Home » Windows RT Won’t Upgrade to Windows 10

Everybody has been hugely excited at the news that Microsoft will make Windows 10 free even for pirated versions. However, it seems that Windows RT won’t get it, which makes the ill-fated OS pretty much useless for those looking to get the latest Windows version.

During Microsoft’s Windows Hardware Engineering Community (WinHEC) event in China, the company has revealed many details regarding Windows 10. The Redmond-based firm once again reiterated the system requirements which are pretty much on par with Windows 8.1, but also spoke about the upgrade paths, as you can see in the above screenshot.

And what we make out of it are the following details:

  • Windows 7 RTM users will be able to upgrade to Windows 10 by ISO only, SP1 users by ISO and Windows Update, as well
  • Windows 8 and 8.1 RTM users will be able to upgrade only by ISO but those with Windows 8.1 S14 will be able to use Windows Update, as well
  • Windows Phone users will need to get 8.1 update in order to update only via Windows Update
  • Windows RT upgrade to Windows 10 is not supported

Alas, if you are running Windows RT on your device, maybe the original Surface or the Nokia tablet, you won’t be able to get Windows 10. So, what’s your take on this? Leave your angry comment below.
