    Should I upgrade to windows 10?


    Hi all,

    I have myself a dell latitude D630 with windows 7 home premium that is genuine.

    I am thinking about upgrading to windows 10, however, will my laptop slow down a lot from upgrading? If not, will it slow down over time? I heard windows 10 will get more demanding as time goes on, is this true?

    Thanks all and I can't wait to see other thoughts since I can't make up my mind.


    My laptop specs are listed below my profile

    :)

    I would upgrade to Windows 10 now while I can.

    then try upgrading manually:

    Option 1:

    Download the Media Creation Tool Now

    Right click the MediaCreationTool.exe file then click
    Run as administrator.

    Option 2:

    Pre-requisite Task

    When making significant changes to your computer such as updating the operating system, you should always backup.
    See links to resources about backing up by clicking the link for the respective version of Windows you are running:

    Windows XP
    ,
    Windows Vista
    ,
    Windows 7
    ,
    Windows 8/8.1



    then


    then

    • Disable
      (preferrably uninstall)
      your Antivirus utility before attempting the upgrade.
    • Restart a few times then try again.
    • Disable General USB Devices (example - Smart Card Reader).
    • If you are using a SCSI hard disk, make sure you have drivers available for your storage device on a thumdrive and it is connected. During Windows 10 setup, click the Custom Advanced Option and use the Load Driver command to load the appropriate driver
      for the SCSI drive. If this does not work and setup still fails, consider switching to a IDE based hard disk.
    • Perform a
      clean boot
      , restart then try again.
    • If you are upgrading using the .ISO file, disconnect from the Internet during setup, if you are connected by LAN (Ethernet) or Wi-Fi, disable both then attempt setup again.
    • If you are updating through Windows Update, when the download reaches 100% disconnect from the Internet LAN (Ethernet) or Wi-Fi then proceed with the installation.
    • If that does not work, try using the .ISO file to upgrade if possible.
    • If you are connected to a domain, switch to a local account.
    • If you have any external devices attached to the machine, disconnect them (example, gaming controllers, USB keys, external hard disk, printers, non-essential devices).

  3. Should I upgrade to Windows 10?

    If you have windows 7, do not up-date
    to Windows 10 or 8 it's a no ending pain! I wanted to go back to Windows 7, as Windows 8 was almost as bad as Windows 10, which is worse! Besides going back to Windows 7 and 8 are out-of-date! Bummer!

    Should I upgrade to windows 10?

    You should make an image of your Windows 7 and upgrade to Windows 10 so that you get the digital entitlement while it is free. Then if you don't like it, restore the windows 7 image.

    Dell doesn't support the Windows 10 upgrade on the D630. That doesn't mean that the laptop is incompatible, but that you won't get any help from Dell with drivers.

    I don't personally recommend going from 7 to 10. 10 is more of an upgrade over Win 8, in my opinion, if only because the integration of the desktop and the interface once known as Metro is poor in 8 (or 8.1).

    If you choose to upgrade anyway (as Microsoft would prefer), you shouldn't see a slowdown in normal operation. I doubt that will change in the future.

    If you go with the upgrade, be sure to have a means of imaging your current Win 7 installation. It's the most reliable way of going back if you decide to do so. (Everyone should have that capability anyway, for backup.)
