ANY possible way to upgrade my Alienware M11XR2 to Windows 10?!

I can't believe I'm stuck on Windows 7 Ultimate.

RE: ANY possible way to upgrade my Alienware M11XR2 to Windows 10?!

Unfortunately, according to the policy document, the Alienware M1xXR2 series will not be supported on Windows 10. Some users have successfully installed Windows 10 on these non-supported systems, but they did all the driver investigation (example: installing 7/8/8.1 drivers) to force it to work. Dell does not have the resources to do this on non-supported systems. You could also try posting this on the Notebook Review and Alienware Arena forums for assistance.

I have an Alienware Area 51 ALX desktop (2009).  I was getting blue screens on my many attempts to install Win 10 and thought I was limited to Win 7.  It was suggested a new fresh install on a new hard drive was a possibility.  I bought a new 480GB SSD created a Win 10 .iso CD and did just that and all is working great.  Good luck.  By the way.  GET ACONIS.  It is a life saver!
