    If doing a clean install at least need to match bit of the previous.

    No, you don't. In fact the only way to change the bit level of the previous OS is to do a clean install.

    Thanks Navy, seems this is what he is trying to do, his specs list 64bit already not all other facts yet, but why go 32bit .

    And, I've never heard of a motherboard needing a special bios to run a 32bit operating system.... especially since Product Keys for Windows 8 or 10 that might be stored in the bios will work for either the 32bit or 64bit architecture, so long as the version (pro, home, etc) are the same.

    Believe some where saying the board had more to do with it then BIOS.

    MB is governed by BIOS, in this case MB and BIOS are same thing.

    @Matt26; what happened, could you install the 32 bit version?
    I just think we have to face the fact that nobody can explain why our boards don't boot the 64 bit version from a DVD or USB.

    Sorry, not ignoring the posts, in the process of getting the 32 bit boot disc.

    I thought I could just download it from my 64 bit Windows 10 installation, nope. Microsoft's download tool detects what bit you're using and won't allow a 32 bit download.

    So I decided to reinstall Windows 8 32 bit just to get the ISO.

    Slightly frustrating but not all that time consuming.

    Stay tuned..

    Not true at all. There is a 32bit and a 64bit Media Creation Tool - and you have to run the program that matches the bit level of your OS, but both tools will let you download 32bit Windows 10 ISO, 64bit Windows 10 ISO or a combination 32/64bit Windows 10 ISO.

    I can't even get to the screen you attached.. I can download the 32 bit tool and as soon as run it, I get a message that my OS bit level doesn't match the bit level of the download tool, please choose the correct download tool for your OS..
