I purchased a Dell XPS One 2720 All-In-One supplied w/ both a Seagate 4TB SSHD & 16GB Memory + Windows 8.1 Pro (x64) & so I did a freebie Windows 10 Pro (x64) upgrade on it as these are designed w/ a 10 point multi-touch facility & are certified for usage upon any of the following regular domestic or business Windows 8.1 through Windows 10 64-bit architecture operating systems & above!
Works well w/ these following Windows Server operating systems>
Windows Server 2016 Datacenter (x64) (General Release Version 1607 Build 14393.0 & above) - offered by MS Software Assurance on a subscription.
Deploy Windows Server 2016 Datacenter upon this Dell tablet only if you know how to correctly partition this tablet's HDD for UEFI usage w/ the OS & be able to fully setup/use this server!
In order to correctly upgrade / install Windows 10 (x64) – do a search w/in Microsoft Community for "How to install to Win 10 on a Dell XPS 18 (1820) Tablet PC w/out errors” & study my post I’ve done on my Dell XPS 18 (1820) Tablet as it contains useful info as some of it applies to this device!
First-Time Windows 10 Pro (x64) Upgrade – Notice>
After multiple beta-tests w/ various different Windows 8.1 (x64) operating systems to install Windows 10 upon a beta-test PC - please do proceed as follows!
Only a first-time Windows 8.1 Pro (x64) to Windows 10 Pro IP (x64) Upgrade must be done from w/in Windows 8.1 Pro (x64) Desktop to avoid any future clean Windows 10 Pro (x64) installation(s) w/ activation failures! Avoid any first-time Windows 10 Pro (x64) clean installation(s) either w/ or w/out any “C” Drive erase(s)/wipe(s) options due to OS activation failures!
Only once the Dell XPS One 2720 Windows 8.1 Pro (x64) OS is fully installed & activated – either disable/remove or possibly turn-off any BitLocker (TPM) encrypted system "C" Drives that maybe operational & only then proceed w/ Windows 10 Pro (x64) as an upgrade!
Windows 10 Pro November General Release 1511 Build 10586 – Notice>
a) After the Windows 10 Pro General Release 1511 Build 10586 installation completes you'll notice that there's an issue w/ the latest Intel Smart Connect Technology Driver in which the installation of it will be required! b) Avoid installing the latest Intel Rapid Start Technology Driver build due to Win 10 (x64) Shut-Down w/ hanging issues in which if you proceed w/ the installation of it – the Windows 10 Shut-Down always hangs w/out ever fully shutting down so it’s best to avoid any RST Driver install(s) until Intel fixes it!

the good & the bad w/ Wireless KM713 combo Kits
i. On the good side w/ KM713 Combo Kits no unification software is required for usage! ii. On the bad side w/ KM713 Combo Kits - if either the KM713 keyboard / mouse fails to correctly function – then the entire Wireless KM713 Combo Kit together w/ its dongle will have to be trashed & fully replaced as any alternative KM713 Keyboard or mouse fails if used w/ the original KM713 dongle – so therefore all three KM713 combo parts will be required to be replaced!
