    bobkin the other fact is that you have a 4GB Physical memory limit with a 32-bit version of Windows vs. you can get up to 512TB for 64-bit OS's from Microsoft.

    Does this have anything to do with whether either version (X86 or X64) of Windows 10 will install on a PC that has no NX bit?

    This is getting pretty far removed from the OP's original question.

    Yes it does, because there is a limit on 32-bit OS's for memory and file size. 32-bit OS's are going away and when those software designers start adopting 64-bit as Google, Mozilla, Linux and Apple has. You will see a lot more programs and even games that will perform better.

    Please read post #3 again. (It's not mine.) I was addressing the idea that Win 10 X86 (32 bit) would install on a PC that does not support the NX bit. (Turns out that neither X86 nor X64 will install.) Nothing to do with what should be installed.

    Incidentally, I use X64 on all four PCs that I'm currently running. One is a 2008 laptop with an AMD CPU and only 4GB of RAM (the maximum for that laptop). I'm not sure that I'd care to try it on the OP's PC with 2GB, even though that's right at MS's stated minimum. X64 is the future, and it's pretty much the present.

    But not on PCs without an NX bit. They're too much of the past.

    You do realize that 2004 was when NX support since the 80286 CPU came out. There is zero issue to run a 64-bit OS, so I really do not see why this has to be repeated like a broken record. If you had also noticed, the OP has not been back in three days. Most likely because some like you insist on making this kind of stuff out to be an argument.

    Just because you have a 2008 laptop with only 4GB RAM, does not mean that the OP motherboard is only capable for 2 or 4 GB RAM. There are plenty of units from the P4 days that could do well over 4GB of RAM.

    Keep in mind, my Pentium 4 is not a HT model, so no hyper threading technology.
