T520 to Win 10

2019-10-14, 3:56 AM

I am looking at replacements for my T520 running Win 7 Pro, since support ends. I find adverts for refurb T520s running Win 10 selling for 500-700 USD.!! I have read the posts on this forum noting the many problems updating the T520 to Win 10, and everything I find says this model doesn't support Win 10. What gives? The only reason I would buy a new laptop is because of the Win 7 Pro EOS. The Tx20 is the last series to have a "real" keyboard, so is there new info on this?

Solved! See the solution

T520 does not support Windows 10.  Some people have installed Win10 on their T520 with varying degrees of success.  But it is not supported by Lenovo or Microsoft.
