    Upgrading Windows 8 CP 32-bit To 64-bit


    I'm running Windows 8 CP 32-bit.

    I have a bootable USB for 64-bit. Can I upgrade 32-bit system into 64-bit with this bootable USB without affecting my system data?
    Apologies if same thread exists, link me if so.

    Hello Kapilarya,

    Sorry, but you cannot upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit or the other way around. You would have to do a clean install from 32-bit to 64-bit instead.

    If you do so, be sure to backup anything that you do not want to lose first.
