    I was trying to upgrade to Windows 10 and got the error CompareExchange128. I am running windows 7 64 bit with 4 gig ram. My processor is an Intel Pentium Dual Core E6600 3.06 GHz 3.06. I know this has to do with the processor, so my questions are:

    1. What processor can in use in place of the on that will work with windows 10??
    2. Is there any way around this without buying a processor??

    Thanks in advance,

    Doug in 10-a-see

    Windows 10 is available as a "preview" release.
    It's not an advisable "upgrade".

    Some processors and hardware configurations aren't supported by Windows 10 Technical Preview, including a small number of older 64-bit processors.

    This applies to Windows 10 Technical Preview.

    This doesn't necessarily mean it'll apply to the final public release of Windows 10.
