Re: G500S not approved for update to windows 10 - is there a solution

Hi hpgeet , 




As the upgrade guide describes as computer models include hardware components not fully compatible with Windows 10 and is not recommended  , it would not limit users to avail of such upgrade for as long as it passes the microsoft requirements for Windows 10 . 


Windows 10 have its embedded native drivers of its own but not an assurance that would be compatible on all components of the machine.  It may shown as unknown device then try similar guides to fix it.


If a feature would not work for you , maybe you can find an alternate way after all Windows 10 would be doing its own automatic updates as it carries its mainstream support. You have 30 days to rollback back if you think its not good for you. 


Main thing here with the offered Windows 10 is to avail the free upgrade (until july 2016 only) having the systemboard be registered to the Microsoft database as enrolled to the free upgrade thus  a free Windows 10 product key.  But before doing it best that you back up your files and create your recovery media as a back up plan . 


Hope this answered your query.

Update us how things work for you best.
