We are upgrading Monash Health Desktop/Laptop PCs from Microsoft Windows 7 to the new Windows 10 desktop environment.

 

Preparation works have commenced. You may notice over the next few months Monash Health IT Staff and Contractors (who will be wearing a Monash ID Card) walking around your department noting down asset numbers for either replacements/upgrades.

 

Once pre-implementation works have been completed, the expectation is that we will begin the actual replacement and upgrade of devices for the organisation from the February 2020, continuing until mid-November 2020.

 

You will be contacted prior to your area being scheduled to ensure your department is prepared and to organise a time which will minimise disruption to your area. Please regularly check this site for updates.

What you need to know

What will the upgrade/replacement process involve?

This will involve the upgrade of existing Monash Health Desktop/Laptop devices currently running Microsoft Windows 7 with the new Windows 10 operating environment, or provide a replacement device if the lease is scheduled to expire over the next 12 months. Once the upgrade has been completed all existing applications on your device will be included in the new install.

 

Please note that once your old computer has been upgraded or replaced it is not possible to recover any information from the device, therefore it is critical that you ensure that you have saved all important information prior to replacement. For more information please refer to the Preparation Information flyer (below).

Will I lose my data as part of the replacement?

Yes, all data currently on your device will be erased! So – Save all files to H:\ and G:\ Drive. 

 

It is vital that you save your data and do not store anything on local computers (C:\ Drive) 

 

You should be storing all your important work-related files on either your:

 

    • H:\ drive (personal to you) or,
    • G:\ drive (department/ward shared folder)

 

Please make sure you follow the “Preparation Information” document (below)  and ensure you have saved all important information you wish to keep prior to replacement or upgrade of your to one of the locations suggested above. Please pay particular attention to files that may be stored on your “Desktop”, and “My Documents” folder.

How do I tell if my device is to be replaced/upgraded?

When you turn your computer/laptop on, if it reads “Windows 7 Professional” at the bottom of your login screen then your computer will be replaced or upgraded.

Do I need to do anything to organise our computers/laptops to be replaced/upgraded for my area?

No. You will be contacted by the Windows10 Project team to organise a date and time for the replacement to occur. The Project team will also provide you with a briefing on the process and what is required closer to the nominated replacement date.

Who do I contact for more information?

Contact information for Project Managers can be found below.
