Windows 10: Unfortunately this PC is unable to run Windows 10

    Unfortunately this PC is unable to run Windows 10


    I need some help please.
    I have a Dell Dimension E521 which is running Win7 ultimate fine.
    I reserved Win10 and have got the icon. It told me that I would not be able to upgrade because of my old graphics card. The old one was a Radeon X1300 256 MB and only running Direct X9. No problem I thought and changed the card to a NVidia GT610 2GB with drivers for win10. The system window shows this card and so does Everest but the Windows 10 system check is still stuck with the old card which is not even in the PC.

    How can I get Windows 10 system check to check properly?

    If anything fails, it will just revert back to the old version and let you know.

    Since you are downloading the files already anyway, I would just have a try.

    The Get Windows 10 tool updates its data using a task, which is run at some point. This is the first Google result which looks like it would enable you to manually run this task again: How to manually run Windows 10 Compatibility Appraiser

    You're being overly optimistic in your advice ... There are hundreds, if not thousands, of posts from folks on OEM forums who ran the Upgrade tool on their PCs only to have the upgrades fail -- and then, NOT revert back, and also have GoBack NOT work. There's even a thread on this forum about GoBack not being reliable.

    A much sounder and safer recommendation is to tell folks to do an image backup of their PC to an external drive BEFORE doing the upgrade. That way, they will have a RELIABLE way to restore their older, working system, if the update fails and does not revert properly.

    Ok. Well, that's where you come in I guess.
