maybe i should explain, when running the microsoft tool it says my system is ready for win 10 but when i called intel phone support they said chipset p43 does not support win 10 so was wondering if anyone else with this board has any trouble upgrading to win 10.
This is correct; Intel does not support Windows 10 drivers for processors and chipsets this old. That said, the generic drivers from Microsoft should work, but they likely will not yield optimal performance...
That is correct, your motherboard does not support Windows® 10, see here for more information http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/desktop-boards/000005640.html Supported Operating Systems for Intel® Desktop Boards.

I will presume that richardsonkane75 is referring to a search on the Intel Download Center. You will not find any Windows 10 drivers on the search results page for the DP43TF board. In addition, the Intel Drivers Update Utility will not provide any Windows 10 drivers for this board (it's simply too old).
johnman58j, your options at this point are to (a) stick with just the compatibility drivers that come with Windows 10, or (b) scour the Intel Download Center for those compatible Windows 10 drivers that support your board. Some of the standard (LAN, Chipset, etc.) driver packages might still support your board, though there are no guarantees...
thanks amy, when i do upgrade i'm sure i will be staying with an intel board and cpu so i will most likely return to this forum for suggestions on which board to get ,, thanks to everyone again.
well, just for the weck of it i went on newegg to look at intel motherboards and couldn't find any. then i found an article saying that between 2013 and 2016 intel was phasing out their motherboards, so i guess i'll need to know which brand [asus,msi,asrock,ect ] is the most reliable.thanks
My personal ranking for the manufacturers is (1) Asus, (2) Gigabyte/MSI and (3) Others (including Asrock). I perceive Gigabyte and MSI to be about equal in quality, hence why I ranked them together. They are not that far behind Asus. In fact, in recent builds for my kids, I used a Gigabyte board for one and an MSI board for the other. Why? Price (they were on sale)...
P.S. I do not work for Intel (well, not any more; I am retired) and my opinions are my own. If manufacturers would like to send me boards, I will try them out and perhaps adjust my opinions...
