SUMMARY

The Windows Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) is a compilation of computers and computer hardware that have been extensively tested with Windows for stability and compatibility. Microsoft Product Support Services uses the HCL to determine whether or not a computer is supported for use with the Windows operating system.

Before you install Windows on a computer, check the HCL to determine whether the computer is certified by Microsoft as Windows-compliant. The latest Windows HCL is available from the following Microsoft Web site:
