When I check for Windows 10 updates, a message states "Feature update to Windows 10, version 1903, The next version of Windows is available with new features and security improvements. When you're ready for the update, select Download and install now".

I have a HP Envy 360 with AMD processor. Exactly what do I need such that my computer will be "ready for the update"? Is it additional hardware or drivers, and if so, how do I get them, do I have to pay for them, etc.? Microsoft's verbiage is too cryptic to be of any use.

same message I got o one of my laptops as well. Last month I was told by WU that I wasn't ready and now I am even though I have not changed a bit on that machine, see here:

Of course if you see the "Download and install now " in the update section, you can click on it and it will install the latest version 1903.

Of course I can't guarantee it, but I think you're save to move up to 1903. Worst case scenario is you could revert it back if you had to. I got the same message with my 10 year old netbook and 9 year old laptop. I manually upgraded both of them with no issues. Again, that doesn't mean you won't have issues. My guess is they may think there will possibly be a driver incompatibility or something. My guess is you'd be fine.

Thanks for all the replies, but my attempt to download Windows 10 version 1903 was again unsuccessful. After going to Settings, Check for Updates and clicking the link to download Version 1903 (as described in my initial post), the computer spent about 40 minutes "Getting Things Ready" after which it displayed "Downloading", gradually rising to 99%, after which nothing happened (well, at least for 2 hours). Surely there's a way to get Version 1903 downloaded. I just need info on what additional hardware and/or drivers I need to get installed to make the download/install of this update work properly.
