    I am not sure my system is supported now . I have a Dell all-in-one inspiron 20/20. I think the resolution I use is no longer supported by the operating system but can't say for sure.

    You can see my specs and what resolutions I used for windows 7, 10 & Linux Mint.

    @TairikuOkami

    I read the whole article custom oem images order by the customer, don't need to have UEFI/TPM /Secure Boot enabled. I don't see how that is going to work with new systems that are x86 (32bit).

    I don't think Microsoft is thinking clearly. Let say you upgrade your system to windows 10 November update and you met the system requirements. Then Microsoft release an anniversary update but your system doesn't meet the requirements. What are you suppose to do? Can you keep the November update without the Anniversary update trying to install?
