Hello CMS,


Thank you for contacting Intel Customer Support.

 

OS compatibility (or supported operating systems) is not defined by the Intel® Xeon® processor or a server's chipset, but it is dependent on the operating systems supported by the server motherboard or system. The motherboard or system manufacturer will validate certain operating systems with the motherboard or system and provide drivers for the supported operating systems.


You can find more information here:

Can you also please share the model of your Intel(R) Xeon processor?


If you have anymore questions please contact us back.

It is a box without an OS and I wanted to use it as a desktop due to the price and great reviews.
 
Will this motherboard work with Windows 10 Home edition?

Hello CMS,


Thank you for the additional information.

 

Upon checking the list of supported operating systems for the PowerEdge T40 Tower Server, Windows 10 Home is not listed as a valid operating system.


You can find more detailed information here:

For more information we do recommend contacting Dell technical support.
