How to Install 32bit BIOS for Installing Win10 32bit?

I have recently flashed UPC1DM17 BIOS on my UP, and it is working.

However, I actually need to install Win10 32Bit for specific industrial applications.
As far as I can tell, this requires 32Bit BIOS.

Where can I obtain correct BIOS for this?
There is no 32Bit option for UPC1DM17.

Thanks,

Karl.

    I have obtained UPC1BM0S.zip from aaeon ftp site.

    Just trying to ascertain whether this is safe to flash to 4GB UP board.
    It seems to indicate in the documentation that BIOS greater than M revision is compatible with 2 and 4GB systems.

    Hey @karlhm76 how did you get that UPCBM0s.zip file? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

    32bit BIOS is not officially supported, only the first revision had that option.

    32bit software can run on Windows 64bit too.

    Hello,

    Sorry for late reply
    I was able to download the BIOS from the Aaeon FTP site I am fairly sure. It took a bit of searching to find it.

    @DCleri , it is important that I can run 32bit due to specialist 32bit device drivers that I have developed for proprietary hardware...
    This is very memory intensive and 64bit addressing will have problems.

    If UP no longer supports 32bit OS then it may be time for me to start looking for alternative. This platform seems to change far too often as well.
