OEM vendors Lenovo, Acer and Samsung have published list of systems compatible with the latest revision of Windows 10 called the Creators Update, version 1703. Dell, HP and Toshiba recently published their list of compatible systems. 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 ended. 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: Lenovo Acer Samsung Vendors such as Packard Bell, MSI and ASUS are yet to publish any list. Sony does not have a list with specific version compatibility, users will just have to search their database find out about general support.
If you use a Apple Macintosh and plan to install the Windows 10 Creators Update version 1703; you should first install the previous release called the Anniversary Update or version 1607. Users attempting to install the Creators Update directly through the Boot Camp software, will encounter an error. Microsoft is still offering the Windows 10 Anniversary Update as an available download. After installing the Anniversary Update, users can then use the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant to upgrade to Creators Update.

Microsoft has been trying to force my computer to install the Win 10 Anniversary Update since it came out. It starts with the usual blue screen updates install and finishes that part. Then on reboot, the black screen comes up with the circle of balls going around. They never stop. I've let it go for an entire day. I do a power button hard shut down and it comes back with text saying it is recovering or continuing the interrupted upgrade. After three hard shutdowns using the power button, it comes back with "reinstalling the old version of Windows 10". Okay, I don't care if I get the anniversary upgrade or not, my computer runs great as long as Microsoft isn't trying to infect it. The problem is the time it takes to clean up the Microsoft screw up. I want the regular security updates, so I don't want to shut off the update downloads and I don't want to keep having this issue where Microsoft is trying to force this update down my computers throat when it won't go. I have an AMD system 64GB ram with 2 Radion Video cards running 3 screens. I am not running a 3rd party AntiVirus. All of the other computers in my house upgraded just fine.
