windows 10 upgrade black screen HP Pavilion dv7 home premium

Pavilion dv7
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

HP, Please provide drivers for Windows 10 .

 

My notebook is running on Windows 7 Home Premium, but can not do the windows 10 upgrade. Drivers are needed for the successful upgrade. After upgrade attempt, there is a black screen and no cursor, nothing. Microsoft support says there are no drivers provided by HP for the Windows 10 upgrade.

 

Please HP, provide drivers for Pavilion dv7 notebook computers, running on Home Premium system. How long do we have to wait?

 

I have done the latest BIOS update, latest graphic drivers update, latest Service Pack 1 update from Microsoft, removed 3rd party virus detection, but still can not do the Windows 10 upgrade. Come on HP !

 

My full model number is 

 

HP Pavilion dv7t-4100

 

Tried 6, 7, 8 times, but still not able to upgrade to Windows 10.  What is the problem  ? ?

There are no Win10 drivers from HP for your laptop -- thus, I would advise NOT updating to Win10 at this time.

 

I updated an HP DV6 (which also did NOT have Win10 drivers) and the upgrade left it in an unusable state.  I had to restore it from HP Recovery Media to get it back to a working state.

 

The MS Win10 Compatibility Checker does a lousy job of detecting driver problems on Win7 laptops -- so when you force an update through the MEdia Creation Tool, that ends up corrupting your PC and either (1) leaving you with a Win10 device which has nonfunctional hardware (due to lack of drivers) or does a half-baked job of restoring Win7, often leaving you in a state where it doesn't work right.

 

By the way -- HP has never said the DV7 line is compatible with Win10 -- only MS Upgrade tool claims it is.  Your issue is with Microsoft, not with HP.

Thanks WAWood,

 

Microsoft, are you watching, listening?

 

Unhappy windows 7 users, please reply and pass this message on. 

 

Hey, Microsoft, stop telling everyone it is a free upgrade and wasting our time, when really, you want to discriminate against windows 7 users.

Need to understand that Microsoft said your machine was compatible with Win10, not HP.  And, MS pushed the Upgrade to your machine, not HP.

 

However, it's very unlikely that anyone from MS reads this forum, as this is not one of MS's own forums.

 

Besides, some of use have been providing feedback on Win10 to MS since the days the Insider program first started, and much of what we said got ignored.
