    Does Desktop Board DP67BG Support Windows 10?

    RicardoStJames

      Hello,

      I'm currently running Windows 7 and would like to upgrade to Windows 10. Does anyone know if DP67BG supports Windows 10?

          Yes it does!

          I installed Win10 one week ago using this board ;-)

            It is important to understand that,

             

            • Intel DOES NOT provide Windows 10 support for this board.
            • Intel DOES NOT provide Windows 10 support for the internal graphics in 2nd generation (and earlier) Intel Core processors.

             

            Further, while there is a compatibility driver built into Windows 10 that will provide support for the internal graphics, these compatibility drivers provide only basic support, performance is baseline at best (and this is across all of the board's features, not just graphics) and Microsoft likely won't help you if you have problems with it (after switching everyone over to it (and claiming their bonuses for doing so), Microsoft is starting to drop support for older hardware).

             

            Hope this helps,

            ...S

              It should be noted that it's a DP67BG - No onboard graphics.

                That's absolutely true, but the message is important to more than one particular board owner...S
