Upgrading from Vista to Windows 10

890 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  flavallee
I have an old Gateway notebook. Model ML6732. I want to see if it is up gradable to Windows 10. I don't care if everything gets deleted in the process. There seems to be some talk about "Secure Boot". I don't think Windows 10 care if it's on or off. Hopefully it is just a matter of enough RAM etc.

The SNID/Serial no. of your device is T0384V1017236

That machine is very old. I seriously doubt it'll be able to handle Windows 10.
But you can always try to install it to see if it'll run. Especially since you don't care about any data.
It does have 3G of memory. Processor an Intel Dual T2370. I noticed it said 64bit ready in my report but the OS is currently 32 bit? Does that mean I could actually try Windows 10 64bit? I only downloaded the 32 bit since that was what was listed in the System Properties. Of course, 32 bit might be better on an older machine??
These are the marketing specs for the Gateway ML6732 laptop which originally came with Windows Vista:
Intel Pentium Dual Core T2370 or T2390 processor
Font Rectangle Logo Paper product Brand
Rectangle Font Parallel Screenshot Logo

3 GB DDR2-533 MHz RAM (supports up to 4 GB)
320 GB SATA 5400 RPM hard disk drive
DVD-RW disc drive
Intel GMA X3100 integrated graphics
Sigmatel audio
Realtek 802.11a/b/g wireless
Realtek 10/100 Mbps ethernet
Agere 56K V.92 modem

The hardware in that laptop is too old and too slow to run Windows 10.
And it's not likely that Windows 10 drivers exist for all of its devices.
