Hi,

Can't see any problem with installing the 64bit version as long as you have a valid licence key (the 32bit licence key doesn't cover 64bit), the CPU support it.

Don't think you will see any benefit of using 64bit because the Linx 1010 only comes with 2GB of RAM and one of the reason to use 64bit is to use 4GB of RAM and higher. The downside of using 64bit is that the OS and software tend to use up more space on your internal storage which may have a bigger impact if you have less than 64GB of internal storage.

Hope this help.

Cheers,
TBeard

Cant be done. Vision only has 32bit UEFI. You need 64bit UEFI.
