  • Hi,

    No, upgrading from 32 to 64-bit is not supported. Do a clean install.

  • It is an upgrade to the current system  so it would be 32 bit.  After you upgrade and activate you can then do a clean install and change to 64 bit.  If you do not have more than 4 Gb ram it is not worth changing

  • Hi Irudhayaraj,

     

    If your Windows 7 is 32bit, when you upgrade to Windows 10, it will be 32bit too.

     

    If you want to install Windows 10 64bit, you may need to perform a clean install.
