Windows 10: Windows 10 64-bit version installing on a new Laptop?
Windows 10 64-bit version installing on a new Laptop?
I am considering to buy myself a new Dell Latitude series laptop and I want to clean install Win10 on it.
I want to install the 64-bit version of Win10 but how can I make sure or know if that new laptop (or ANY laptop) on the market will have a x64 based processor in which I am running now as shown from my image.
So in order to be running Win10 (64bit), a system must have a x64 based processor, but how will I know this when I am in a market for a new laptop?
If you look on dells site for the pc it should give the specs and show what Windows it comes with
Looking at advertisements, if 4GB RAM or greater is mentioned it's a sure bet it's a 64-bit computer with a 64-bit OS/Operating System. Haven't seen many with 4GB running 32-bit OS [a limitation] although a 64-bit CPU can run a 32-bit OS.
But once you start with the 32 bit the allocated memory drops to 3 gigs, the limit 32bit can address.
I think you would be hard-pressed to find a new laptop that wasn't 64-bit compatible. Seems like you are putting too much worry into something that isn't going to be an issue.
So, I faced this problem 2 years ago, yet, I can't solve it.
A few years back, I've got a new Toshiba Satellite C850-B797 laptop. It came with Windows 7 64-bit, few months later I forced to format it and install a new Windows; However, since that...
The tutorial was great - it (along with "How to Dual Boot Windows 10...") helped me tremendously in getting Windows 10 to install properly as a second operating sytem (old Vista being the 1st) on my Desktop.
However, I am having difficulty...
Bought a new Asus laptop off Amazon, and it's coming pre-installed with Windows 10.
Should activation go smoothly if I wipe it and clean install using the Media Creation Tool? I hate manufacturer bloatware.
I downloaded the most recent update today, and when it came to restarting my computer to finish the install windows showed this error message:
With the error code 0x80070032.
The moment I found that my Processor was a 64 Bit (It says 64 based processor in Systems) ('is that the same thing')
I thought I had screwed up 'Big Time' by putting on a Copy of Windows 7 32 Bit instead of 64 Bit. (But maybe not?)
