The processor information is displayed in the System Summary section.
(Ditto for those who start with a 64-bit version of Windows: You will get Windows 8 Pro 64-bit.) What about those using Upgrade Advisor to make a bootable USB-based device or save an ISO? Is there a way to actually upgrade from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows 8? (In case this isn’t obvious, you can’t actually do an in-place upgrade from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version fo Windows 8. But you need to use the System Builder disc, which is more expensive ($99.99) than the retail Upgrade or electronic (Upgrade Assistant) version of Windows 8 Pro. And in case it’s not obvious, Microsoft really wants everyone to be on Windows 8 Pro, not Windows 8 Core.
Can you then choose between 32-bit and 64-bit versions and download/create the version you want? Here again, Upgrade Advisor will only provide you with the same platform type (32-bit/x86 or 64-bit/x64) as the system you’re currently using. Only clean installs (“Custom” install type) are supported. What about the base version of Windows 8, which is really called Windows 8 Core? This version only exists because PC makers demanded it.

For most users, it would make more sense to get a new computer instead of upgrading all of these components and purchasing a new operating system.
Safe mode and nighties was attempted in both patch and installation without success.
The picture shows an example of an AMD and Intel case badge that are both 64-bit processors.
If you are not sure if your processor is 64-bit, we recommend that you look up its technical specifications.
And from there, you can upgrade your existing Windows version to Windows 8 Pro.
Or you can perform a clean install: Please refer to Clean Install Windows 8 with Upgrade Media for details.
I have no way of knowing if it is properly installed... Hi: This has been a serious and widespread problem for Win7 (and Vista and 8/8.1) for many months. This worked for me on 2 Win7 systems and for many, many others at another forum who had the same issue.
