Please don’t install Windows 10 on your UWA-owned computer.

Monday, 27 July 2015

Microsoft has announced that the next version of the Windows operating system, Windows 10, will be released shortly.  Many staff may have already seen a free upgrade offer appear on their home computers.

Whilst you may choose to take up the offer to upgrade at home, please do not attempt to install Windows 10 on a UWA-owned computer, even if the upgrade offer appears. Doing so may mean you are no longer able to work with UWA business applications, and there is little that the IT team may be able to do to support you until a formal release.
