    You have 32bit Windows 8 but your processor is capable of running a 64bit OS.

    Windows 8.1 Single Language

    Hi, just wondered the same thing, though I am sure I have 32 bit, does this mean I can go 64 bit?

    Yes, you need to download from a 64bit PC/Laptop and burn a DVD, Install Assistant or Advisor recognises the current version and downloads the same version of Windows.
