Windows 10 on old pc not working

A old client of mine gave me her old pc to work on. She gave it to me because it wouldn't boot. First thing I did was remove the memory and cleaned it off and put it back. Pc booted right up without issue. Currently has 4gb and she gave me the ok to order 8gb. Also wanted to upgrade to a ssd for better performance. I'm using the old memory for now and I put in a Scandisk 120gb ssd and wanted to load windows 10 on it. I've tried boot off usb and disc and its a no go. I get the black screen with the blue windows logo in the middle. I reset the bios back to default and I still cant get windows 10 to install.

GA-P35-DS3R V1.0
E5800 3.2ghz
4GB DDR2-6400 4x1GB
Has windows 7 Pro currently on it.

Re: Windows 10 on old pc not working

Board is from 2007-08 with latest bios. I can't even get to the point where it ask's about the hard drive. Only thing I can think of is windows 10 doesn't like the video card when it tries to detect hardware.

I'm surprised it has a sata connection, where did you get the .iso of windows 10? If its from the media creation tool its in GPT, I don't think that MB will recognize GPT...I don't know its a guess?

Re: Windows 10 on old pc not working

It has 8 3Gb/s SATA and IDE ports. I downloaded the ISO online that has the latest updates added to it. I tried the ISO on usb and dvd and failed to install. I used the latest Windows 7 iso on a usb flash drive and it installed fine.

Re: Windows 10 on old pc not working

Make sure you set the sata to AHCI in the bios also!

Re: Windows 10 on old pc not working

Tried it again with the iso from that link and its a no go. With AHCI on and off. I've read online and others do have Windows 10 installed with this board. I'll just have to put Windows 7 on it and call it a day.

Re: Windows 10 on old pc not working

Windows 7 installed without issue on the ssd with this board. I even removed the hard drives and still the same issue. Only part I can't change out is the video card. I have a feeling that is the issue.

Did you use NTFS or FAT? I' recommend NTFS.

Re: Windows 10 on old pc not working

NTFS, I can't remember the last time I did Fat on a drive. I try to boot off windows 10 usb flash drive or dvd and I just get the black screen. I can't get to the option to format the drive or anything.
