Windows 8.1 Professional RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a customer who requires a HP ProDesk 400 machine. This is the machine available with FReeDOS

    HP ProDesk 400 G4 Microtower PC 

    Intel® Core™ i5-7500 with Intel HD Graphics 630 (3.4 GHz, up to 3.8 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost, 6 MB cache, 4 cores), Intel® H270, 4 GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM (1 x 4 GB), 2 DIMM, 500 GB 7200 rpm SATA, Slim SATA DVD-Writer, Intel® HD Graphics 630, Conexant CX20632 codec with universal audio jack and 2W internal speaker, headset and headphone front ports (3.5 mm), multi-streaming capable, HP USB Business Slim Keyboard, HP USB Optical Mouse, 1 year warranty, FreeDOS 2.0 WITH 20" TFT MONITOR

    He prefers Windows 9.1 Professional 64-bit OS as he is use to Win 8.1 and it is user friendly.

    But the HP Distributor from whom I am purchasing this machine tells me this machine is 7th Generation machine and only

    Win 10 Prof can be installed you cannot install Win 8.1 Prof.

     The customer requires 5 machines and I am in a limbo. Can anybody help or has knowledge if this is true what the Vendor says.

    Thank you very much for the help
