    Are they kidding? It is Intel core-i3 with 8GB RAM what more do you need for Windows 10! It is a DESKTOP operating system for God's sake! Not a NASA's supercomputer system!

    I think that most HPC arrays now run Linux variants.

    Yes because Linux is Free while Windows not. And supposedly Linux is more secure. I personally believe that Windows can be secure once you install a good antivirus and firewall and of course be careful not to click YES in every prompt you see!

    I'm sure Samsung just hasn't certified it for 10, and won't officially "support" it. But my bet is that it would run it ok.

    Problem solved


    Recently spent a couple of hours with two gentlemen at the Microsoft online help desk. After being referred to the second chap he conducted a repair on my 8.1 installation from Tweaking.com. After which we installed Windows 10 without hitch.

    So problem was in the 8.1 operating system and although Samsung said the laptop wasn't compatible I am now a happy Win 10 camper.

    Thank you All for your support.

    Glad to hear you got Windows 10 working. Other viewers, don't believe manufacturers that their computer is not compatible with Windows 10. As long as you can find drivers for Windows Vista and newer for all the devices, then IT IS compatible. It's just the manufacturer don't want you to do it, they would rather buy a new model.

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?
