    Windows 8.1


    It sounds like I should take HP's advice and stay with 8 since they said my PC wasn't designed for 10.

    I doubt that very much. Your computer is HP Envy dv7-what so I may look at the specs.
    Have you reserved your Win 10. If you have, click the icon then the hamburger symbol on the top left of the screen. What does it say?

    It took me a few minutes to figure out what a icon burger was

    But, yes...it's said no problems and that "I'm good to go"

    Cheers!

    Then you should be OK to run Win 10 unless something pops up.

    Computers running Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, were not designed for Windows 10 but are eligible for the upgrade. Seeing as its not officially released yet your not going to see very many, if any PC's with a Designed for Windows 10 sticker on them. The "not designed for Windows 10" comment was likely because there were no Windows 10 drivers for your device from the manufacturer. They are basically telling you, you're on your own if you upgrade, don't call us if you have issues. My desktop PC's aren't even designed for Windows 8 let alone Windows 10 and they can run 10.

    Cheers,
    As someone suggested earlier...try it and if it doesn't work properly go back.
    I'll definitely update my Macrium Reflect Image before I switch.

    I'm running 10 130 on an Asus M2N68-AM SE2 ATX Motherboard with a AMD Athlon II X4 620 2.6GHz. Nothing cutting edge there. That's my oldest and lowest spec'd PC in my house. 4GB of DDR2 Memory and a GeForce GT 610 PCIe Video card. Upgrade from Windows 7. I'll be here even if I don't end up running Windows 10. I likely will, on one PC, just so I can check things out.
