I have no problems in downloading Windows 10 onto my 64bit machine and have done so in the form of an ISO, as suggested on the Microsoft site.

At this stage I don't want it on my 64bit machine and would prefer it to go onto a spare 32bit machine that I have,

When I tried to download the 32bit version they advised me that they couldn't do that as they recognised my machine as a 64bit.............which of course it is.

I want it to go onto my spare 32bit machine so as I can play with it and get used to it.

I am quite happy with Windows 7 on my 64bit machine and do not intend to change until I have to.

Is there a way around my problem?

Thanking you in anticipation.

Ron

If you use the Media Creation Tool it gives you the option to download media (the ISO) to "Upgrade another PC".  If you're not actually doing the upgrade on the 32-bit machine you refer to, you are going to have to download it via the method I mention with the Media Creation Tool.

 

Were I you, I would simply do the upgrade process on the 32-bit PC using the Media Creation Tool with the Upgrade this PC option.  That's the far safer method to use.

Shall we assume that your 32-bit machine does not have an eligible OS on it?

RonPardy may be doing what I often do: download both the 64bit and 32bit EXEs or MSIs. That way, his hard-drive has a library of installs that can be done offline and/or whenever he feels like it.

Both machines have legit OS.

The 32bit is only a spare and is not connected to the internet......Now you will say " why don't you connect the 32bit to the internet", which is the sensible answer but I don't want to go to all the hassle and just want the spare computer to try programmes on and to play around on. 

If I could download both 64bit and 32 EXES I would but I don't know how to................can you advise and indicate where I can download please.

Thank you for your replies so far.

Ron

Ron,

 

         Use the Media Creation Tool.  You're as capable of searching this site for the direct link or Microsoft's site as any of us are.

 

         You can lead a horse to water . . .

Now I understand.

First you download the Media Creation Toolx64.

Within this tool there is an option to download 32bit for another computer in the form of an ISO.

Thank you Brian for your condescending reply...........I had a look at your web page.....................no comment.

Thank you all for your help.........I got there in the end.

This topic is now closed.

Ron

Sorry that presenting accurate information, and then having to present it again, and having the questioner not be willing to do any homework, is considered condescending.

 

I shan't bother offering help to the ungrateful on future requests.

Ron,. my work ISP blocks google search and I cannot find it in BC downloads - what URL did you use to get Media Creation Tool?

Brian, my present ISP blocks much of the search abilities - what is the URL to your web site?

RolandJS,

 

          I am not allowed to post a direct link to my website because it is commercial in nature.  If you click through to my profile page it is listed there.

 

          If you can go to microsoft.com and use their search option for "Media Creation Tool" the first link that appears is the one for Installing Windows 10 using the Media Creation Tool.

 

          Since you note you are not able to search for it from where you are I'm happy to provide it, and have done so before.  What irks me is when certain people appear to think that if you're not willing to spoon feed every bit of information but instead point them to what they need to research themselves that you're not being helpful.
