Can anybody help me how to upgrade Inspiron 580 desktop to Windows 10?

Hi, I spent countless hours and download allowance trying to upgrade my Inspiron 580 desktop from Windows 7  to Windows 10 - this after the initial checks told me that is was compatible (last year).

After going over my data allowance three times, I had to stop the automated Windows updates (Win 10) and contacted Microsoft Support - they tried various time to assist via remote control, without success - and only yesterday the ninth differend MS Customer Support agent checked if the Inspiron 580 is in fact (still?) compatible for a Windows 10 upgrade.

Imagine my surprise and frustration, when she sent me a link that my desktop PC was not compatible - hence my note here now: Anybody can give me hints and tips how to successful upgrade to Win 10, which drivers to look out for (which I might need to change) and what else I need to be careful of.

Thanks for any help and advice!

Press [Windows] and [ r ] and type in msinfo32 and press [Enter]. Ensure your Legacy BIOS revision is A07. If not update it to A07:

Once your Legacy is up to date. Clean Install Windows 10 RS1:
