Dell and Lenovo are testing loads of devices to see if they’re compatible with the latest version of Windows 10.
What you need to know
- Dell and Lenovo recently shared pages that list which devices have been tested for compatibility with the Windows 10 May 2020 Update.
- While some devices that haven’t been checked will receive the update, Dell won’t provide drivers for untested PCs.
- Lenovo’s list also includes several issues involving Windows 10 version 2004 on Lenovo laptops and how to fix them.
The Windows 10 May 2020 Update is gradually rolling out to devices, and Dell and Lenovo recently shared pages on which devices have been tested for compatibility (via Deskmodder). The pages make it easy to search for a device to see if its manufacturer has tested the latest version of Windows 10 on it.
On Lenovo’s support page you can use the “Select Your Product” feature or search your device’s serial number to see if Lenovo has tested it with the Windows 10 May 2020 Update. There’s also a jump list at the top of the page for different types of Lenovo machines, including ThinkPad laptops, Lenovo Notebook/Ideapad, ThinkStation devices, and more. Clicking on one of these takes you straight to the corresponding section. The support page also includes a list of issues that some devices are having and how to fix them. We covered those issues in more detail earlier today.
Dell’s page is similar to Lenovo’s in that it has jumplists for different categories of devices and a long list of PCs tested for compatibility with the Windows 10 May 2020 Update. As pointed out by OnMSFT, even if your device doesn’t appear on the list of tested devices, it might still receive the Windows 10 May 2020 Update. But Dell said that it will not provide driver updates for untested machines, stating, “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.”
