STOP – Read Before Installing Windows 10

windows 10


Windows  10 is due to be released tomorrow. I suggest to read this list of things to do before you jump into the Windows 10 pool. It will make your life much easier.

  1. I would not take the plunge right away. The latest preview release is very stable but the final release will probably have some issues. Take your time and do it right.
  2. Check the hardware compatibility list before you even think about the upgrade. The hardware list can be found here and is subject to change.
  3. Check your software and see if it will run on Windows 10.
  4. Make sure you have all the installation media for your software with the install keys handy.
  5. Take a backup of all your data before doing the upgrade.
  6. Schedule the upgrade to be run after Windows tells you.
  7. Check and make sure everything is running fine.

If you do these 7 steps your Windows 10 upgrade will go much smoother. Good luck
