U150 - update to Windows 10?

2016-05-20, 22:18 PM

Anyone actually done it?

 

Lenovo does not list the U150 as one of the machines it has tested for compatibility.

 

I found one post elsewhere suggesting it was problematic.

Hi Ken-C ,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

I was also waiting for any of our fellow members that may have tried such upgrade. 

 

Couple of newer version of the U series model declared non recommended as device drivers intended for Windows 10 are not available and functionally not compatible to Win 10 features and may not be fully functional. 

 

You may further check if your machine can support the new OS here .

Checked on support site for drivers but seems that it is not available on Win10 and even Win 8 / 8.1 .

 

This however would not limit owners to try availing of the free upgrade offered by Microsoft until July 2016.

As Win 10 minimum requirements would also be present with U150 specifications.

 

On events that OEM drivers are not available, Win 10 itself have its own native drivers although just generic and may not fully work with the features. Manually searching directly from specific manufacturer for the drivers using the hardware ID can help. 

 

Amongst the windows updates for Windows 7 SP1 is the upgrade for Windows 10 that you can try and test yourself. But as with all upgrades , best that you back up your files and create your original recovery media before the process.  Such upgrade is reversible within 30 days.

 

Just to set expectations , it may work but on minimum performance based on the specification of the model. 

It still is worth trying but try to balance the value of a currently functional laptop.

 

Update us how things go for you best .

 

Regards
