I’d be grateful for any advice people might be able to offer on this;
I have an old PC with the following spec:
CPU : Intel Q6600
M/B : Asus P5K Deluxe
RAM : 4GB PC2-6400
HDD : Adaptec 1430SA RAID-10 500GB total
It’s running Windows 10 32-bit ver. 1803 and I want to change that to 64-bit.
As preparation, I’m trying to run coreinfo to check that the CPU is compatible, but it quits on me with the error:
Unsupported processor type: 0
Unable to extract x64 image. Run Coreinfo from a writeable directory.
The Q6600 is an x64 CPU, albeit a very old one – can anybody tell me:
>Why won’t coreinfo run?
>Will Windows 10 64-bit install successfully?
From what I’ve read, I have to do a clean install to “upgrade” to 64-bit, so if the install fails, there’s no way back…
Thanks for any help 🙂
