    your pc must first be a 64 bit machine - if it isn't, then you cannot install 64 bit windows on a 32 bit machine.

    You'll need to get the ISO for windows 10 but when getting it, you should select the 64 bit version

    Assuming capable hardware:

    You cannot "upgrade" from 32 to 64 bit Windows.

    You're attempting to replace the foundation of a house when the house is already constructed. You will need to do a clean install of Windows with 64-bit media, whether a USB disk to DVD.
