Windows 10: Let's run Win10 on really really old hardware
This is an interesting patch, didn't go through all the process but it seems it could be a solution.
[Tutorial] Install Windows 8.1 without SSE2/NX Support - YouTube
Soo... Please read carefully what i've wrote. Commands like bcdedit nx always ON or simmillar ones, won't give anything... it is only good if motherboard and processor are capable of NX bit but BIOS isn't (even it this situtation still it doesn't work always).
About youtube tutorial you posted... I've answered for that in my last post. THERE IS NO POSSIBILTY TO OPEN FINAL VERSION (doen't matter witch build) OF WINDOWS 10 IMAGE/CD WIM FILE, it has been rebuilded to be not openable. therefore the step with ImageX won't work and will stop you in this moment.
For now there is no possibility to rexctract it.
Somwhere bettween all of this i also get code 5 while tring to install windows (even 7, 8 and 10) heres solution -> UNAWAVE - Code 5 Error whilst booting Windows 7 DVD
In the end i've replaced motherboard with cpu ~ 15$ for good motherboard and cpu + cooler.
I have it running on an old T2390 1.8 GHz Dell Laptop. Don't use it that much but there have been no issues, so far.
What soc is it ? Which procesor? And is it technical/insider preview or final release?
I have installed Win 10 Pro and running insider version on this desktop, no issues and quite fast as well, CPU dated 2006.
Thanks jach0o for the info that saved me precious time. Unfortunately I don't think I can replace the motherboard on that laptop.
For the others, run coreinfo and check if nx is enabled.
Windows 10 compatible AGP cards
Hi, I read this post with interest because my pc is getting on a bit now. I have upgraded from win 7 pro 32 bit and everything is good, infact I would say performance is improved. However, I have poor graphics performance and would like to get a compatible AGP card as these are cheap now. Also, I have a faulty Nvidia GeForce 7800GS+ 512MB card, if I can get another of these all would be good but is it compatible?
The people who have upgraded earlier in this thread say all is ok Can you tell me if you used a AGP card and its specs?
CPU: AMD Athlon FX53 (940) 2.4Ghz
MB: MSI K8 dual socket 940, AGP only.
VGA: AGP - Nvidia FX5950 AGP with 96.85 winvista drivers from NVidia website. Win 10 just installed the standard display adapter until I installed the new drivers.
I am willing to try some suggestions.
Here's mine if this helps
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...
