    Video Drivers

    Want to install Windows 10 Preview on a Dell Inspiron m5030. When the installer reboots the install, after a shot time screen goes Black.As if there are no Video drivers. I use to run Windows 7 on it no problem. I have been using Linux
    on it. Does any body know if 9926 has drivers for m5030 ?

    I use to run Windows 7 on it no problem.
    Same here -- with an old XP-era PC. But Win8 dropped XPDM video driver support and that is the same with Win10. So, if you're using an xp-era driver in Win7, you will not be able to use it in Win10
