- Question32-bit Vista Install (6 Answers)Answers
Yes, I installed Windows 10 on a Dell Inspiron 1545 (from 2009) running Windows Vista HP 32 Bit. You get a USB thumb drive (with both 32 and 64 bit) which you boot up on - choose 32 bit Windows 10. You have to change the boot sequence option to boot on the USB drive (check your manual). It does not come on a disc. You will lose ALL data and programs, so backup and store data in cloud accounts, run Belarc Advisor to snapshot your hardware and software and save the report in the cloud too. Make sure you have your other program install files elsewhere, NOT on the Vista machine.
- QuestionIs this a FULL INSTALL disc ??? (5 Answers)Answers
Clean install? Been there, done that, love it. The media sold to me by Best Buy is a USB thumb drive, not a disc. Both 32 and 64 bit versions are included and it is a full install. A single caveat here is your target PC must be able to boot from a USB port. Most newer machines will do this, but you should access the machine's BIOS and verify this is a boot option, if you are unsure. OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) versions I have looked at are either 32 or 64 bit, but not both. While slightly cheaper, I believe the license for an OEM version specifically prohibits re-installation on another (different) PC should the original PC fail beyond reasonable repair or you replaced it for whatever reason. As I recall from reading Microsoft's Windows 10 literature, you will not have a DVD player when the installation is completed. My understanding that would only occur if you were upgrading from 7 or 8, in which case the old player might be "saved". The "work-around" recommendation is to download the free program VLC, which, IMHO, is a much better alternative to Window's Media Player, primarily because of its versatility, regardless of the OS you have. Apologies for the wordy reply but I believe one needs to know what those hard-earned dollars are getting you.
- QuestionRetail or OEM? Very important that you answer before we buy. (5 Answers)Answers
Simple answer? Retail. Both 32 and 64 bit versions are on a USB thumb drive. If you are making a clean install, your PC must be able to boot from a USB port. Sorry I can't give you first-hand information about an upgrade. I have a Vista machine on the bench to be upgraded, but I need to save and migrate data to a safe place (i.e., external drive) before I proceed, in case the upgrade fails.
