The_provider: Thank you very much for joining the Intel® Processors communities. We will do our best in order to provide the information you are looking for.
In regard to your inquiry, from our side we can confirm the processor does support both Windows 32 or 64 bit versions, please look for instruction set:
Now, this problem seems to be related to the board itself in reference to the BIOS, please let us know the response from MSI, since they might be able to provide a solution for this problem:
Any further questions, please let me know.
Unfortunately for me the same issue keeps coming back, in more than half of the cases the processor is wrongly identified in the BIOS and I have to do the CMOS reset almost every time, and that slowly turns into a nightmare...
That is why I have to return to my initial question: can BITS log results posted above tell anything about how my processor performs with the 64-bit capabilities?
Or about something else bad that could lead to the processor being identified as lacking 64-bit(I remember there were a very small number of tests failed)?
Hello The_provider: We are sorry to hear the issue persists. In regard to your question, the Bits log provided previously does not quite tell us how the processor performs with 64-bit capabilities or why it is identified of lacking 64-bit support. As you mentioned above, the problem seems to be related to the board itself and the best thing to do will be to get in contact with the manufacturer of it about this scenario. Also, in order to test the processor we can run the Intel® PDT, it does an overall test on it and if it passed the test it should be working fine:
Any questions, please let me know.
