Caution: Do not change the configuration for systems with these devices to the new version.


Explanation:
I would use either Caution or Note in order to make it clear to the end user. The reason for using just configuration consists in the fact that setup (especially in Software) refers quite often to the initial installation of the software, while the configuration for the particular use of the software is done at a later stage to customize for specific use and circumstances.
