Hello,

I have a Bush Tablet with windows 8.1 32 bit, it has intel bay trail chipset, intel atom z3537g cpu Claims to be 64 bit capable, I have tried to format with windows recreate tool and putting it on a micro usb drive with success but the uefi (bios) won't accept 64 bit and won't install but I am sure it can run 64 bit windows but it seems very hard to do as it is on a tablet and I have tried other ways like changing the boot file within the windows 64 bit package on the usb drive from 64bit to 32 bit and it boots and then shows a screen saying it can't load it or something (can't remember exactly what it said) because the cpu doesn't support 64 bit :S now I could go on about other ways I have tried following other instructions with no success and am just really confused on how and if it can be done, I am really good at following instructions on how to do things, I have formated my main pc a lot of times in the past with ease like always re formatting from XP 32 bit and 64 bit vista 64 bit windows 7 64 bit and also build computers from scratch etc... But with this tablet everything seems to blocked or something I realllllly want to format this tablet to 64 bit but not sure how, also do you really need 64 bit rather than 32 bit? All I want to do is completely wipe the tablet and reinstall windows 8.1 64 bit I have not got any files at all I want to save either so not bothered about losing and data on the tablet what so ever, anyway thanx in advanced

A "Bush Tablet" ?
Do you have a link to this? Is it actually 64bit capable?
Tablets are pretty much un-upgradeable.

32bit to 64bit is a full install. Can't do it with a "Recreate' tool.
And you can probably only do it if you can get the installation from the manufacturer.

Why the need to go from 32bit to 64bit?

This is a link to the 16gb hd as mine is 32gb everything else is the same http://

I don't mind doing a full install and don't mind paying for a full install and I just wanted to do it for many reasons like getting the full use from the cpu, it seems a lot more difficult than formatting a full desktop computer, also I don't want to upgrade, I do want to do a full install

1. This tablet only has 1GB RAM. Normally, Win 8.1 64bit requires 2GB minimum
2. The only way this may work is if you can get a 64bit install thing from the manufacturer. See #1
3. You would see no performance difference if you were able to actually do this
