I have an HP Pavilion HPE Series desktop computer (Model h8-1280t) with Windows 7. Can it be upgraded to Windows 10?

@Silvano2,

Yes it is free to make the in=place upgrade.  Win 10

Caveats:

1) The BIOS is linked to WIN 7. It is called Legacy, and your Jan 2012 unit can not use UEFI GPU cards.

2) Drivers will be from WIN 7.
