    I can't even get to the screen you attached.. I can download the 32 bit tool and as soon as run it, I get a message that my OS bit level doesn't match the bit level of the download tool, please choose the correct download tool for your OS..
    Then download and run the 64bit Media Creation Tool if you have 64bit Windows installed.

    My mistake, didn't realize you could get the 32 ISO with the 64 creation tool.

    Nope, tried everything and gave up. I'm currently running Win7 x64 on my old rig.
    When updating to Win10 the installation stops with error message that my CPU lacks some instructions required, AMD did'nt add those until later. That's why I tried a clean install 'cause I read somewhere it should be possible anyway. But then it wouldn't boot from DVD or USB. And no-one seems to be able to help. I can clean install Win10 x86 but it behaves very strange and definately not robust so I decided to stay on Win7. Running Win10 x64 on a new rig without probs.

    I have an old Dell Dimension 9150/XPS 400 machine with Pentium D 830. Able to boot from DVD and USB but failed to install Windows 10 (x64) but Windows 10 (x86) works fine. The Pentium D missed some features required for the Windows 10 x64 version.

    I used this machine to check out bad hard drive or data recovery or hardware testing only. So I don't care it is a 32 bit version.

    so i tried the 32 bit install disc, which booted successfully, even recognizes my JBOD drive.

    i started the install process, looks like it was able to copy the files to the drive, but then BSODs after reboot with whea_uncorrectable_error, which i guess can be anything from CPU voltage issues to driver conflicts.

    @DoItJust, did you ever run into this error when you installed the 32 bit version of Windows 10? good catch with 32 vs 64 bit disc as well.

    Exactly the same problem I had, at first only when I was not connected to the network, and later randomly. That's when I started to think the board was to old (even though MS wanted to upgrade to Win10 and started downloading) and eventually gave up. As I said I'm now running Win7 x64 on that rig and I've hidden KB3035583 in Windows Update.

    So did you upgrade from a previous version to Windows 10? Ie, not a hard drive wipe and clean install.

    Both
    Started with an upgrade from activated Win7 x86 -> Win10 = OK. Wiped and cleaned installed Win10 x86 = Ok to begin with and later on "whea_uncorrectable_error" more and more frequent.
    Cleaned again installed Win7 x64, activated and tried upgrade = not possible due to processor limitations.
    Cleaned again, tried install of Win10 x64 from USB/DVD = no boot.
    Gave up, ate dinner
    Cleaned again, installed Win7 x64, activated
    ...
    ...
    I still have the images saved somewhere ...
