    This article here says that one can shift/upgrade from win 10 x32 to win10 x64 through a clean install, provided, system is upgraded from win7/8 x32 and activated.

    At the end, author conveniently forgets to talk abt activation status on fresh installed x64 system.

    Queries:

    Is it possible to upgrade through this route? Will activation stay on migrating from x32 to x64?

    Yes, it is. You need to skip the product key entering part & your Windows will be automatically activated after connecting to internet.
