OEM Supported Systems for Windows 10 Upgrade
« on: August 22, 2015, 12:52:11 am »
If you are still waiting to get the Windows 10 upgrade, Techie helped me put together a collection of major OEMs with links that may be helpful in determining whether your device has been approved by the OEM as supported for Windows 10 upgrade. OEM Supported Systems for Windows 10 Upgrade

Thanks for this link.

Now I know my Dell Vostro 410 is not supported.

You got link to see if Windows 7 is supported?

The links provided are merely to provide lists from OEMs of devices they have tested for upgrade to Windows 10 or, as in the case of HP and ASUS, provide the model information and be directed to a page with results.  However, even if not on the list, that does not mean that a device is not compatible.  After all, OEMs are in the business of selling PCs and tablets.  In addition, some vendors, like Dell, are not updating drivers and probably not validating all models.  Here are two examples of what I am referring to:

1.  In helping someone determine if their Dell device had been validated, I found this response by a Dell representative:

Dell will decide which systems Dell will validate and support with Windows 10.

2.  A friend  who is employed by a major company doing computer repair said:
Quote
My next door neighbor bought a brand new Dell w/W10 a day or two after the release. As I attempted to ensure that the drivers were updated, I noticed that the system was not certified by Dell for W10!

Windows 10 minimum system requirements to upgrade PC or tablet to Windows 10:

    Latest OS: The latest version—either Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1 Update.
    Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor or SoC
    RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) for 32-bit or 2 GB for 64-bit

HP provides a nice list of recommended system requirements in a table at:  Upgrade to Windows 10 | HP® Official Site. If you're not seeing the icon to reserve Windows 10, see The "Get Windows 10" app doesn’t appear in Windows 7 or 8.1.
