    Updating to the latest Windows 10 version fails for my LattePanda 4/64GB.

    During the upgrade process the following error message is displayed:

    This device isn't compatible with Windows 10. Contact the manufacturer for more info.
    Broadcom 802.11abgn Wireless SDIO Adapter.


    I've tried reinstalling Windows 10 using the latest download from the LattePanda website, but this still results in the update failing.

    Can you please advise how to work around this problem?
    Running the latest Windows 10 version with all updates is rather important for me!

    Thanks, installing the alternative driver solved the issue!

    I would recommend adding this information to the Windows 10 upgrade section on the Documentation site! That would have saved a lot of time for me and probably others in the future.

    Great to know! ;)
    The thing is this issue will just happen for our really early batch LattePanda. I think u've purchased LattePanda for up to 2 years. Is that correct? Coz we noticed this compatibility issue like 1 more year ago and change to another WIFI chip before.
