    Hello there:

    Except for an iPhone and an iPad, the only computer I have is an HP 650 (CORE i5) ProBook laptop with a 64bit processor running an activated copy of Windows 10 32bit.

    Can I use that laptop to make a bootable Windows 10 64bit flash drive and then use it to install Windows 10 64bit on the same laptop?

    Thank you in advance...

    Well, kinda, but not as an 'upgrade'. You'll need to be doing a clean install, but yes you can do it. Last time 64 and 32 bit were sold separately was for Windows Vista.

    You can't upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit as a clean install is required. The retail version of Windows 10 comes with both 32 bit and 64 bit media. The OEM versions are sold separately including when you purchase a OEM PC. OEM's meaning Dell, HP and Lenovo to name a few. Those PC's come with either WIndows 10 Home or WIndows 10 Pro.
