    windows 10 on an Eee PC???


    I am trying to put Windows 10 onto an Eee PC. The first attempt had an issue which was looking for some drivers. I am trying to redownload 10 as the first time the download got interrupted as the computer turned off due to battery issues. I am sitting close to the wireless router/modem so the download of 10 will hopefully be faster.
    What do I have to keep in mind for the installation? I am mainly trying to figure out how to have a safe computer and to watch my Microsoft Movies and TV stuff.

    Win10 Home and Pro, Win10 Insider Preview, Win7 Home, Linux Mint

    I tried it a couple of years ago and ended up tossing it out. It appeared not to have sufficient power to run Win10 even though it met the minimum requirements for installing.

    I think the issue is that I assumed it was finished but it was not. That is creating a bootable usb. I am waiting now to see if it will work after waiting to make sure it is finished.

    The way I figure it is that as long as you have a backup of whatever you need to keep, trying out something on a computer only takes your time. If it doesn't work, just restore your backup of what did work :-)

    No Windows 10 support from Asus.
    Windows 7-32 bit drivers is all they list
    Looks like it's Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator Driver. Search Intel website.

    I am looking up intel graphics media accelerator driver but having difficulty getting it accepted. I can sort of install it but it will not be implemented as I am not using the "right" version of windows. I use windows 10 because I do not want to use xp and I have a license for 10. Xp is too dangerous for me to use as it is no longer supported.
    I tried ubuntu once on the machine but I could not get the live USB to work. Now due to my inability to label my USB drives I am not sure which one has the live ubuntu or where it is.
