My 9 month old Lenovo laptop ungraded without problem in about 50 minutes. A check with Lenovo then updated a couple of drivers. So far so good.

Sadly my rather old Win10 PC has failed the upgrade spec test - only TPM 1.2 and for some reason the Intel i5-3470 CPU @ 3.20GHz isn't supported.

Why bother to upgrade on an incompatible machine? If it is not up to the job it will work better on win10. These compatibility checks are there for a reason. I got an old laptop, I tried it on 11 and it ran like a 3 legged horse but is now a good fast machine on 10

I'm not going to upgrade the old desktop. Yes, it's old (c. 2013) so I'm not risking any by-pass or spoofing.
