It will likely run Wndows 10 just fine. However, the board and processor are not supported on Windows 10.

Windows 10 will install and run. Almost all necessary drivers are included inbox. The issue is that Intel provides no Windows 10 drivers for the processor's graphics engine, so you are stuck with Microsoft's compatibility driver, which is not the best from a performance or capability standpoint (OpenGL is way, way down-rev., for example). Your best bet is to find the newest possible add-in graphics card that the board's BIOS will still support. I used an NVIDIA GEForce GTX 750 Ti in my DP55KG.
