    Try M$_Coreinfo Coreinfo

    and see if you meet the Processor Specs . like CX16 too

    Run it from an Admin Command Prompt so you can see the screen output.

    Win 10 X64 Pro 15063

    A couple of things:

    Isn't a Windows 10 license work for both X85 and X64? (I believe that you could do an upgrade installation from a 32 bit qualifying OS, and follow that with a change to 64 bit with a clean install. It'd have to be the same type of license: Home or Pro.)

    If I understand the OP, she can't boot the PC from an X64 DVD. Shouldn't she be able to do that, regardless of whether the OS would actually install or activate?

    I'm not sure whether that CPU supports all of the instructions required for Win 10 X64. I see that it was released in 2004. That doesn't prove that it's incompatible, but its spec sheet doesn't mention NX (or DEP, as Intel calls it):

    http://ark.intel.com/products/27093/...he-800-MHz-FSB

    This sounds like an interesting exercise in updating the OS on ancient hardware.

    The confusion is mine I think Bob , I assumed She was trying to upgrade Home to Pro.......not Pro x86 to Pro x64

    She didn't elaborate on Errors etc but the Guy she quoted gave up an d went back to Win7 ....

    If it's just booting x64 I would think perhaps a Secureboot/UEFI/CSM/EFI problem maybe? my x58 MB has an option to turn on EFI for OS's compatible or something like that (likely anticipating Win8 back then).

    As for the processor yes , that's why I wanted Her to run CoreInfo , as just cos you can turn it on in the Bios does not mean it is active.

    Well looking at the link you posted CV. it needs NX (VT-x or VT-d) ie Virtualization Tech.


    NX helps your processor guard against malicious software, adding more stringent security for 64-bit processors. NX support will be indicated by either “VT-x” or “VT-d”.



    and according to Bob's link I just looked at , it does not support that.....

    Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x) ‡ No

    This is not correct at all. The licence is independent of the bit type. The ONLY restriction is that you cannot upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit or vice versa. You have to do a clean install.

    Yes I said the Confusion was mine.... ^^^^

    but now I think Her Processor does not support Virtualization which is needed

    You really are creating confusion with your incorrect posts in this thread

    NX is different to VT-X!

    Many 64bit cpus are NX compatible (most in fact unless really old).

    VT-X compatible means the device is capable of running virtual machines. A lot of older 64bit pcs could not. Even newer machines with low end processors are not always VT-X compatible.

    I am only reading the Article She Quoted..........it is not my info ............ and why i asked her to run CoreInfo..... but I read elsewhere VT-d is needed for NX ?...........so I don't know ? I don't profess to be an Expert , I just google when I need too....

    Maybe. The archive does not explicitly say anything about DEP (NX). The OP posted that she was able to turn it on in the BIOS settings, which indicates that it's present. (I hope.)

    I upgraded the BIOS to the latest (2007).

    I checked the requirements given here: How to Upgrade from 32-Bit to 64-Bit in Windows 10

    CPU-Z does not show NX setting although I enabled it in the BIOS.

    What should I try next?
    Always try to check requirements at the vendor site, in this case Microsoft.

    You said you turned NX on in BIOS ... your CPU must support the instruction

    EMT64 is the equivalent of PAE

    The nitty gritty ...

    Windows 10 Specifications System Requirements | Microsoft

    • Secure boot requires firmware that supports UEFI v2.3.1 Errata B and has the Microsoft Windows Certification Authority in the UEFI signature database.


    • Client Hyper-V requires a 64-bit system with second level address translation (SLAT) capabilities and additional 2 GB of RAM (Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise only).


    • To install a 64-bit OS on a 64-bit PC, your processor needs to support CMPXCHG16b, PrefetchW, and LAHF/SAHF.

    The last bullet in the requirements tells me that your hardware does not support Win10 x64.

    You can boot, but as soon as the install starts, nada, nuttin, Kaput. It would be better to fail gracefully, but.....

    Coreinfo, as requested by Kbird, should confirm that.

    Aside from the bit depth question though ...
    Win10 32-bit does see 4GB Ram.

    What does CPU-Z show ?

    It might be possible to upgrade your CPU, but since the machine is really old, you're probably better off getting newer technology - a new machine or rebuilding the old one with new Mobo, GPU, CPU, Wifi, PwrSupply, etc.
