    Windows 10 32 bits/ linux Ubuntu

    How can I carry over W10 32 bits to another computer

    I have 2 computers. One with W10 32 bits (update from W7). (I have a upgrade disk of W10). The other (older) computer works under Linux Ubuntu. I want to change the OS's in W10 32 bits on the oldest computer and W10 64 bits on the newest one. I have bought W10 64 bits. So I have to bring the W10 32 bits operating system to the computer with the Linux Ubuntu OS. But I don't know how I must do so. Who can help me ?

    Your licenses to not care about 32 bit or 64 bit - they only care about Home or Pro.

    If you want 64 bit on your newer computer you'll have to clean install it as you can't upgrade from 32 to 64 bit. It will activate automatically - just select "I don't have a key" when prompted.

    For your old computer just install Windows 10 (either 32 or 64 bit) and activate it with the key it came with when you bought it.

    You can download the 32 and 64 bit ISOs from Windows 10 ISO - just make sure to chose Home or Pro according to the licenses you have.
