win10 - pre clean install questions

    Hi everyone,

    I'm planning to do a 32bit to 64bit move on my Win10 soon and I wanted to check a few things to minimise any downtime:

    1. I know migration is a multi-step process, I went from a 32bit Win 8 Pro version (bought online, I have the product code emails etc.) to 32bit Win 8.1 (free upgrade) and now to 32bit Win10 (free upgrade). When doing a clean install can I just get an ISO
    of a 64bit Win10 and proceed with it, or do I need to start with a Win8 64bit version and after installing do an upgrade to Win10 (which will also be 64bit as the original system would be 64bit)?

    Plan is to download Win10 64bit ISO via the Media Creation tool and roll with it after doing a full file / system backup. Currently my Win10 32bit is saying it's all Activated, so hopefully when I get online it will connect to Microsoft and activate itself
    again? During installation it will probably ask me for a product code, but I've ready this can be skipped, is this correct? at this point I don't really have a Win10 product code (although I can write down the one which is displayed under Settings -> System
    -> About), just the original Win8 code which probably wouldn't work.

    2. Is there anyway to somehow image all the current apps I've got installed and re-build the whole lot when Win10 64bit is up and running?

    Thanks in advance,

    Tom
