    ok, i was wrong in part sorry , I did not do research on what atom chip the OP had in his device , I just seen it had an adom cpu ,I assumed and was wrong ,and yes I tried both 32 and 64 bit on mine..

    just boot mine up and its a Atom,cpu n570 @1.66hz, in device manager it show as a quad core under processors . , the netbook was built in ,2011/11/1 ,and iam going to try installing it again to see what happens.

    edit , it seems to be installin now ,gone farther than i got last time ,maybe i didnt try the 32bit like i thought i did ,its at 8% right now

    I run Windows 7 Pro on an Asus Eepc with 2GB of DDR2 667Mhz and an SSD and it runs just fine. Windows 8 did not work as the store apps would not run as the screen was 1024 x 600. I would give 10 32 bit a try from a USB stick.
    I installed Win 8.1 on my old Acer Aspire One netbook with N270 Atom cpu and 1.5GB of RAM and it ran it better than it ran XP that came with originally.

    There is a registry hack to allow changing the screen resolution to enable Metro apps to run.

    I no longer have that netbook or I would try installing Win 10 on it.

    it seems I must not have tried the 32bit

    because the 32bit 9926 build is a 80% ,and when I tried a few mnts ago it poped out the not compatible message quite early Inthe attempt to install it

    Well it is a bit beta so performance should improve a bit over time.

    The N570 is a 64 bit atom processor, with NX bit. It should be able to run either 32 or 64 bit, although it has a max memory of 2GB which makes 64 bit somewhat pointless. Although, perhaps there was some other issue with your device that prevented installation in 64 bit mode.
