    Is it possible to upgrade from Win8 32bit to Win8 x64bit


    Is it possible to upgrade from Win8 32bit to Win8 x64bit or trick the PC into thinking its x64bit so I can install x64bit programs

    No, you cannot trick it and you cannot upgrade. You can format and start over.

    Is there a particular reason you want to get 64bit apps? Is it to take advantage of more than 4GB of RAM?
