Get Windows 10 Now

Today is July 29. Windows 10 is now available. Microsoft has been taking reservations for the Windows 10 update leading up to today. There’s no telling when your system will actually be updated. However, Mashable is saying that there’s a way to get the newly released Windows 10 now instead of waiting for it. Forcing the update requires that you to access the command line and run this command.

C:\> wuauclt.exe/updatenow

I tried to do the upgrade, but I ran into another issue. I’m using an older motherboard with a Nvidia GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 GPU. Microsoft is telling me that the display manufacturer, which is nVidia, hasn’t made my display compatible with Windows 10. Microsoft says to check your manufacturer for support. Basically, I have two options. Wait for nVidia to tell Microsoft nForce 430 is compatible with Windows 10 or get a new GPU. The latter is the quickest fix.
