    That is an old board.
    Yeah but its still kicking and was basically mothballed for a couple years so it doesn't actually have that much mileage on it.

    Are you using IDE or SATA drives?
    Old drive was an IDE replaced it with a SATA no change.

    Do you have the right chipset drivers or just the wonky microsoft ones?
    Ive tried both.

    Are you sure the controller on your motherboard isn't on it's way out?
    Ive run every test under the sun on the drives and stressed the controller every which way but can't even get a sneeze out of the sub system except under windows 10 where it behaves as I've described.

    Oh and update: Ive been running a surface scan on the drives under the PE build mentioned above loaded off a flash drive for the past hour or so and no signs of any issue at all.. so again it only happens in windows 10 (at least so far I'm going to let it run for a while longer).

    [edit]: scratch that.. after an hour and a half of hard drive abuse it finally froze (a new record) but this time it was a normal freeze with stopped hard drive activity and nothing working but the mouse cursor. Maybe I just overheated it? I completely disconnected the old IDE drive this time and will try again (PE from flash, surface scan of the drive). Ill use Speccy to monitor the temps this time.

    [edit2]: or maybe I just ran out of ram space? Ill have to monitor that too.

    [edit3] So it worked fine for 3 hours.. maybe it really did run out of ram last time. Went back into normal windows 10 and it went wonky within 15 minutes. Guess it wasn't the drive either.

    [EDIT4] Update again - replaced ram and problem persists.
