Windows 10 Compatibility and preparation

If you’ve already begun planning a wide-scale Windows 10 deployment, congratulations! You’re ahead of the vast majority of your peers. But even if you aren’t ready to begin a major migration, you can certainly make life easier on your future self by doing two things now:

■ First, take inventory of your existing hardware and make some intelligent decisions for future purchases.

■ Second, start some pilot projects to familiarize yourself and other members of the IT staff with Windows 10.

Existing touchscreen-equipped devices running Windows 8.1 offer a straightforward upgrade path to Windows 10, using Windows Update.

For conventional (non-touch) desktop PCs and laptops running Windows 7 Service Pack 1, there’s an equally straightforward path to Windows 10. In fact, Windows 10 is available as a free upgrade on any PC with a properly activated copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 (also known as “Genuine Windows”).

Windows 10 is also compatible with most virtualization software, including Hyper-V in Windows Server installations and Windows 8.1 PCs.
