Schedule - Migration to Windows 10

Trent Imaged Machines


Please note that this is a TENTATIVE schedule for compatible, Trent-imaged computers. This schedule is subject to change, so please refer back periodically to confirm your planned migration date. Site visits are no longer required, as all models are now an auto-migration process. You will receive e-mail communication the week prior to, and the day of, your scheduled migration. 

Automated Migration (Phase I):

Schedule is for compatibleTrent-imaged computers throughout the month of July per the list below. This phase did not include Optiplex 780 and Optiplex 790 models (for these, see Phase II). 

Not on campus on your scheduled Phase I migration date?

No worries. If you have a compatible model that is NOT an Optiplex 780 or 790, you should see the automated prompt within 3-4 hours of logging into the campus network. If you have not seen the prompt, please send an email to it@trentu.ca and an IT Staff member will contact you.

Automated Migration (Phase II)

*Note: Originally planned as site visits, this phase has now been automated for Optiplex 780 and 790 models (check model # on the front of your tower). These migrations will be rolled out to Departments through the month of August, 2017 per the posted Phase II schedule below.

If your Department is noted as N/A under Phase II below and you have an Optiplex 780 or Optiplex 790 model, please contact Tanna Edwards via email or call x6277.

Not on campus on your scheduled Phase II auto-migration date?

No problem! When you return to campus you should have an email sent on your Department's scheduled migration date from tannaedwards@trentu.ca detailing the steps to follow to kick off the now-automated migration. Any issues - send a note to Tanna (scheduling) or to it@trentu.ca (technical issues).
