Windows 10 is coming up on its first anniversary and the free upgrade offer from Microsoft is set to expire on July 29, 2016. In most cases, our tech support recommends taking advantage of the free offer and upgrading to Windows 10.
Over the last year we have talked about some issues that folks have experienced when trying to upgrade to Windows 10 on older machines. Specifically, machines that originally ran older operating systems and were then upgraded to Windows 7 or 8. In some cases, a piece of hardware is just too old to run the latest operating system.
Our technicians have had the best results by backing up all desired computers files and then doing a fresh install of Windows 10. After the installation is complete the computer files can be restored. This avoids some conflicts with older software or drivers and Windows 10.
If you have any questions or would like us to install Windows 10 for you please call our tech support at 360.898.4357.
