I am farming more penguins for my company. The very few Win 10 machines we have have been a disaster. MS can take their dirty tactics and go home.
Microsoft is going to get a lot of people mad for this latest trick. As Platypus said, you were able to install the OS on the comptuer, it runs fine but because of Microsoft tactics, you will no longer get security updates through Windows Updates. It still needs to be confirmed if a person can download and install updates through the catalog.
Is there another option besides upgrading the operating system to Windows 10? Updates that are released for Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 are also made available on the Microsoft Update Catalog website.
I don't have access to one of the processors mentioned on the support page, but it is possible that manual installation of updates released for Windows 7 or 8.1 still works. While this means more work for the user, as it is necessary to monitor update releases to run searches on the Microsoft Update Catalog whenever they are released, it may be an option to keep on using the older version of Windows.
Microsoft does not mention this explicitly on the support page, but it does not deny it either.
