Install Windows 10 on HP Mini 1000 1030NR

This old HP Mini 1000 1030NR and I have been around the block a few times.  I came across it again recently and knew I needed to test Windows 10 on it, and it is easy to install Windows 10 on HP Mini 1000 1030NR.

For my test I installed Windows 10 Pro 32Bit Update 1511 from a USB thumb drive.  After the install and running Windows Update all drivers were installed which makes the install easy.  Below is the System Properties.

Windows 10 performs ok on the HP Mini 1000 1030NR, this laptop is getting up there in age but if you’re just doing email and creating documents then it should be ok.  There is a big reason to do this upgrade if you are using Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 and it has to do with the small screen resolution.  With Windows 10 you can run the apps from the
Windows Store without any issue. Also after the install and updates there is 5.12 GB of free space and that is without compressing the disk or any other tricks. With this Windows 10 is not a bad upgrade on the HP Mini 1000 1030NR.
