  1. Windows 10 64-bit version installing on a new Laptop?


    Hi,

    I am considering to buy myself a new Dell Latitude series laptop and I want to clean install Win10 on it.
    I want to install the 64-bit version of Win10 but how can I make sure or know if that new laptop (or ANY laptop) on the market will have a x64 based processor in which I am running now as shown from my image.

    So in order to be running Win10 (64bit), a system must have a x64 based processor, but how will I know this when I am in a market for a new laptop?

    Thanks

    :)

    Windows 10 Multiple editions only installs 32 bit, not 64 bit

    I got the Windows 10 multiple edition from Dreamspark that says has both 32/64 bit versions of windows pro and windows home. I finished my new build and installed windows with the installation media from a usb and everything worked perfectly, but I realised
    it was running a 32 bit version and not a 64 bit one. When it was installing I don't recall any options between a 32 and 64 bit version. How can I get the 64 bit version of windows 10 running on my computer?

  3. is it possible to upgrade from windows 10 32 bit to 64 bit

    Will it be possible to choose 32 bit or 64 bit when upgrading to Windows 10 regardless of which version you currently have? I know there are issues with upgrading a 32 bit version to 64 bit directly but
    it is possible to install 64 bit.

    If i currently do a custom install of 64 bit Windows 10, will i have to get a
    new product key for the 64 bit Windows 10 .ISO and re activate it again . will my other activation key ( 32 bit win 10) become useless or can i use the same key but have it upgraded to a 64 bit one

    Looking at advertisements, if 4GB RAM or greater is mentioned it's a sure bet it's a 64-bit computer with a 64-bit OS/Operating System. Haven't seen many with 4GB running 32-bit OS [a limitation] although a 64-bit CPU can run a 32-bit OS.

    But once you start with the 32 bit the allocated memory drops to 3 gigs, the limit 32bit can address.

  7. I think you would be hard-pressed to find a new laptop that wasn't 64-bit compatible. Seems like you are putting too much worry into something that isn't going to be an issue.
