  • No way.  Windows 10 Enterprise is 64-bit and there is no direct route to upgrade from any 32-bit Windows to a 64-bit Windows system. All the device drivers will have to 64-bit drivers. 32-bit drivers will not work on a 64-bit system.

    Not true. Windows 10 32-bit is also available.

  • Hi Christopher,

    As Balaji M Kundalam said, Windows 10 Enterprise 32-bit can used for your devices.

    But, as we all know, the only way to install 64-bit system on a machine which used 32-bit system before is system reinstallation.

    Hope my clarification is clear.

    Best regards,

    Teemo Tang
