  1. Good day,

    I apologize in advance for posting in the wrong place.

    I have a Studio laptop from more than ten years ago. Windows 10 is refusing to install Feature update to Windows 10, version 1909 and I'm getting the message "You’re currently running a version of Windows that’s nearing the end of service. We recommend you update to the most recent version of Windows 10 to get the latest features and security improvements."

    Is there a How To for the update?


    1. The Studio laptops are pretty old it sounds like there is perhaps an incompatible driver hanging the upgrade install. Also Upgrade Installs can be problematic. Especially if this has been upgraded from Windows 7 to each subsequent build of Windows 10.

      Windows 10 Version 1803 and 1809 had some slight elevated requirements (less performance on older hardware) than Version 1709. In some really old models (older than the Studio Line) Version 1709 was the last to work. Windows Version 1903 and 1909 had elevated system requirements when it came to display (video drivers).

      You might be best to attempt a clean install but personally I wouldn't bother with Windows 10 Version 1909 at this stage. Windows 10 Version 2004 should be released to the mainstream track any day soon however you can get the Insider Preview Slow Track ISO which will take you onto what Microsoft have designated the final build.

      You can try an upgrade install from the Windows 10 Version 2004 ISO but I would back up all your files externally before doing so and would recommend a clean install over an upgrade install.
