How to upgrade Win Next Starter Retail 32bit To any Win 7 64bit ver

Hello forum.

On my way to downgrade Win10 back to 7, on my Satellite Toshiba U840, found out that my serial number for windows 7 was for Starter Retail version.
That is odd because i remember that my windows 7 was 64bit and supported all of the windows features,
in comparison to what Starter Retail provides. I ran alot of graphic programs on 3 years ago...

Is it possible to upgrade the retail version to any Win 7 64 bit version?

Thank you for your time!

Windows 7 Starter was only available in 32bit.

Most people will be happy with Windows 7/64 Home Premium.
To go from a 32 bit Windows 7 to a 64 bit Windows 7 you will need to do a Clean Install.

We need your system spec to get a idea whether a 32 or 64 bit would be best.

Please use this tutorial by Brink to help you fill in your specs.

Thanks Layback Bear, for your quick reply.

I've updated my specs for you to see.

Pardon me but I think you misunderstood my question.
I'm certain that I had windows 7 64bit installed before upgraded to win10.
When I decided to downgrade, I have found out that the serial number, used by the store from which i bought the laptop, was that of windows starter retail edition.

With that said, I'm trying to find out if I downgrade to 7 retail (coz I have only that windows version serial number) how did the store upgrade me to a win 7 64bit version.

Thank you for your patience

O.K flipped my comp and found the original Windows serial number sticker

It says I had Win7 Home Prem OM, god knows I I know what that means.
Weird that the ShowKeysPlus stated i had Win Next Retail....

Anyway, Thanks again.
