Hitachi High-Tech in Europe

On July 29, 2015, Microsoft Corporation released the Windows® 10 Operating System. It is strongly advised that users of Hitachi electron microscopy products refrain from updating the operating system on these products until a notification regarding Windows 10 is received from a Hitachi High-Tech company.

The Hitachi High-Tech Development Team has not fully evaluated the Windows 10 deployment process and therefore cannot guarantee compatibility with Hitachi electron microscopy products and associated software. Please do not install Windows 10 on any PC or device used with any Hitachi electron microscopy equipment and/or software. If installed, your equipment or software may not function normally and in some cases may cause serious problems.

Problems caused by upgrading to Windows 10 will not be covered, even if the equipment or software is under warranty or service contract.
