Upgrading from Vista 32 Bit

I have a Vostro 220 running Vista 32-bit. I would like to eventually get to Windows 10. I've purchased a Windows 7 upgrade, but I don't think it will work on a 32-bit driver. 

Is this possible or is my computer going to become extinct?

RE: Upgrading from Vista 32 Bit

There are no "UPGRADES" from 32 to 64 bit for ANY version of windows.  ONLY Complete Erase and reinstall from scratch.

Usually upgrades will contain media for both 32- and 64-bit.

The windows home usb flash drive has 32 and 64 bit and the files to install home or pro.

 

There is also no direct path upgrade path from XP or Vista to 10.  You have to upgrade to VISTA SP2 then upgrade to WIN7 SP1  then upgrade to 10.
