Hi Stalker,

What isn't supported by Windows 10? Is it USB ports? You might be better served upgrading your motherboard on ebay than buying Windows 7 - for obsolescence issues. If it is lack of a specific driver (USB, Video), another option would be to buy a plug in card for whatever does not have a driver.

For the record, I haven't re-installed BFV in many many years. I just copied the folder over from one install to another (Vista->Windows 7->Windows 10) - all 64bit. Once you have a stable installed version, keep a copy of it so you never have to re-install.

Usually older mainboards work fine with newer Operating Systems. Just the other way around can cause some problems of finding suitable drivers.
If you want to give us a bit more system specs. we might be able to help you :)

Hi Stalker - it sounds like you may not have tried to install Win10 yet. If you have a copy and have not tried to install it on your existing motherboard, you may want to try. As Rambo said, it may very well work.

Hey Stalker,

As with what the other good people said, 9 times out of time Windows 10 will work on many older boards.

The manufacturer may say "Supports Win 7" or "Supports up to Win 7" but in truth Windows 10 should work just fine. My board is certified for windows 7 yet runs windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10 just fine. :)

Once windows 10 is installed, windows update should automatically download and install your Motherboard's drivers. If it does not you can also manually install them by going to your Mobo's manufacturer site and downloading the software yourself.

As for BFV, it runs just fine on Windows 10. ;) A lot of us are a testament to that fact!



Feel free to contact me if you need help. :)

Checkout the generic chipset drivers opposed to the MB system drivers.

example: find out the chipset your MB is based on and AMD or Intel will have those drivers more than likely on their website. If not install Windows 7 drivers for Win10 drivers. Just make sure if they were 32Bit before and you are going to use 64 bit going forward, need to be 32/32 or 64bit/64 bit. I run my old printers on Win10 with Win7 drivers / and a bunch of other stuff, Check forums for your MB and you find many drivers that will work. I converted 2 laptops I had with no drivers to Win10 from Win7. You got to dig and experiment a little. But Win 7 & 8 drivers will work for WIn10 drivers in many cases. Check Intel's website for old generic chipset drivers and you can find sound drivers from the manufacture of your sound chips website too.



It takes some time, but typically and unless your MB was designed for WinXP there's a driver out there that will suffice for WIn10.
