Sorry, I looked to see if this had been discussed and did not see a forum.  I am sure I missed it though.  However, is the X8 suitable for Windows 10?  I am working with W8 now, but would like to upgrade, but my CA must work with it  Just making sure before I do.

 

 

Thanks,

X8 was designed to run in Windows 10. Notice in my signature that in my Windows 10 I have running apps all the way back to X1 and many versions of Home Designer as well.

I don't think they are going to AUTO-upgrade everyone... they will just stop supporting Win 8 at some time

Thanks for all the input.  Will upgrade tomorrow (supposed to be nasty outside anyways).  Will let "all" know if there are issues.

Mr. P, I've forgotten exactly why you can't upgrade.

Something about Dell not providing drivers? How

does this manifest itself? Do you not have access

to the Win 10 download? Or will the download not

complete? Have you considered making an

installation disk and installing Win 10 that way.

I used this approach on a rig I have the isn't

connected to the internet. Win 10 installs some

generic drivers for your hardware. If the installation

isn't working for you, you can uninstall Win 10 and

go back to your original OS as long as you do it

within 30 days. After that you would have to reinstall

your old OS to get it back.

 

It just seems that there must be a way. After all

Microsoft wants there to be a way. They want

everybody to be on Win 10.

There is a known issue concerning old OEM recovery partitions preventing Windows 10 from installing. I believe Dell, HP and Lenovo systems have this potential issue. Had this on a ThinkPad. Deleted the old recovery partition and then Windows 10 installed properly.

I didn't have a recovery partition to start with, b/c when I installed an ssd drive, it couldn't copy the recovery partition. As far as the boot sector , I had to enlarge it, that fixed that.   I get to 99% and it always reverts back to windows 8.1.  At this time I really didn't want to do a clean install b/c it takes me 3 days to do it, and I'm going to get a new computer soon anyway, so it would be a waste of time right now.

 

Thank for the info.

your right, Dell refuses to update the drivers on my 5 year old machine, the problem being it still works great. When I purchased it ,paid a lot of money to get top of the line so it would last longer. I guess I learned my lesson. 5 or 6 years was good though.
