    First, explain what method you used to "download". Obviously you did not use the Windows Update method. Did you use the Media Creation Tool? If so, there are two 64/32 bit choices. The first is to download the 32 bit or 64 bit version of the tool. This does not choose what version of Windows 10 will be installed, it's just the bitness of the tool itself.

    Once you've download the tool, then you have to choose 64 bit or 32 bit from the prompts as well.

    Yes i used the media creation tool, and did not touch anything that said 32 bit. The tool itself does not give me any options besides to upgrade to windows 10 or do it for a different pc.
