Microsoft, in an email confirmation, has confirmed that Windows 10 updates won’t be coming to Intel Atom PCs anymore.
Technology goes obsolete quickly. Intel Atom PCs were updated to Windows 10 almost two years ago. But the owners of such PCs noticed that they were unable to upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10 Creators Update. Every time they tried to upgrade, they were greeted with a message saying “Windows 10 is no longer supported on this PC,” and were told to “uninstall this app now.”
“These systems are no longer supported by Intel (End of Interactive Support), and without the necessary driver support, they may be incapable of moving to the Windows 10 Creators Update without a potential performance impact,” Microsoft said in the statement.
Unfortunate for the Intel Atom PCs onwers, they first had to download 3GB worth of setup files for the Creators Update and when they tried installing the update, they were greeted with the “not supported” message, rather than being notified up front.
The devices running the processors mentioned below are no longer supported.
