    Windows 10 Compatibility for Lenovo Z580?


    Windows 10 Compatibility for Lenovo Z580?
    ==========================================

    Thanks for replies to my postings.

    My Lenovo Z580 came with OEM installed Win 7 and intel processor.

    As Microsoft stopped Win 7 updates, I am thinking of getting to win 10

    I am hearing stories that say win 10 is not compatible with Lenovo Z580 Intel processor.

    I did find the DIY 2020 tax software claims , it has issues with win 7 laptop install and it will not work
    properly with win 7 .

    How do I get win 10 for my Lenovo z580?
    What are the options , I have ?

    Thanks for your guidance.

    If you look on Lenovo Support you'll find the Z580 has drivers available up to Windows 8.1 (x64). Machines that can run W8 usually have no trouble running W10.

    If you search eBay you'll find quite a few Z580s being supplied with Windows 10....

    You should have no problems upgrading to Win10, but as a precaution it's a good idea to make a system image before you try upgrading. Use something like Macrium Reflect Free.
