    I didn't knew it..
    I was sad to do a 32 bit upgrade and then 64 bit clean install because it wastes a lot of time.
    Now happy to know this...
    I am going to use the genuine ticket method....
    Thanks...

    The genuine ticket method is only really needed in exceptional cases.

    Now, you can just normally clean install latest version and activate using Windows 7 key.

    However, since ajs11 already has Windows 7 installed, saving the genuineticket.xml file takes all of two minutes and to me is worth the extra two minutes spent for the insurance in case something goes wrong with product key activation.

    OK - that is sound advice.

    Yes.
    I also think that it is right. In this forum itself I have read issues on activating Win 10 with Win 7 product key.
    So I think it is safe to create the genuine ticket..

    I doubt if you would see much difference between 32 bit Windows 10 and 64 bit Windows 10 with 2 GB ram.

    You will truly see a much bigger benefit if you can install at least 2GB extra RAM compared with any (probably undetectable) difference between 32bit and 64bit. On most pcs and laptops, it is quite easy to add extra RAM. Some tablets are not expandable.

    You can get additional benefit installing an SSD, but the benefit will be more marginal compared with upgrading from 2GB to 4GB.

    I currently have 2gb installed and it is expandable upto 8gb (4gb×2).

    Is it good to run 64bit windows10 on 2gb ram? Will it be too slow? Or do I need to add more ram before installing 64bit Win10?? What do you guys think about it??
