Many older PC's running Windows XP may not be compatible with Windows 10. In this movie, you will know the system requirements for a PC to run Windows 10, including proecessor speed, available random access memory, as well as hard disk space need to install Windows 10.
- [Voiceover] Way back when Windows XP…was first introduced to the world,…the computers required to run this operating system…did not need to be anywhere near as powerful…as they are today.…So for that reason, if you're running XP…on an older computer,…you'll first want to make sure that that computer…is going to be capable of running Windows 10…before you purchase it, and try to upgrade.…So let's take a look at the system requirements…to run Windows 10.…We'll begin with a processor that needs to be fairly quick,…1 gigahertz or faster.…
Next, you'll need some memory, random access memory,…at least a gigabyte for a 32-bit machine…and two gigabytes on a 64-bit machine.…Odds are if you're running…one of those really old computers,…you'll need to upgrade your RAM before you upgrade…to Windows 10.…Also, you'll need some hard disk space.…Now Windows 10 will be a clean installation,…so if you have the minimum 16 gigabytes on a 32-bit PC…or 20 gigabytes on a 64-bit PC,…you'll probably want even larger to install programs…
Note: Windows 10 is not a free upgrade for XP users. You will need to purchase Windows 10 before proceeding with the migration.
