Can this upgrade be done with the Win10 media creation tool? I did a few win7 64 bit machines and it went well but this one Win7 32 bit machine keeps getting hosed during one of the reboots. I have to restore it back using the win7 32 bit disk to get it running again.

I'm guessing I'll need to do a fresh install on this one perhaps?

Any suggestion?

Microsoft Support says:

Upgrading from the 32-bit version to the 64-bit version of Windows requires that you reformat your hard disk, install the 64-bit version of Windows, and then reinstall everything else that you had on your device.

It took me 5 seconds of googling to find this.

Thank you all. I ended up starting with a fresh install.
