I am just not 100% SURE if that is true or accurate. Would just have liked to hear back from somebody who actually upgraded this model Dell.
Thanks for your feedback.
You're not able to free downgrade from win 7 to Win 8.1.
And in my opinion, Win 10 is better than win 8.1, and you can downgrade it for free.

Make sure you have all you need to reinstall win 7. Seen many people that tried Win 10, didn't like it and came back to win 7.

Thank you for you input. Yes, I'm going for it for sure! I had an even older Dell Laptop from 2009 and decided to put a clean install of Windows 10 (took 32-bit). Installing went smoothly. Was some hickups with Windows update but used the Windows Update troubleshooter and it worked fine. So I will definately go with installing Windows 10 64 bit on the Dell 2320 All in One.



My only question is pecking order of when to do updates, installing software, etc. Do you suggest getting all the older drivers working before updating Windows? For example, they have a Lexmark printer that only has Windows 8 drivers. Should I get all those drivers going before Updating? I know that after installing MS Office, it does require updates, service packets, etc. Would appreciate your input.

Don't think you have to concern on finding drivers prior the win 10 installation.
The installation disk has most of the needed drivers. An "upgrade" installation, (run win 10 setup on running windows) will install win 10 and replace the needed drivers with new versions.
There is nothing like a clean install (start from scratch), but then you may need to find a specific driver.
After installation, open device manager and look for yellow alerts of missing drivers (if any).

After you're done installing if you're connected to the internet it should download any missing drivers not on the installation media. Once you've got everything working perfectly make an image!
