Brumfondl:JayADee:sidefx: Also, if windows 10 is like 7/8 and you're relying on upgrading your current install to Windows 10, you will likely need to select the custom\advanced option when installing Windows 10, otherwise I think it may (can anyone confirm?) just upgrade to the 32 bit version of Windows 10 (why on earth are they even planning to offer a 32 bit version?)
Oh, can we do that with Windows 10? I have a windows 7 laptop that's 64 bit capable but it came with 32 bit; I'd like to upgrade it to 64 bit Windows 10 so it can use its full 4 gigs of RAM instead of 3.whatever.
AFAIK you would need to clean install to go from 32bit to a 64bit version of windows. Pretty sure you can't do an upgrade and never have been able to.
