The end of June marked the best news for Windows PC owners. Microsoft has officially released the new operating system, which will be available to users in early October, and will allow all Windows 10 owners to install the update. More details about the upgrade process are now clear.
Since the introduction of Windows 11, it is clear that Windows 10 users can easily and freely upgrade, but Microsoft has not provided any information about the upgrade process for older versions. It is now becoming clear that many manufacturers are already preparing their products for operation with the new platform. Thanks to Lenovo, the situation is becoming clearer.
Lenovo says users of the Windows 7 operating system will be able to upgrade to a newer version of Windows 11, but this requires a completely new installation. This means that those who want to upgrade will not be able to install the update through Windows Update and will have to download the operating system update again.
“Many of our products will be upgraded to Windows 11. You can upgrade or re-download to computers running Windows 10. To meet system requirements, Windows 7 users will need to perform a clean installation,” Lenovo said in a statement.
It is clear that Windows 7 users will also be able to upgrade to Windows 11, which means that Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 users can also upgrade. If you have a computer running one of these version versions, we recommend that you upgrade to Windows 10 now, and then you can start using the latest version of the Microsoft operating system in October. This allows you to save all the files on your computer.
