    Hi everybody:
    I have a littte question. A time ago I installed windows 7 home premium 32 bits in a laptop that cames with W7 home edition.
    I am going to upgrade to W10 but because I have 2 sticks of 2g Gskill ram, previosly I want to install de 64 bits version of H. premium. Can I use the same certificate and key for it that when I install the 32 version of Home premium. Fresh install of course bebore upgrade to W10. Thanks.
    the certificate is the same that come with the laptop.

    from what I can make out, the OP is using a Sandy Bridge cpu, which means there shouldn't be any problems running an x64 set up. But using only 2 x2 gb's of memory is bare minimum. By today's standard the "sweet spot" is 8 gb's

    You can do the same with W10- upgrade 32 bit W7 to 32 bit W10 then upgrade to 64 bit when you add more RAM. Change of MB or CPU will invalidate W 10 licence
