Out of interest as i still have the advert saying this machine was 'future proof' when i bought it only 2 years ago, so its not exactly antique! Where do i stand legally for a refund if dell cant be bothered to update it for windows 10. So i don't own a multi national company therefore customer services goes out of the window.
FYI, I upgraded a Inspiron 530 MT, I purchased 8 years ago, from Windows 7 to Win-10 with only one issue, that was the graphics card driver, probably due to the fact the Nvidia card was an upgrade, installed by me, after the one Dell supplied failed.
Did not use the ISO download for the upgrade, but use the Microsoft's specific PC W-10 download that was delivered as part of their routine updates.
Note, the 530 default OS was Vista, then I 'upgraded' to XP, then to Win-7.
Don't worry, it will upgrade to Win 10. The drivers everyone worries about are linked to the hardware, not the OS. I have upgraded three units 8 to 10 years old. None of them had any Win 10 drivers unless the drivers were installed by Win 10. The only problems were the video drivers. All three work fine with generic video drivers installed by Windows. In addition allthree perform better with Win 10 than 8.1.
When will the XPS ONE 2710 be ready to upgrade to Windows 10?
I cant believe that such an advanced PC cannot upgrade to Windows 10 yet.
See here to carry out the free upgrade to Windows 10:
Ensure you make Recovery Media with the latest version of Dell Backup and Recovery in advance:
Thank you for writing to the Dell Community Forum.
Dell XPS One 2710 has not been tested for upgrade to Windows 10. The hardware has not been tested and drivers have not been updated for that model, and Dell does not recommended an upgrade to Windows 10. If you wish to proceed with an upgrade to Windows 10 on an untested system, Microsoft provides information and support for upgrade through their upgrade website.
Please check the following link for more info:
This system should upgrade fine and most the drivers required should be inbuilt or automatically obtained via Windows Update for Windows 10. See here:
Can you please send me a copy of the future proof document to [Admin NOTE: Email ID removed per TOU policy] I am in the same position as my 2710 they say won't be supported under win 10
I am also waiting for Windows10 to be validated for XPS One 2710, could you please indicate an approximate date when this will be complete.
Kind regards, Will
