I've got 32 bit windows 8.1
on a surface "clone" the intel baytrail tab;ets ship with a 32bit UEFI bios and so only support 32 bit windows, (even though the chip is 64 bit).
with Linux you can use the 32 bit boot loader to boot a 64 bit OS, but obviously windows isn't as cool as Linux.
if you're really finding that the performance is lack lustre, don't forget that with a decent speed USB drive (I'd dedicate a bus to this, not hang it off a hub) you can
use readyboost to cache to faster than disk storage and improve performance.
