    Not everyone will get Windows 10 on its July 29th release date ...Sony PC warning


      From Microsoft:


      Windows 10 comes out on July 29th, but you might have to wait until

      later to get it. Microsoft said today that it would be rolling out

      Windows 10 in waves, "slowly scaling up" the rollout as it sees how

      things are going. The intention seems to be playing it safe and making

      sure that Windows 10 is getting a good response and running smoothly

      across the millions of different systems out there. Microsoft may even

      issue updates to Windows 10 between its July 29th release date and the

      time that some early adopters are actually able to download it.

                Sony will not support any update to Windows 10 for any computer that has/came with Windows 7 or earlier. No drivers, no nothing. You have been warned.




                Windows 10 information - July 17 Update




                As announced by Microsoft on June 1, Windows 10 - their latest operating system - is scheduled to launch on July 29.


                WARNING: There is a risk of software/driver corruption. We therefore strongly recommend that you do not upgrade to Windows 10 when it becomes available on July 29.


                Sony is now testing Windows 10 and will be providing compatibility information  during the summer of 2015. The release schedule will vary according to the different products.


                With regards to Sony VAIO personal computers, we are preparing a Windows 10 upgrade procedure – together with the necessary drivers and software* – for compatible models released after October 2012 (which were delivered with the Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 operating system preinstalled). Please note that Sony is currently not planning on providing an upgrade procedure, nor drivers and utilities, for older models which were released with Windows 7 or previous versions of Windows preinstalled.


                Please wait until the upgrade information is released. Visit our support website regularly  for the latest information and updates about this topic. 


                *Note that some of the functions, utilities or other software on your computer might be missing or not working properly after the Windows 10 upgrade.
