    I have a tablet PC that I would really like to use Win10 on -- but is has the INFAMOUS Intel 915GM chipset and, as many of you already know, that requires XPDM drivers -- which do not work under Win8 or Win10.
    I have an old LG laptop from 2006 with the exact same chipset. My CPU is the Pentium M 740 (1.73GHz).

    I've also been trying to get W10 updated on this laptop. Everything works perfectly up till build 1709. Updating from 1709 to 1803 or 1809 has been impossible.

    I've got another thread on this mystery here: W10 update error on (really) old laptop: SAFE_OS phase

    not only that, but it seems that the 1809 release of win10 has severe problems running on intel 915gm chipsets (and the Intel Pentium M CPUs used on the 915gm) as someone in this MSFN forum thread could not run neither the 1803 nor the 1809 release on his MSI 915GM Speedster FA4 machine. newer win10 versions will either freeze/hang or crash with BSODs using Intel 915gm hardware.

    I'm getting the EXACT same issue as reported by "Petr" on that MSFN forum!

    So it is a good idea to keep an old Windows 10 build ISO (pre-1803) handy. We should do a full disk backup (or clone to a spare disk) before trying to upgrade to any new build. If it works, we keep that ISO too. If it doesn't we restore our old installation from the backup. In worst case we use the older ISO to do a clean installation of Windows 10 32-bit.

    Agreed. Partition backup is a lifesaver.
