CPU issue with Windows 10

    Question

  • How come my CPU is not supported for Window's 10 when it was a couple of months ago when I reserved my free copy? Just checked to see when my free copy would come and now this report. I updated my neighbors computer for her and its a really cheap laptop and her graphics card and system barely squeaked by and does run on 10 but not the best.  My laptop CPU is Intel core I7cpu Q720 @ 1.60hz 4GB Ram 64bit Operating system, Windows 7 professional. Is it really not supported for Windows 10?

    Thanks

    I know my pc is old, just wanted a second opinion.

    I'd ask in the Windows 10 Community forum on Microsoft Community.

  • The getwx app often reports incorrectly.  Your CPU is supported

    The fastest way to get the upgrade is to download the ISO.  An ISO is like a dvd so to use it you will need to right click>mount.

    WARNING:  DO NOT USE THESE TO DO A CLEAN INSTALL (until after you have already updated).  If you do you will not be able to activate it unless you have previously upgraded to win 10 and activated it.  You then will be forced to re-install your previous OS before upgrading to win 10

    The Official Final Windows 10 download is now available

    Use the download tool to create ISO media to update your windows.
