Mb having win 10 compat plus specific features.

Postby Javabiker » Sun Oct 18, 2015 12:27 pm

My current asus mb is not compatible with win 10. So, can anyone recommend a board from any source that conforms to these specs:
AMD Phenom II processor.
DDR3 memory, 4 slots.
ATX form factor.
Average no of usb2 and 3 ports.
Average pci slots.
Average sata ports.
DVI output on back panel.
Integrated video-no need for a pci video card.
Windows 10 compatible.

I have searched for hours with no success.
My current board conforms to all these criteria, except win 10 compat.
Help much appreciated.

Welcome to Motherboards.org.
What specifically is not compatible? If the motherboard meets the mandate of UEFI v2.3.1 standards, there should be no problems.
There is a character string in the bottom left of the first video image. That is the positive ID of the system, with the BIOS date. Copy that string and post here. If you cannot pause that screen, set "halt on errors" to 'no keyboard'.
Would help if you post more details of your system.. motherboard model, CPU speed, memory brand and model, hard drive size.
There are a good number of Asus and other motherboards that have no issue with the secure boot process of Win 10. But some do.
A lot of third-party software is not compatible to Windows 10, or even back to Windows 7. That could be an issue.
F@H.. to solve mankind's maladies.. in our lifetimes!
