    Hi,

    I am asking myself if I should upgrade to windows 10 or not.
    I am using windows 7 right now.
    About drivers, on the dell page, there is only drivers for windows 7 and 8.1. Can I still upgrade to windows 10 without them?

    Thanks,
    Joce

    Running it right now. Works just fine. Win 8.1 drivers install just fine if you need to install

    I upgraded from Windows 8.1 so my best guess is that all the drivers for 8.1 and 8 works. I haven't needed to install any driver, OSD and Command Center works.

    Maybe you should wait. Some people are reporting that either the new OS Win10, or its new Nvidia driver has caused their R2 display panel to stop working. Most notably Mr. Fox, was a victim of this, and he has started a thread and the thread is expanding quickly.

    Windows 10 seems to be killing LCD's in AW18's r2's and well anything with NVidia cards it seems (laptop wise)... Don't be a beta tester for M$ and pay the price.
