    x64 DVD Won’t boot


    My system has 2 Xeon 64-bit processors. I wish I could switch to 64 bits and use my 4 Gb of RAM.
    I upgraded the BIOS to the latest (2007).

    I checked the requirements given here:

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

    What should I try next?

    That is not the issue from what I can see , you can not upgrade 32bit windows to 64 bit windows without paying for a 64bit Version AFAIK, unless you somehow got 32bit PRO by accident somehow when you got the Upgrade to Win10 , then you maybe able to update to Pro 64bit , with the 64bit Key you already own from win7 or 8.

    Maybe I should have specified that I have the same experience as the original poster DoItJust, that is:

    Windows 10 x64, from DVD loads the blue window and then nothing more. Have to switch off/on to get out of it. ...
    So, no license problem yet.

    You are the Original Poster Christine , there is only 3 posts , and only me and you posting, no DoitJust posts.

    A link perhaps?

    Being able to download a 64bit version and making the USB etc , does not mean you have a licence to Run 64bit , your pic shows you are on 32bit , which means you upgraded from 32bit Win7 or Win 8 , likely the Home Version since it is 32bit , so you were Entitled to a 32Bit version of Windows 10.

    Perhaps I am misunderstanding and you are trying to install 64bit Windows Home? Not Pro ?

    but I am still not sure what the issue is?

    If that is correct , my guess would be you have the 64bit Pro on the USB , not the 64Bit Home Download on the USB

    Oops! I intended to reply to the thread https://www.tenforums.com/installatio...usb-dvd-2.html. Don't know why a new thread was spanned (junior member here). Is it because original thread is too old?

    License: Indeed I personally upgraded from a 32-bit version of Win7 (ultimate) but people (see original thread) owning 64-bit versions went into similar problems. Moreover, I have read somewhere that I may install a 64-bit version of Win10 (Pro) since my system is registered at Microsoft.

    Anyway, I still don't understand why I can't boot on a 64-bit Windows install disk, as my system should support it.

    Okay looking here Windows 10 editions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It seems you should of gotten 32bit Pro , which you did .......

    But I am unsure if the Free offer is also for the Pro 32bit>Pro 64bit or just the Home version 32>64bit.?

    You haven't said what the problem is or what errors you are seeing etc , so I am not sure how to help.....

    Perhaps Post on the Activation Forum the Same Questions , with a link to this thread.....
