I am reading some horror stories on this forum regarding upgrading the Dell ONE 2710 to Windows 10.
Specifically one person wrote they have a blank screen.
Another wrote they had no network connection to internet.
Others wrote they had to install NVIDIA drivers.
Has anyone actually had a successful install using the Media creation tool? What was your experience like? Did you have to install drivers from various websites?
Please clarify the gotcha's.
I have a mid-2012 (purchase Dec 2012) Dell ONE 2710. I was thinking about force upgrading it too. I am worried some drivers like video or network won't work.
Did you have to upgrade any drivers after/post the upgrade?
Every couple of months I'll do the Dell, NVIDIA, Realtek, Intel, etc. OEM websites visit to check on current drivers. I think I updated my graphic card (GT640) maybe and the Realtek drivers. My BIOS was already at A12 (08-27-13). I would not be surprised if your system would go through without any issues - someone else may correct me though.
Good luck - I really like the new windows...
How come other PC manufacturers have done the right thing and users can upgrade to Windows10? What is the holdup please? How can a modern PC not be upgradeable for weeks or months?
I have merged together the three separate threads on the XPS 2710 and Windows 10. As demonstrated by tjgarland the system is Windows 10 compatible.
My upgrade on the XPS 2710 worked without issue. It's ok to upgrade.
I did a detailed write up and posted it to this site, but the approver is not allowing it to go through because dell does not want people upgrading their 2710. Otherwise you will end up keeping your existing system.
I conducted a detailed analysis, and wrote it here. But this forum is not letting you pass through with it.
Wonder if it will allow this post?
From what I can tell, when people upgrade their 2710, the new win10 drivers for hardware within the 2710 are supplied by ms via the manufacturer of the sub assembly (e.g. video camera, graphics card, etc.) So, if MS has all of the needed win 10 drivers for the hardware within a computer there should not be a problem. Meaning you don't have to have the latest win 10 drivers as MS will install them. In fact, many of the drivers for graphic boards that work with win 10 won't work in previous versions of windows.
I know of some vendors are updating their win 19 drivers which ms send out as updates.
