Windows 10: Let's run Win10 on really really old hardware
A for effort but doesn't really count. Like spapakons said, a Core2 Quad isn't really old and is a very capable CPU even today.
Old would be something that's 32bit only or first gen 64bit AMD.
I have Win10 on a Dell Optiplex 755, works quite nice. Also have Win10 Insider Preview on a Dell Inspiron 530S.

Here's the Intel CPU information from Intel's website: http://ark.intel.com/products/27453/...Hz-533-MHz-FSB

I haven't had the new PC delivered yet, but am wondering if, as Vista drivers for gaming hardware tended to be OK in Win7, should they and/or Win7 drivers work in Win10?
Thinking of things like Saitek X52, Belkin Nostromo N52..

So, I've been running Windows 10 in a VM since day 1... and have not run It on real hardware.
After my primary drive started flaking out, I went out and bought a new SSD, and decided to just bite the bullet and install Windows 10 as my primary...
I have a Lenovo laptop with 2 ssd installed no cd installed. I go to drive management and I have a cd with a dvd mounted with 3.9 GB showing I can open a command prompt and get a directory listing.
I would like to know where this...
