    Windows 10 IoT

    I just tried my thumb drive on my other desktop PC and it did the same thing, black screen with a flashing cursor. These two PC's have almost identical hardware. I started another thread on this and will post there instead of cluttering up this one. https://www.tenforums.com/installatio...g-install.html

    Does closing modern apps actually close them or do you have to go into task manager to shut them down still?

    Ugh, never tried that yet, I forgot that was happening inW8.
    Edit,
    just tried with store, waeather and Mail and it doesn't leave any traces after closing with "X". Haven't tried with other apps, I don't have any "aftermarket" ones.

    I think it closes them. At least they aren't in the taskbar after I close them.

    Alrighty
    I set this up on a spare core 2 duo machine with 4gb ram. I really like how fast and responsive it is. this machine had vista on it originally. I like it a lot.

    **EDIT**
    I tried to upload screenshots from this install, however they would not upload. I will try from my daily grinder and see if it is an IE11 issue or Win10.
    **Edit 2**
    Seems to be an issue on that machine only. I will play with it some more and see what's going on.

    Anyone try to install Win 10 on an old XP machine ?

    I have a HP Compaq nc6220 with 2 GB mem. and have to replace the OS anyway.

    I tried 2 gb in a VM but it was sluggish and stuttering. What Proc is it running?

    I think it's;
    Intel Pentium M processor 750* (1.86-GHz, 533-MHz FSB, 2-MB L2 cache) would have to fire it up to be positive.

    I won't run it in a VM, straight install.

    The machine above is a straight install. Note at rest it is using 1gb memory.

    That is a single core Dothan chip in your xp laptop. I have a feeling it might be pretty slow. The real issue is the drivers though. if there are no 7 or 8.1 drivers for that unit I have a feeling it might not be stable. If it something you want to keep and use I would likely try Linux mint 9 on it. I don't think that hardware would like 10.

    also note that the Dothan chip is a 32 bit only.
