The WIN10 free upgrade deadline is here, and I cannot seem to upgrade my Split X2 easily... at least by using SETUP. Is there a known way to do so?

This is a great place to ask questions, find solutions and get help from others in the community! I read your post on the HP Support Forums. I wanted to reach out to you and help! I understand that you are looking for information on Upgrading to Windows 10.
Here is a document for you called Upgrading to Windows 10. You will see there are several sections for you to read over, such as:

- Steps to take before upgrading
- Upgrading to Windows 10

Please read over this documents as well.
Obtaining HP Recovery Discs or an HP USB Recovery Drive - HP provides a recovery solution on the hard drive, but it is still a good idea to have a recovery solution on a USB storage device or discs. A disc or USB device can be stored in a safe place and used in the event of a hard drive failure, a hard drive format, or in the event you change the operating system.
Backing Up Your Files (Windows 10, 8) - File History automatically backs up files that are in your libraries, contacts list, favorites, and on your desktop. If the originals are lost, corrupted, or deleted, you can restore one file or all the files. You can also find previous versions of your files from specific dates.
Here is a link to the HP Support Assistant if you need it. Just download and run the application and it will help with the software and drivers on your system that need updating for Windows 10.
If you require further assistance, I would be more than happy to help! Please just re-post with the information required from above.
