I have an intel ED77BH or something like that. I tried to upgrade my Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10. It would not let me. I was told that my BIOS would not support it. I upgraded my BIOS and still unable to upgrade windows. I am looking for a new motherboard that is compatible with the one that I have of which I can put into my tower and boot up on Windows 7. Then I will perform my upgrade. What motherboard should I get?

You likely have a DZ77BH board. If you've installed the latest available BIOS, you should be good to go - unless you are running on a 2nd generation processor. 2nd Generation processors - the Core i7-2700, for example - are not supported on/by Windows 10.

So, what processor are you attempting to use?
