    I don't think so that is a very old card legacy.

    It's just to old to use for Windows 10. Simple as that.

    There never had been any 64 bit drivers for it.

    A very little chance you only would have on 32 bit win10 trying to install the NT drivers......

    Or if you simply want to use that SCSI device go for Linux 32 bit (perhaps Ubuntu) and try that

    The turn from 32 bit to 64 bit broke lots of hardware's necks because lacking of 64 bit driver support. This was btw the major reason why Vista failed to become a good OS.
    People remained at XP 32 bit and 4GB RAM max. and ran their peripherals there....(besides of that XP used a lot less of RAM).

    If OP does not find any XP64 bit driver there is absolutely no chance on 64bit. I strongly assume there never had been any programmed in 64bit.
