    I downloaded 64Bit version of ISO on my XP, I used DAEMON to mount it + WinRAR, in both I successfully got the setup file, but whenever I opened it this message shown up:
    THIS is not a valid win32 app.

    any help, thanks!

    You must download The 32 bit (x86) one
    Because you are running a 32 bit PC

    You can't update to WIN10 from XP, you must do a clean install

    That you're not a pro is not a problem, we're here to help out anyway ;)

    This is quite clearly announced actually. Only WIN7 and 8 can update to WIN10 TP, all earlier OS version must do a clean install. SO you need to boot from the ISO by burning a DVD or a bootable USB

    You can use the Microsoft USB/DVD tool to create a USB stick you can boot from or you can use a tool like Rufus.. The latter will be required if you want to create an UEFI bootable USB..

    This will erase all data on the disc you install to so make sure you either use a separate disc of have backups.

    I read about UEFI, it's better than the previous one, right??
