Dell, HP and Toshiba List Systems Compatible with the Windows 10 Creators Update

Update: Lenovo, Acer and Samsung List Systems Compatible with the Windows 10 Creators Update

OEM vendors such as Dell, HP and Toshiba have published list of systems compatible with the latest revision of Windows 10 called the Creators Update, version 1703. As with every new version of Windows 10 coming to market, some models are likely to no longer be supported by the manufacturer. This can be due to a number of reasons, including end of life, incompatible components or warranty obligations have been exhausted. Even if this is the case, it doesn't necessarily mean you can't install the Windows 10 Creators Update. In fact, users have been able to upgrade or perform a clean install without issue on systems no longer supported by the manufacturer. What I have witnessed in support forums where users experience problems upgrading, the upgrade routine doesn't work at all, but a clean install works just fine. That said, instead of burning your bridges, users should ensure they create a backup of their current installation before attempting to install Windows 10 1703.

Below are links to systems supported by each vendor:

Other manufacturers such as Lenovo haven't posted any updates yet, but a search revealed information regarding required updates to chipset driver software in order to use the Windows 10 Creators Update.

Users should check the manufacturers website for their particular model periodically to find out about support. As with previous releases, Microsoft will use a staggered approach to rollout the Windows 10 Creators Update over time. Don't be surprised if it takes a few months for the update to show up in Windows Update on your system. High priority systems include those supporting hero features in Windows 10 such as Hello biometric recognition, UEFI firmware and TPM 1.2. Remember to check out the following guide for a list of things you should do before upgrading:

I wish that Windows would not have "automatically" updated our machines before we knew all of that!  I would not have decided to go to that "Creator Update" if I had known!  But there has been a major update, and I was not asked if I wanted it, it just happened!

Since that "nightmare" day, my machine hasn't been working, and not because I did not try!  ... And today, I received help from my vendor to restore my machine...  But unfortunately, there was no choice but to restore to the factory state...  I sure do hope that all the copies I could do through the local network last week will be useful, because if not, I will have just loose everything!  

Thanks!
