  1. Only Microsoft knows the answer. Besides, Intel does not fix Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities for Core Duo processors.
  2. Ampere based Quadro GPUs support 1607, but it seems that drivers for Ampere based GeForce GPUs will not be installed on 1709 or earlier. FurMark test result of 456.38: https://gpuscore.top/furmark/show.php?id=159930
  3. It seems that you are trying to use gpedit.msc in Windows 10 Home. Users may stop Windows Update, but configuring access to Microsoft Store in Windows 10 Home is a problem.
  4. SuperKoko built Python 2.6.8 and Python 2.7.3 for old Windows. https://msfn.org/board/topic/162317-python-27-for-windows-95/
  5. I think there is nothing I can do about it. 1607 does not support extension INF. The old OS ignores HdBusExt.inf during installation of graphics driver, so I can't install Intel SST on 1607. Maybe it is possible to install SST by INF modification, but 1607 does not support Wake On Voice.
  6. The three things users need to know before installing old versions of Windows 10 on NUC 10: 1. DSDT does not exist, so I can not install 32-bit Windows on NUC10i3FNH. 2. If I enable Thunderbolt in BIOS, Windows 10 x64 1607 or earlier gets stuck on black screen (UEFI) or messed up screen (LEGACY) when booting. 3. The error message "Windows could not update the computer's boot configuration. Installation cannot proceed." appears if I install Windows 10 x64 1703 or earlier on a GPT partitioned drive by UEFI booting with modern standby enabled. And I found another error message "Fai
  7. I have no plan to release modified NVIDIA driver. If you are using a Turing GeForce graphics card on Windows 10, you can use version 1809 and later for enhanced gaming experience, but it is better to stay away from latest feature update. On version 1607, HEVC B-frames is available, and Mesh Shaders for OpenGL and Vulkan are available, too. I guess NGX may work because official driver is available. Anyone can make the modified NVIDIA driver by spending a month learning debugging and using IDA 7.0. But many features are unavailable due to old Windows version, and it is a big problem.
  8. Did you try connecting the mouse without the combo cable?
  9. I didn't know that Device Manager ignores NvProfileUpdaterPlugin.dll during installation. NvProfileUpdaterPlugin.dll is required since R435. Without the file, NVIDIA Control Panel keeps showing access denied error when I try to apply Adaptive-Sync or 3D settings. After reinstalling Windows, I solved this problem by copying the file to Session folder. Now Adaptive-Sync works on D3D 11 windowed mode, and VLC media player can use D3D 11 video output in full screen.
  10. Resident Evil 3 demo supports Windows 10 HDR instead of NVAPI HDR. When I enable full screen HDR in game, the screen goes black and the input response becomes very slow. If I switch to other program, the problem temporarily disappears because the game leaves full screen HDR mode. Anyway, adaptive sync works in full screen mode and borderless windowed mode under DirectX 12, and the graphics are nice. VLC media player also has black screen issue because it only supports Windows 10 HDR. This is one limitation of 1607, so updating driver to 445.75 didn't help. FurMa
  11. Microsoft made a list of Windows Processor Requirements, and AMD Ryzen processors are supported since 1703. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/windows-processor-requirements But it seems that 1607 works with Ryzen 5 3600. https://community.amd.com/thread/246190
  12. It seems that users of Dell desktop computers have similar problem. using incompatible graphics card from different Dell PC http://nice.kaze.com/inspiron_3250.html unknown reason https://www.dell.com/community/Inspiron-Desktops/Inspiron-530s-BIOS-setup-F2-fails-to-load/td-p/6184376 I guess there is something wrong with the BIOS used by Dell Inspiron 7720. And it's weird that restarting from Windows didn't fix the issue. Off-topic, Windows 10 UEFI patch results in boot issue. https://www.dell.com/community/Inspiron/Suspected-KB4524244-Boot-issue-on-Inspiron-15-35
  13. Nvidia removed SHA1 from 442.50, so I think users of Windows 7 will need the update that adds SHA2 code signing support for OS.
  14. Nvidia released GeForce driver 442.50 for Windows 7/ 8.1/ 10. https://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/442.50/442.50-win10-win8-win7-release-notes.pdf NVIDIA Quadro driver support for selected Windows operating systems ended on January 14, 2020. I can't find R390 U13, R418 U8, R430 U9 for Windows 7/ 8.1. https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4913/~/end-of-nvidia-quadro-driver-support-for-select-windows-operating-systems
  15. NVIDIA provides GeForce driver 442.19 for Windows 8.1. DirectX 11 compatible driver is released for Windows 7/ 8.1, and DirectX 12 compatible driver is released for Windows 10 and later. So users of Windows 8.1 are also affected by NVIDIA's decision. But NVIDIA didn't mention support status of earlier driver branches.
