Since January 2017, Windows 10 will be our primary operating system for Windows and will now be installed by default. Please see Features of Windows 10

Windows 10 is optional at the moment. We can install Windows 7 on your new staff computer or device if you wish (see Standard build for staff computers).

Who can get Windows 10?

Windows 10 is available to staff who:

  • order a new staff desktop computer (Purchase hardware and Desktop computer renewal);
  • have a current staff computer that is an HP EliteDesk G1 or newer;
  • have a Microsoft SurfaceBook;
  • have a Surface Pro 4.

It is not available to staff with older computers.
