    If I install W10 on this laptop from W7 Home premium, will I be able to install and utilize more than 8gb of memory?

    That's more the difference between 32bit and 64bit more than the is version.

    Umm, I currently have Windows 7 64 bit. Just want to know if the Windows 10 upgrade allows me to put more than the 8gb of ram I have now, and it will be recognized and used.

    From Microsofts website:

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...-10-home/b1078908-1932-4c12-b5fd-bdcd58984333

    How much RAM does each edition of Windows 10 support?

    Edition

    Amount

    Windows 10 Home 32 bit 4 GBs
    Windows 10 Home 64 bit 128 GBs
    Windows 10 Pro 32 bit 4 GBs
    Windows 10 Pro 64 bit 512 GBs
    Windows 10 Enterprise/Education 32 bit 4 GBs
    Windows 10 Enterprise/Education 64 bit 512 GBs


    For a complete breakdown:

    What are the editions of Windows 10 available?


    So, yes Windows 10 Home Supports up to 128GBs of ram, but you have to be running the 64bit version of Windows 10 Home.

    I believe the chipset only supports 8Gb, so OS would make no difference
