No, Windows 10 is not supported on this desktop board.

Now, that does not mean that W10 will not run. It will.

Provide your complete processor model number for more information. And, if you have an add-on graphics card, you are better off than you might expect.

That is correct - there are no Windows 10 drivers because WINDOWS 10 IS NOT SUPPORTED.

Any drivers available are part of the Windows 10 install. Just Install Windows 10, noting that there is NO SUPPORT.

Then, go to nvidia.com and get the windows 10 driver for your graphics card.

You should have little trouble.

No, you don't need that CD. All you need it the Windows 10 install media (DVD or USB key).

You are not paying attention! You were just told that you don't need any additional drivers.

Windows 10 has all the drivers that you need built in. Just install it.

That is correct; there is no support, but Microsoft provides compatibility drivers to support legacy boards such as this. They don't yield optimal performance, but they do work for the most part. You do need to understand, however, that, without support, if something doesn't work, you have no recourse.

Correct. All necessary drivers are either already on the Windows 10 installation media or will be downloaded from Windows Update as part of the Windows 10 installation process.

Once the Windows 10 installation process has completed, a quick check in Device Manager will tell you if any drivers are missing.

ok if found all drivers are there,then there are no problem..but if found any one missing then what can i do?

Well, if that happens, there is nothing you can do about it (there simply are no alternative drivers). I wouldn't worry about this, however, it shouldn't happen. The WW board does not have any fancy hardware that might require additional drivers.

One additional recommendation: After Windows 10 is installed, download the very latest GeForce driver package for Windows 10 from NVIDIA's web site and install it.

No, don't use the GeForce CD. It has very old drivers on it. Download the latest from the web and install it.

For systems that are this old and have no direct Windows 10 support, yes, it is the same.

Look, you are wasting my time as well as yours. Go install Windows 10 and get it over with.
