    ASUS P6T Delux V2 Motherboard hang with recent Windows 10 updates


    I have a computer that works perfectly for all my purposes but sadly I have to disable VT-d (a workaround I have seen mentioned in many places on the Internet an also worked on my machine) to make it work with Windows 10 since I few upgrades back since it is based on ASUS P6T Delux V2.

    When VT-d is enable the machine fails to even boot the latest upgrades of Windows 10. Like so many other owners of this motherboard I have tried removing/replacing all non essential peripherals etc with no solution - it simply seems to be something with the motherboard that Microsoft no longer support / handles correctly...

    Since I am a developer I would however like to run containers and other things that require VT-d

    If anybody in this forum has had any luck with this motherboard please let me know how you have made it work!

    Otherwise how can you report this kind of buggs in Windows and is there even any point in doing so (when upgrades fail I assume Windows collect info about Motherboard/chipset etc so no reporting should be necessary) or is Microsoft happy to give the hardware manufacturers a hand forcing us to replace our computers regularly (no matter if it is needed or not)?

    I wonder whether Microsoft would simply blame Asus. The motherboards's last BIOS update was in 2011.

    that old P6T Deluxe V2 board from ASUS supports only 1st gen intel core i7 cpus (mainly Gulftown & certain Bloomfield series) and was definitely not tested for Win10 compatibility (sure blame Asus for that since they also did not release any win10 drivers for that board)

    running recent versions of Win10 (such as the 1809 and 1903 versions) will be either hit or miss [meaning it either works or it does not work]
    try running "older" win10 versions like Win10 ltsb 2015 (v1507) or ltsb 2016 (v1607) to see if those versions work on that board with Intel VT-d turned on

    Just to let you know:
    One of my systems is a 10 years old Intel i7-965, running on a "ASUS P6T Deluxe V2"-Motherboard with a 64-bit Windows 10 Pro Build 20H2. (Also with disabled VT-d).
    It still runs fine for Thunderbird Mails and do some internet researches with newest Google Chrome v94.
    Unfortunately, it will not let me update to Windows 11 because of the missing TPM-Modul.
    The
    "ASUS P6T Deluxe V2" Motherboard has a 20-1-pin-TPM-Connector and the manual says: "This motherboard supports the Trusted Platform Module (TPM)..." but some lines later also "The TPM module is purchased separately".
    I have no idea If I can still purchase such a module and if it really works for Windows 11.
    Is there any experience with it?

    No CPU that works in that motherboard will be on the supported CPU list for Windows 11. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...tel-processors With a few exceptions, the CPU must be Generation 8 or later. (The CPUs are Generation 1.)

    It may be possible to install Win11 on such a system. Whether you could do that without a TPM, I have no idea. I'd wait a bit before buying a TPM, if it is even possible.

    @bobkn: Thank you for the hint with the not supported CPU generation.
    I'm not in a hurry and will wait for upcoming solutions. Including one with the word "bypassing" in it
