Changing Windows 10 to Support 64-bit

Hi all! I recently purchased the Hi8 PQ32G221708xx and Windows 10 is running 32-bit. The processor is capable of running 64-bit, so I would like to run it as that, as I also have a couple of programs that run on 64-bit as well. Does anyone know how I could do this, or could suggest a link giving instructions on how to do this? Thank you in advance for your time and help!! :-D

From everything I've seen so far, the BIOS is somehow locked to only look for 32it bootia32.efi when trying to book from an USB device. I have gone into the BIOS and switched it to look for x64 on boot, but doesn't seem to matter. From what i've read on a few forum threads here, these units can not boot anything other than 32bit.

The 1608 Hi8Pro is the only one that had 64bit Win10 I believe... It seems to run fine, a bit sluggish as they all are with only 2gig ram, (it seems a bit slower on 1709 Fall Creator update)... Not sure why they went back to 32bit..

From the sounds of it, for that reason. It was slower and battery drained more. I think it would be nice to have it be a 64bit BIOS and let us have the option to be able to do either and we would just be on our own. But heck I would be happy to have 32bit drivers that would install all the "unknown devices" hardware after a reinstall of Windows.
