a Core 2 should run 10 just fine. ALL core 2 have NX which is the only thing 10 requires
Windows 7 and 8 (.0) don't require PAE and NX. Check the BIOS. NX may have different names.
I will avoid derailing this thread
We call these the vocal minority, people are quick to post with complaints and problems, but we are much much less likely to post just to say everything went well.
If you really want the scale how many forum users have posted complaint threads, then you look at the fact that Windows 10 has already been installed on over 14 million devices worldwide, and that shows the scale of the complaints.
I can't say I am happy with Windows 10 yet, but (knock on wood) so far it seems as stable as Windows 7 Ultimate was. Did have a few issues when first installed, like Windows Update was giving me an error... but a quick Google of the error got it fixed. Aside from that I'm pretty content with it thus far and my only complaints are...
1. We need OblyTile to work with Windows 10 and too be honest, a program like that should actually come default.
2. MS needs to fix Aero and have an option to work with borders and title bars. Also an option to change colors to the same areas without having to install a custom theme to do it.
3. Not sure what the deal is, but on every boot I get a 30 seconds or so black screen before login window... that needs fixing.
I'm new here, but I for one am liking windows 10 and not going back to 8. Thank you Microsoft!!
