Hello Everybody

I had tried to install Win8 Pro x64 on my 32bit Computer. But my CPU is a x64 based cpu...

In system details the pc tells me: 32-bit Operating system, x64-based processor.

Why cant i install the Win8 Pro it tells me that my CPU isnt a 64bit CPU???

Info about my PC.
Packard Bell
Intel Duo Core E2140
3GB Ram
320 GB Harddisk
2GB GT610 Video Card

Yeah you can't upgrade a 32-bit OS to 64-bit. That's impossible.

If you clean install, just make sure you copy all of your important data to your flash drive. And be prepared: you'll have to reinstall EVERY piece of software that was on the PC before.

Honestly, with your system specs, you would be fine leaving it at 32-bit. There would be zero gain from changing to 64-bit, just the hassle of having to redo the whole thing.
