    Perhaps any 'known issues' for your device are minor, so it's not being recommended but you are free to try it if you would like?

    I get a similar wording on a 1909 device that MS thinks is ready for 2004, but without the "We're making sure it's ready for your device...." part.

    It's my 2nd newest machine. A Dell Latitude E7440, originally shipped March 2014. Clean install (GPT/UEFI) in December 2018.

    Only reason I asked is there seems to be more success with old hardware than newer. Your Dell is 4th gen. Not ancient by any means, just may not fall into the Known Issues trap.

    Agreed, and MS seem to think 'old is best' too. My first machine to be offered 2004 on the 27th May, within 15 minutes of the official release, was System One from 2011 in my specs below.

    With one notable exception all my machines were offered 2004 in descending order of age - oldest first, newest last. At no time did any of them say 'not quite ready'. They all went straight from nothing showing in Windows Update to 'The next version of Windows is available.... Download now'.

    My PCs are all between 6 and 9 years old and they were all offered the upgrade as soon as it was available as well.

    Thanks. That just verifies again what we're all seeing.
