    There is another trick to force the Windows 10 Update instead of waiting for your machine to be targeted for days, weeks, months checking Windows update.

    This was posted in a couple of other threads by fellow member Azcamm and he/she deserves full credit for the trick.

    How to Force Download Windows 10 for PC or Tablet
    I just tried this method on the HP Desktop and the Windows 10 download started instantly, now I have to restart to begin installation.

    I updated my desktop computer (under system specs) from 8.1 and everything works like a charm, even olde games. I love it.

    I tried on my netbook (ATOM N455, 2GB DDR3, 300GB HD), and everything works, all drivers detected automatically, metro apps working, but it performs awful, using 20% CPU to simply move the mouse, all animations lag a lot, takes seconds to open and draw a window, and the generic SATA driver constantly throws timeout errors with micro-freezes (Intel RST doesn't install on 10). Reverted back to 7.
    My father's laptop is an ancient one that doesn't support newer than Vista (it has XP).

    There is no need to force anything, just use the update tool - Windows 10 - Upgrade Installation - Windows 10 Forums

    I don't know if there's a need or not but in my system that method did not work. WIN 7 Update just gave me an error and that's it. Now I am trying the new update tool. It is still downloading (again). I hope it will work this time...

    @z3r010 I just wanted to see if this method would work to receive the update directly through WU immediately instead of waiting but also to validate it.

    I am happy to report the upgrade from 8.1 to 10 was successful & now I will use the "media creation tool" to create USB installation media for a clean install later.

    Yeah, so my upgrade from 10240 went smoothly. Haven't noticed any instabilities or other issues. Everything seems the same as it was.

    The upgrade used about 13GB of additional space to complete, before a manual clean-up, so take that into account if you're doing it on a small partition.

    The system is activated and version number is the same: 10240.

    I originally started off, a couple of weeks ago, from a clean install of 10162, upgraded to 10240 then to this release.

    I'll wait until I know what's what before doing a clean install on this and my other systems.

Is there a thread for Win10 on old computers?
Search didn't turn up any general threads. Curious if there's any interest here on running Win10 on really really old hardware just for fun and of course report on actual usability.

W10 Insider Prev upgrade to Win10 full vs of W7/8 upgrade to W10
Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?
