Dear Customer,

 


 

HP and Microsoft have a long-standing relationship. We
work closely with Microsoft in developing technology that makes the most
of the Windows operating system. Our current products are designed for
the latest security and productivity features of Windows 10, while still
supporting legacy Windows environments.

 


 

 

However, Microsoft policy changes affect our ability to
offer legacy Windows operating systems pre-installed. These policy changes
apply to every PC original equipment manufacturer (OEM), including HP.
