    Getting ready for 10


    Planning to get 10, but I have a question 1st.
    What's the best way to test my mobo? I mean EVERYTHING; including all Sata, Video, Lan & USB ports.

    I see you have a self built PC, so you could try a dual boot with Windows 10 Technical Preview.
    There are different ways to do that and putting Windows 10 on a separate disk drive and then boot to it would be a good way to test your hardware. Plenty of help on here if you want to try it.

    It's not always so simple. The changes in kernel, especially regarding the way that the OS handles GPU capabilities, may cause some trouble. I say that because I have a machine that runs Windows 7 nicely, but doesn't support Windows 8/8.1 only because the on-board video.

    True... I had a PC before this one and it only could go up to Win7. When I installed Win8/Win8.1 I would get errors over chip set issues. Overall the PC was not being supported by HP anymore and it just couldn't use any newer OS. It came with Vista new and I got it used and I was lucky to get Win7 to work.


    If you have Win8 working more than likely Win10 will work.

    Correct. There were people on eightforums who 8 worked for and 8.1 didn't. Try it and see. Probably if you have a fairly recent system it will work but you can't depend on it.

    You might want to try it again with either windows 8.1 or Windows 10 preview but make sure you are connected to the Internet & choose get updates while installing windows. In Windows 7 make sure the device instillation settings is set to yes.

    The reason Microsoft has newer hardware updates. I had a HP printer that didn't work with windows 7, now it does after a recent windows update patch.


    Didn't Microsoft lower the system requirements for Windows 10?
