    Will Windows work on a Dell XPS M1530 laptop with 4GIGs of Ram


    Hello,
    I have a Dell XPS M1530 laptop with 4gigs of Ram running Windows 7 Professional. I have a 465GB HD with 356 GB free. Will windows 10 pro work?

    thanks in advance.

    Most likely possible. I installed Win10 on a Dell Studio 17/1747 a couple of days ago that had Win7. Have also installed it on 2 Dell Inspiron 15 Notebooks, just finished one. One thing to watch for is perhaps the need for updated/Win10 compatible drivers for Wireless Network and, if you have it, Bluetooth Wireless [both of my 15s needed it] but check support.dell.com with your Service Tag to be sure.

    Berton thanks a lot for your post. I'm surprised that dell will still support my laptop since I purchased it in 2009. I will check for the Bluetooth wirless drivers.

    I didn't look up the age of that unit, it may not have a Bluetooth adapter, usually a part of the Wireless/Wi-Fi adapter. In most cases Win10 can work fine installed over Win7 but there still may be driver issues if not built into Win10. My Dell Studio 17/1747 is every bit as old as yours, first review I read was in Dec. 2009.

    Dell is not confirming support of XPS M1530 laptop to work with Windows 10. No drivers available. Hopefully it will still work.
