    x64-based processor, but x86-based PC; can I upgrade to x64 bit?


    Hi, I'm currently running a Windows 10 Pro PC with a 32-bit architecture. My processor allows for a x64 upgrade, but my system's information shows that my PC is x86 based. Can I still upgrade? I also have 6.00 gigabytes of ram, definitely enough for an upgrade.

    Thanks in advance!

    No you cannot upgrade a 32-bit system to a 64-bit one. You can however, clean install a 64-bit system instead of the 32-bit one.

    Oh, yeah, sorry, haha. Totally overlooked that. Would my PC allow for a x64-bit architecture?
