Yes.... absolutely.can I use the fresh install to change a 32bit machine to a 64bit machine (assuming the CPU etc is 64bit ready)?
You just can't upgrade bit versions one to the other. You must perform a custom clean install, so....
All your data should be backed up and you will need to reinstall all your programs / apps.
Personally, I always use the Media Creation tool to download the ISO that contains both the 32 and 64 bit installations.
Don't ask me why..... I haven't worked on a 32 bit Windows 10 machine ever, but....
As soon as I don't have a 32 bit copy, someone will bring one over for me to work on.
