This article applies to computers already running Windows 10.  If your computer has a Windows 7, these steps will not update your computer to Windows 10

Before updating your Windows 10 Version, you should take some time to prepare your computer.  You do not need to be connected to Carleton's network to upgrade.  You can do the prep and upgrade from any location with a network connection.  Set aside time to work through this list.  Failing to do so could cause the upgrade to fail, rendering your computer unusable. You do not need to do these steps all at once, but you should keep track of what you have done so that you don't miss steps.

Windows 10 (1903) was released in May, 2019.

Desktop Systems staff have completed basic testing of upgrading from Windows 10 (1809).  The following items have been tested post upgrade:

  • All supported Dell, Lenovo, and Apple hardware
    • Display mirroring
    • Sound drivers
    • Wifi
  • Logging in as an existing user on the computer
  • Logging in as a new user on the computer
  • Installing Printers
  • GlobalProtect (installed before upgrade)
  • Eduroam
  • Logging in as an existing user with no network connection
  • K1000 User Self Service

These features are working as expected in our testing.
