    dont know if this is any use. but you can go from a 32 bit win 7/8 to a 64 bit 10 but only after you install and activate the upgrade which licenses your machine.

    then if you can get hold of a 64 bit ISO media you can boot from it and install that over the top and remove the old windows using disk cleaner. just skip any part where it asks for a key and it will activate once all installed, but only if your machine has activated before on the 32 bit version.

    Disabling driver updates for Windows 10 Home users:

    Right click on start button then select system

    Click on Advanced system settings

    then Hardware tab

    then Device Installation Settings and change to No etc.

    Doesn't work, it's a legacy setting from previous windows versions, has no effect on 10
