    How come I can use X3360 for Windows 10, but not Q9550S?


      How come I can easily boot up WIndows 10 x64 on my computer with X3360 (Yorkfield) on my DP35DP motherboard.

      But if I try to boot up on Q9550S (same generation CPU), computer hangs out on booting up?


      I've seen this post: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 not supported by Windows 10 ?

      But that's just strange that one of the same processor from a family can't be booted up on WIndows 10.


      Not to mention, that on other computer I'm running X3230 on WIndows 10 & everything works OK.

          Hello KLiKzg,
          Thank you for contacting the Intel community.
          Please bear in mind that neither of these processors support Windows® 10, basically there are no drivers available and your system might work fine or not, it is hard to tell what will be the behavior, this also depends on your whole system configuration, it does not depends only on the processor, it depend on your motherboard, BIOS, microcode, RAM etc, but since this is not a supported operating system with these processors any misbehavior can occur sooner or later because this is a compatibility issue.
          Best regards,
          Ivan U.
