I even had Windows 10 64 bit on this
umm i ran win7 on p200 with 64mb. whats the news? it was heck slow but all i used was putty for ssh connection lol. sadly i dont have the rig anymore to slam it up again
That is not "old" hardware by any means and Windows 10 would be expected to run like a champ on it which I'm sure it does.
The oldest hardware I've put Win 10 on so far was about 9 years old. My general experience is that the older the hardware the more driver and other conflicts. I had to reinstall on the oldest twice, it locked up so bad I couldn't open the task manager to attempt a fix. Got it sorted eventually and it runs great. (Acer laptop) High end HP laptops with switchable graphics can be tricky, but can be worked around. I've got it running great on Dell laptops with 2.00 gHz dual cores and 2 GB of RAM. Just for fun I'd like to try it on an older P4 machine, I'll bet it will run fine. Clearly 10 wasn't designed for old hardware, but there seems to be a fix for just about any combo if you're willing to dig in and work it out.
Even on this Ivy Bridge it is slow (with oc and everything crancked up)
I have it installed on a Dell Laptop running a T2390 1.86 GHz. Upgraded and installed without issue. It runs about as fast as it can run.
Running pretty well on this.
Downsides - 2 minute startup when fast startup is disabled and a little over an hour to upgrade from a build to another.
Does a Dell D820 qualify as an old PC?
Operating System - Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
CPU - Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T7400 @ 2.16GHz
After the Dell D820, my next attempt will be a Dell XPS Gen5 desktop from 2005 - right now it gives me the "Your CPU does not meet the minimum requirements" reply, but we're not giving up - as old as it is, it's like a vintage Ferrari running Win7 64.
Ha ha, I'm on a D820 right now running XP. I was thinking of 10 on this machine myself, lol. Why not? It's dual core and 2GB RAM, should run fine.
I'm finding Windows 10 enjoyable and pleasant for the most part.
Unfortunately, some things that are easy to find or to do (probably due to years of experience) in Windows 7 and 8/8.1 are not easy to find, assuming they exist at all,...

I have currently a desktop computer running Windows 10 Pro (32bit), I upgraded via GWX from Windows 7 Professional.
I also have a laptop computer running Windows 10 Home (64bit), I upgraded via GWX from Windows 7 Home Premium.
I'm posting on behalf of myself and a handful of others, all have gateways, all had windows 8.1, all recently updated to windows 10. Everything seemed fine with the installation, for about a day. Then when the computers turns on the next day we all...
