Upgrade m8100y OS to Windows 10

HP Recommended
HP m8100y
Microsoft Windows Vista (64-bit)

I am thinking about upgrading my m8100y's Vista to Windows 10.  Is HP supporting this model on Windows 10, such as firmware / drivers...etc.?  Does anyone have this setup?  If so, how's the performance?

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

I read your post about wanting to upgrade your PC to Win10 -- and I would strongly advise AGAINST it!

 

HP only support the Win10 upgrade on PCs made after August 2013 -- and yours is a lot older than that.

 

HP provides no Win10 drivers or software for your PC, so you're then stuck with the generic drivers that Microsoft provides.

 

Also, there is no "upgrade path" from Vista to Win10, meaning, you will be forced to do a clean-install, and in that case, nothing will be retained from Vista -- no apps, settings, or data.

 

Sorry, but even the older Win7 PCs have a lot of trouble upgrading to Win10; anything older than that is a waste of time.
