·     You need to have a processor of 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor or SoC. 64-bit versions of Windows 10 require a processor that supports CMPXCHG16b, PrefetchW, and LAHF/SAHF capabilities. 

·    Your system must have a minimum RAM of 1 gigabyte (GB) for 32-bit operating system or 2 gigabyte (GB) for 64-bit operating system.
