I want to upgrade an HP G6 2158sa laptop from Win 10 32bit Home version 1803 build 17134.48 with a digital licence to 64bit Pro using a product key. Can I return the laptop to the 32 bit Home version by simply reinstalling and relying on the Microsoft servers to recognise the hardware and reissue/apply the digital licence?
The reason for the upgrade is because I've been trying to install an HP PSC750 printer on the Home version without success. I also want to utilize the 6GB of ram available in this laptop, hence the 64bit install.
I've had success on an Acer running Pro version 1709 build 16299.371, although I had to manually install the printer using Windows update and selecting the HP 990C printer drivers. This gave me both the 990C and PSC750 in available printers, I then removed the 990c leaving a working PSC750.
Although this worked on the Acer laptop it does not work on the HP laptop because the Windows update for Home version 1803 does not list the HP990C printer as an option.
Any help would be much appreciated.
