Windows 10 Pro 32bit

Probook 450 G4
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The machine came with Win10Pro 64bit installed.  Where do I get the media to install 32 bit Win10Pro?

Hi:

 

HP doesn't support that model for 33 bit operating systems, so you can't get a disk from them.

 

You will also have to hope the W10 x64 audio and graphics driver files have the 32 bit drivers included, and normally they don't.

 

The only way I know of that you will be able to get a W10 Pro 32 bit installation disk, would be to make your own by using the Media Creation tool at the link below.

Now, in the old days, 64 bit product keys used to work on 32 bit operating systems and visa versa, but with the OEM keys now in the BIOS, I don't know if the 64 bit OEM key will work for the 32 bit installation.

 

I guess you'll have to give it a try and see what happens.
