I was told by Windows staff today 14/02/20 that the above HP CPU never supported Windows 10 or Windows 8. .
Windows 10 was released for retail July 29, 2015.
I purchased my HP P7-1110 March 1, 2012.
So basically the HP desktop computer I purchased from HP was JUNK 3 YEARS AFTER I PURCHASED IT.
Why is that? Because HP failed to upgrade the BIOS & Drivers.
Why would anyone buy a computer that is garbage after 3 years?
Why would anyone purchase a computer from HP if they fail to do a necessary upgrade.
The simple reason is that they expect me to purchase another HP Product - That will NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.
Do you think ALL of my family friends and associates will hear the above? Obviously.
If not on this Forum - other people will be posting it on other forums.
BTW - the Windows personnel I spoke to couldn't have been more helpful.
The HP personnel won't talk to me to explain anything period.

The cut off month for HP machines: August 2013 that means machines which were manufactured before August 2013 will not get full support under Windows 10.
Windows 7 is dead, your machine should still have support under Windows 8/8.1.

That is correct "The cut off month for HP machines: August 2013"
However, the Microsoft person told me Windows 8 was not compatible with my CPU. I believe I saw that as the Microsoft person was displaying to me the HP www site.
I have been using Windows 10 for the last 2 years but with the latest windows upgrade (yesterday) that stopped some of the software to stop working. I have no idea what HP would have to do to upgrade BIOS & Drivers. My next computer will not be an HP & yes perhaps other computer manufacturers do the same or are worse but I will certainly try the best to get latest Versions of hardware and software. Am I wrong with that thinking?
Or is there something I can purchase & change inside this HP that would fix this BIOS & Driver problem?
