Needing to download Windows 10 and trying to find out if it is compatible with my desktop

HP Recommended
Pavilion 500
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I need to download Windows 10 onto my HP desktop (Pavilion 500 PC series, model #500-505t CTO.  I realize my computer is on the older side, but it seems to function just perfectly with Windows 7 Pro, and always has.  From what I've read, Windows 10 has not been tested for my product and so I have no idea what horrors await me if I try.  Any suggestions or new info you might have to help me?  Thanks.

the upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 should work. 
You can get the drivers for Windows 10 here: 


Make shure, that you update the BIOS to the latest version before updating.
