Why would one have to run W10? Why not an older Windows that suits the machine? I have several machines running the combination of W98SE and XP: 98 is DOS only for my real time applications, XP because it is accepted by W7 and higher on the network. Several machines run XP only. These are package 3 versions, installed clean from the CD. No further update or whatever. But then I don't visit Internet with these machines, that I'll do with my modern well protected and updated laptop. It worked out fine for years already.
An example: modern PCs only accept one floppy drive these days. So I Found this older P3 Fujitsu and installed a 1.44 MB, 1.2 MB drive and XP. I now use it to create images of various floppies that I find or are given for this purpose.

Met vriendelijke groet / With kind regards, Ruud Baltissen
