Dell has published a list of Dell computers that are supported for Windows 10 2004.

Ever since Windows 10 May 2020 Update shipped, it’s been causing different types of problems for some users. A major concern is that the OS is failing to install on certain PCs for reasons like driver incompatibility. Microsoft has even put some of the affected devices on a compatibility hold, preventing them from getting the update.

However, it has become clear that the new OS is not entirely to blame for the installation errors that some users are reporting. So, if you are a Dell PC user and wish to upgrade your OS, be sure to check out the list to confirm compatibility.

Windows 10 2004 compatible devices include Dell XPS

Some of the compatible Dell brands and models include Alienware, Inspiron, XPS, and Vostro desktops and notebooks.

For any device to appear in the list, Dell must have tested it for Windows 10 2004 support. The company will not be testing or updating drivers for PCs not in the list.

However, Dell doesn’t rule out the possibility that your device may be compatible with the May 2020 update even if it hasn’t undergone testing.

So, you can go ahead and install the OS on an untested PC anyway. But you may experience some hardware compatibility issues even after installing generic drivers from Microsoft.

Dell laptops and desktops that have been tested for update to Windows 10 May 2020 Update (Build 2004), as well as previous versions of Windows 10. If your device is not listed in the tables below, Dell is not testing the device and drivers will not be updated for that model. If your device shipped with a version of Windows 10, drivers are available for that version and testing is not necessary.
