Hey guys, a few days ago I bought this laptop at a throw away price from a friend. It was running on Windows 7 so I decided to upgrade it to windows 10 which wasnt any successful. So I decided to do a clean installation of windows 10. I downloaded the latest Windows 10 version 20H2 from the Microsoft Website. Apparently after upgrading it brings this blue screen of death all the time. It cant go past this point. Unbeknown to me, this was a 32-bit 5th gen laptop and apparently that occurs to 32bit users only (Not 32bit users only but a number of them). What should I do since I cant go back to Windows 7 (Windows 7 and 8 support ended this year January).
It keeps saying 'SYSTEM THREAD EXCEPTION THREAD NOT HANDLED".
I have tried looking for a solution on YouTube but it doent work. I cant even boot to safe mode.
Get a torrent, go through comments to see if it has issues or its good. Most torrent images come with issues already fixed. Make sure it covers the 32/64 versions in one image. From there, things will be smooth.
In this case install 64bit version of Windows since Core i series supports both 32bit and 64bit applications.
Also, a 32bit OS will not be able to utilize RAM above 4gb so in case you wish to upgrade your RAM for better performance on Windows 10 then you will need to have installed a 64bit OS
