    The processor architecture is based on the 64-bit architecture. On such a processor you can run both 64 bit and 32 bit OS, however there would be a limitation on the amount of RAM that the OS can support. For a 32 system it is 4GB.

    Only issue is going the other way, trying to use 64 bit on 32 bit

    Are you wanting to Install Win7 instead of Win10? If so you'll need to do a clean install to change from 64-bit to 32-bit versions. Same for changing from 32-bit to 64-bit. Or are you wanting to dual-boot Win10 and Win7?

    Going from Windows 10 to Windows 7 requires a clean install always, even if you are staying on the same bit level.
