    coreinfo error / 64-bit install on Q6600

    by amplititude

    Hello,

    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 馃檪
