Buy now Buy now Windows 10 is finally here for a price of $399 (and the price is coming down with each subsequent upgrade), but you can’t get the Windows 10 upgrade without an older desktop.
It’s an issue we’ve been hearing for years, and it seems to have been a sticking point for a few customers, especially when Windows 10 gets bumped from its usual April update date.
The Windows 10 Anniversary Update is rolling out this week to Windows Insiders, but the upgrade will only be available to Windows 10 PCs that have been updated to Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.
This means that you can only get Windows 10 on older machines that have had at least one update to the OS.
The upgrade will come to all users in the following Windows 10 build categories: Enterprise, Education, Home and Student.
The upgrade will also be available in Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Professional, although we don’t have the details on how long the upgrade is going to take.
As part of the Anniversary Update, Microsoft is upgrading Windows 10 to version 10.16.3.
This update is only for Windows 10 Insiders who already have the Anniversary Edition installed on their PC.
If you have not yet installed the Anniversary edition of Windows 10, Microsoft has provided a way to download the update without needing to download a new version of Windows.
If that’s not an option, you can download the Anniversary update and then install it on your PC.
The Anniversary update comes with a number of changes.
The biggest one is a new “Automatic Update Service” (AUS) that helps install and update apps, updates, and settings faster.
The new update also includes the ability to disable automatic updates in Settings, a feature that’s very useful for those that prefer not to have to manually install updates.
You can get Windows 7 and Windows 8 users to install the Anniversary Upgrade with the following instructions:Go to Settings > Update & security > Automatic Updates, then tap the “Apply” button.
If you have a Windows 10 PC that’s already upgraded to Windows 8, go to Settings and tap the update you want to install.
You should see the following screen:This is your Windows 10 installer screen.
The “Automatically install updates” option is disabled.
If the check box is checked, you’ll see the Automatic Update Service (AUSS) notification.
Once you’ve installed the update, you should see an “Install” screen in the top right corner.
This is the screen where you can now check “Check for updates” to ensure that updates are installed automatically.
If your PC is still not running the Anniversary upgrade, you need to go to the Windows Update page and check that you have the latest version.
If no update is available for download, the update is still installed and ready to download.
You’re now ready to install and run the update.
Here are the steps you’ll have to follow:This page will ask you to download an archive of Windows updates from Microsoft’s website.
It will ask if you want the download to be “over-the-air” or “download only.”
If you don’t want to do that, you will be asked to enter the location of the PC you want Windows 10 installed on.
You will see a notification that the download is now complete.
Once the download completes, you may want to close the screen and close any apps that aren’t running.
If all goes well, the “Checking for updates…” screen should look like this:Once you finish installing Windows 10 Insider Preview, you’re good to go.
You can download a copy of Windows for free from the Microsoft Store.
