Is there any way to translate Windows10 64 bit to Windows10 32 bit same boot without dual booting

OMEN by HP - 17-w101nx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Since manufacturers already installed Windows10 64 bit, some user needs require to work on Windows10 32 bit platform..
Trying to install dual boot without risk the system and the recovery has unknown result till now
So I thought it might be easier to translate the same OS to the other choice. I mean from 64 bit to 32 bit without losing the built in OS or install a new dual one.
Even though. Still will require Windows10 32 bit drivers !!

@needdrivershelp

 

There is no way to "convert" from 64-bit to 32-bit, or vice-versa; instead, you have to do a clean install.

 

Sorry, but that is how it is.

32bit programs should run fine on a 64bit system. 

You are probably using either a 16bit program or a 32bit program with a 16bit installer.

 

Please refer to this article for more detailed information:

Running Old (16-bit and 32-bit) Programs on a 64-bit Windows

Congrats ..
I suggest you contact microsoft and ask them to fire their dumb employees and hire your smartness instead. Because based on what you suggest windows 10 32 bit is not useful anymore .

I think you need to review what you say and what you think before you try to send a spit to Microsoft products.

Don't need to argue out of my subject though..

My concerns here is to find a away to switch between windows Oses.

And that's a good reason also to run 16bit programs on Windows10 32 bit platform.

Are you disputing the FACT that 32bit programs will run on 64 bit Windows?

@needdrivershelp

 

First you say you want to "translate", then you say "transfer" -- NOW you want to "switch" between the OSs.

 

The first two can't be done; the second requires two OS installations.

 

And, on top of that, you want to argue the relative uselessness of using a 32-bit OS.

 

WHAT is it you really want to do -- other than argue?
