    Transfer Win 10 to new PC

    Windows 7 was upgraded to Windows 10 (32 bit). I have done a couple of clean installs since. I have built a new desktop and would like to transfer windows 10 (32 bit) to new comp and at the same time install 64 bit version. How do I go about it? Windows 7 was given to me as a gift by a friend who I think bought 3 copies in a package deal. Thanks

    You are going to have to install the Windows 7 64-bit on the new computer, activated with the Windows 7 product key, then upgrade that to Windows 10 64-bit. At the same time, you must remove all Windows from the old computer.

    Or purchase another Windows license for the new computer.

    There's no reason to dual boot the same OS, either. If you need to run some old 16-bit software that doesn't run on Windows 10 x64, you can virtualize an older OS. No need to over-complicate a setup. You would need two Windows 10 licenses to do what you want.

    Chances are, there's a better, cheaper way of doing what you want to accomplish.
