It depends on how old the computer is.

Due to the extensive hardware and firmware changes in Windows 8 or 8.1 requirements, it is not a recommended update for all computers.

Having that said, the rule of thumb is that the newer the computer is, the more likely HP is to support it with Windows 8 or Windows 8.1.
