    Friend just ask if she could put windows 10 on her Dell Deminsion (sp) 2850. I told her I didn't think so but would check with the experts.
    Any help?
    Thanks.

    What's the exact 7-character "service tag" number on that Dell 2850?
    Once it's correctly identified, it'll be easier to answer your question.

    Is it actually a Dell PowerEdge 2850 which was first introduced in 2006?
    If it is, Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 are its only supported Windows operating systems.

    Service Tag #: HBFYD21, if she read it correctly.

    According to that service tag number, your friend has THIS Dell Dimension 2350 desktop.
    It was purchased in February 2003 in the United States and came with Windows XP Home Edition 32-bit.
    Considering it's almost 17 years old and has extremely old and slow hardware, Windows 10 likely won't install and run in it.
