Change from Windows 7 to 10

In January 2020, Microsoft will stop supporting the Windows 7 operating system. On May 20, 2019, JADE-HS employees were informed by the HRZ via email. All central facilities will be promptly converted to the new operating system by the HRZ.

The departments can also be supported by the HRZ during the conversion as long as the above-mentioned conditions of use for the PC service are met. In this case, make a request to PC technology:


  • Personally in the room ELS-W202
  • By phone
  • Ticket system
    • Open a ticket in our helpdesk and select the subject area “PC technology”.


  • At the place of study in Oldenburg, the PC service for the departments is also provided by the department itself, please contact Wilfried Ramke.


When it arrives in PC technology, the device is placed on a list and is usually processed in this order. We can usually process up to three PCs at the same time because the space is limited. The conversion of the PCs to Microsoft Windows 10 will take some time, depending on the current utilization of the PC technology, which cannot be calculated in advance.
