    Windows 10 Compatibility for HP DV6?
    ==========================================

    Thanks for replies to my postings.

    My HP Pavillion dv6-2066dx AMD processor came with OEM installed Win 7 and AMD processor.

    As Microsoft stopped Win 7 updates, I am thinking of getting to win 10

    I am hearing stories that say win 10 is not compatible with HP Pavillion dv6-2066dx AMD processor.

    I did find the DIY 2019 tax software claims , it has issues with win 7 laptop install and it will not work
    properly with win 7 .

    We know that win 10 is not stable either.

    What are the options , I have ?

    Thanks for your guidance.

    :)
