Hello, I am attempting to install windows 10 on a dell optiplex gx520. However, I get an error saying 0x5D or "UNSUPPORTED_PROCESSOR". Apperantly a Pentium 4 isn't good enough... Anyway, is there a way to install win 10 on a gx520?

Without an upgrqaded processor, I doubt it can be done.

that's the way it is with Windows..... want the newest version? You need the newest hardware.

A/V Software? I don't need A/V software. I've run Linux since '98 w/o A/V software and have never had a virus. I never even had a firewall until '01 when I began to get routers with firewalls pre installed. With Linux if a vulnerability is detected a fix is quickly found and then upon your next update the vulnerability is patched.  If you must worry about viruses  on a Linux system only worry about them in the sense that you can infect a windows user. I recommend Linux Mint or, if you need a lighter weight operating system that fits on a cd, MX14 or AntiX.

you do not need the latest hardware with Linux.

Sorry for my stupidity, but I was trying to install x64 bit windows when the computer supports only x32 bit.

Accidents and errors happen. You're only stupid when you don't learn from the results.
