  1. Starting from R495, NVIDIA no longer provides non-DCH drivers. The minimum version supported is 1607.
  2. The list of recently installed drivers. BIOS Update [FNCML357] (FN0053) Intel RST driver ( Intel Graphics DCH drivers ( Intel Network Adapter driver for Windows 10 (25.2) Intel Wireless Bluetooth driver for Windows 10 (22.70.2) Windows 10 Wi-Fi drivers for Intel Wireless Adapters (22.70.0) ITE Tech CIR driver for Windows 10 64-bit for NUC 10 Kit ( USB Type C Power Delivery Controller for Windows 10 64-bit for NUC ( Genesys Card Reader Driver for Windows 10 64-bit for NUC 10 Kit ( Realtek HDA driver for Windows 10 64-bit for NUC Kit (6.0.8950.1) Thunderbolt 3 Legacy driver for Windows 10 for NUC ( Intel SGX driver for Windows ( Chipset INF Utility (10.1.18383.8213) Intel Serial IO driver for NUC (30.100.1947.3) Intel Management Engine Interface driver (1937.14.0.1350, for DELL Vostro 3590) Intel RST driver 18.x requires version 1703 or later, so I modified the INF files. may prevent Bluetooth driver from loading. Intel Graphics driver and later no longer support DirectX 12 on 1607. Besides, has laggy UHD Blu-ray playback issues. ( still supports DirectX 12 on 1709) I can enable Thunderbolt port by disabling VT-d in BIOS. Although it is possible to install Thunderbolt 3 DCH driver with modified INF files and update the firmware to version 62, Thunderbolt service is unavailable because 1607 does not support extension INF. After uninstalling the DCH driver, registry cleanup is required before installing Thunderbolt 3 Legacy driver, so I don't recommend installing the DCH driver. https://community.intel.com/t5/Intel-NUCs/NUC8i7BEH-BIOS-version-0083-and-eGPU-issues-and-a-workaround/td-p/1201583/page/2?profile.language=en https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/information-protection/kernel-dma-protection-for-thunderbolt
  3. The Steam patch of NieR:Automata released on July 15 supports Windows 10 and Windows 7/8.1. But 1607 is not compatible with the Windows 10 game patch and gets stuck on a black window, so I have to run Windows 7/8.1 version. PSO2 New Genesis benchmark and FFXIV: Endwalker benchmark work on 1607. Besides, Windows cumulative update removes Flash Player and its control panel from 1607.
  4. I am using inbox VGA driver. I tried VBEMP and the SVGA driver few years ago. I need to open MS-DOS command prompt window, so VBEMP is not a perfect solution. Unfortunately, the SVGA driver from Windows 3.1 results in graphical glitches because the OS is Traditional Chinese version. If I have different motherboard, maybe I can run the emulator at SVGA mode with Integrated Radeon R7, but it is not my purpose.
  5. I tried to compare GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and Radeon R7 Graphics again by running DOS version of Zsnes. Integrated Radeon R7 supports VESA2. It also supports VGA, SVGA (crashing), and SXGA (supported legacy video modes). GeForce GTX 1660 Ti can't initialize VESA2. It supports SXGA (HDMI) and QHD (Displayport). I can open MS-DOS command prompt in full-screen mode, but the workaround does not always work.
  6. When I tried to launch an MS-DOS command prompt window in Windows 98 SE, my screen went blank. I could restart my computer by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del, so the OS didn't freeze. I didn't notice the issue because I can boot to command prompt without problem. And I guess other modern GPUs may have same issue because 32-bit operating systems are no longer supported. I can open MS-DOS command prompt window with old integrated Radeon R7 Graphics (Kaveri).
  7. Someone in Guru3D forum combined 21.5.2 and 21.6.1 as a workaround.
  8. I tried to modify U0368764.inf in Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.6.1, but Windows 10 version 1607 crashed during installation. However, it seems that latest AMD HDA device driver still works. https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/release-notes/rn-rad-win-21-6-1 https://community.amd.com/t5/blogs/product-and-os-support-update-for-radeon-software-adrenalin-21-6/ba-p/477423 https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/faq/PA-120
  9. Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will be retired on June 15, 2022 for certain versions of Windows 10. And Microsoft Edge with IE mode is officially replacing IE 11 desktop application. It seems that IE mode will be supported through 2029. https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2021/05/19/the-future-of-internet-explorer-on-windows-10-is-in-microsoft-edge/ https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/windows-it-pro-blog/internet-explorer-11-desktop-app-retirement-faq/ba-p/2366549
  10. I think it is reserved for Windows Server 2012.
  11. You can run 32-bit and 64-bit programs on 64-bit Windows 10, but you will spend more time installing cumulative updates, so you may need a reliable solid state drive. Microsoft offers Intel microcode updates for Windows 10. However, Intel no longer fixes vulnerabilities for your CPU. If you can uninstall the microcode updates offered by Microsoft, you will find your answer to the performance problem. If you think the performance hit is not acceptable, you can install the firmware update for Intel ME without applying the BIOS update. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/protect-your-windows-devices-against-speculative-execution-side-channel-attacks-a0b9f66c-f426-d854-fdbb-0e6beaeeee87 https://software.intel.com/security-software-guidance/processors-affected-transient-execution-attack-mitigation-product-cpu-model
  12. I have no plan making a instruction guide for modified NVIDIA driver.
  13. If the manufacturer does not release BIOS update for your PC, you may solve the problem by learning BIOS modding. https://www.win-raid.com/forum.php
  14. Only Microsoft knows the answer. Besides, Intel does not fix Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities for Core Duo processors.
  15. 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
