I recently started teaching at a school that provides the teachers with MacBooks . So I took my personal PC to school. I want to bring it home.
I have an old Dell Dimension 8400 here that I could use at school. The OS is Windows 7 Ultimate x86. Because it has to run two monitors and an electronic white board (Promethean Board) a Windows 10 compatible video card was added (VisionTek Radeon 6450 1 GB).
The RAM has been increased to 4GB and the HD was replaced with a Samsung 840 SSD.
Finally, I clicked on the "Get Windows 10" icon and got the message that my CPU was not Windows 10 compatible. It is lacking the NX bit implementation.
The CPU is a Pentium 4 550, and after a little research I found that the Pentium 4 660 should be compatible. I found a used one for sale cheap, should be here Wednesday.
Is there any other surprises that I might run into hardware wise? I really want to take the Dell to school and bring my other computer home.
