    So, I am trying to get my 32-bit laptop to be able to run a 64-bit system (if that's how it should be worded...?) and followed what was said in this article (https://www.windowscentral.com/how-upgrade-32-bit-64-bit-version-windows-10).

    However, whenever I got to the sixth step (Type the following command and press Enter: coreinfo), it wouldn't work. I entered coreinfo into the cmd several times, even altering it slightly each time, but it keeps on saying "Unsupported processor type: 0
    Unable to extract x64 image. Run Coreinfo from a writeable directory". I'm not really a computer tech, so I have no idea what this means or what to do when this pops up. Can anyone help me out?

    Sounds like the CPU doesn't support 64-bit. Check the laptop manufacturer's documentation to verify, or within Windows if you still have a version of it installed.

    Download Hwinfo or Speccy Portable, that will tell you easily what instructions your laptop's CPU supports as well as the exact CPU in your laptop.

    Or you can use the run command either via winkey+r via the task manager to open msinfo32.exe to find out the exact CPU model and name.

    In Windows->Setings ->About ->Device specifications > System type property shows if the processor is x86 or x64 based. If its x64 based you should be able to install x64 OS.

    Or just right click all the way to the bottom left and select system. Then tell us which processor you have!
