    Windows 7

    Let's run Windows 10 Final under old hardware Pentium 4 Socket 478

    hello there everyone !!!
    This subject is opened only becouse of couriosity. There have been simillar one thread under other section:
    Let's run Win10 on really really old hardware - Page 6 - Windows 10 Forums
    But it looks dead for now. Moreover it was connected to Insider version of system which is useless now.
    I want to bring newest Windows into my machine in work which got Windows 7 Pro license and MSI MS-7008 motherboard and Pentium 4 478 Socket.
    I've found some info that Pentium 4 SL8JX with 478 Socket got EMT64 and NX Bit:
    But it's very hard to find (and possibily even processor alone won't give possibility to run w10).
    Also there exist NX Bypass for W8:
    Windows 8 CPU Feature Patch (Bypass Windows 8 CPU feature checks))
    which worked with Insider Edition of W10, now it doesn't. There is no possibility to open WIM file.
    Any ideas ?? Maybe someone did it here ??

    I'm interested on further posts on this thread... it's weird to see MS didn't pay enough attention to 2000's Pentium 4... they're really good !!!
