Is it possible to install Windows 10 Pro 32-Bit on the Dell OptiPlex 3060 that has the M.2 SSD?

No.

Current Class 3 Bios and Drivers are 64 bit only.

You must use an older model because AMD, NVIDIA, INTEL, Microsoft etc have mandated that all new drivers/devices/etc are 64 bit only.

no 32-bit SKU is available for newer processors, video cards etc.

This will impact three areas:

  • 32-bit drivers
  • 32-bit plug-ins
  • 16-bit executables

32-bit drivers ended January 2019

AMD / INTEL / QUALCOMM / NVIDIA are all that way.

Nvidia announced this in APRIL 2018.

This includes the following operating systems:


Microsoft Windows 7
Microsoft Windows 8/8.1
Microsoft Windows 10
Linux
FreeBSD
