That would be an aweful first experience. Imagine her thoughts: "Oh. I
made something wrong.. Maybe it's nothing for me.."

I suggest to let it as it is and check the system (if 64bit or 32bit)
when it is running.

Maybe then a little popup comes up with something like:

"You're pc could be run faster, if you upgrade this operating system
to the 64bit version of it. You can download them here if you like:

Even better would be:

"You're pc could be run faster, if you upgrade this operating system
to the 64bit version of it. You can do so by clicking here: [Button]"
