Windows 10 is Almost a Must with Intel 100 Series Chipsets
Reviewed in the United States on December 22, 2017
I've been using Windows 10 Pro 64-bit for about a year and a half. Overall it's a good OS. I was not planning on getting it when I did. I was running my system with Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit for several years. I was planning to continue using Windows 7 when I upgraded my computer to the Intel 100 series chipset. I learned the hard way that Windows 7 and the Intel 100 series chipset do not play nice together. Certain drivers that were native to prior chipsets have been remove, and those drivers are now in Windows 10. So if you want to install Windows 7 on a 100 series chipset you have to play around with doing a driver injection or making a special boot disk. I tried both, and after installing Windows 7 the 100 series chipset system never worked right. Key things like Microsoft Aero would not work. So I went and got Windows 10 Pro. It installed with no problems on the 100 series chipset. At first, I preferred Windows 7 Ultimate, but as they continued to improve Windows 10 with updates it got better. Windows 10 is more memory efficient with the RAM too. Overall, I have come to like Windows 10 Pro. But if you are buying a system with an Intel 100 series or higher chipset, you will want to save yourself a lot of headaches and go with Windows 10.
