    I gave up on old laptops, along time ago. Especially the ones where it was next impossible to access the hard drives. And than some that had Ram under the keyboard. Not to mention all the different size screws on older generations.

    Try use Windows 10 32bits, I had tried P4 with LGA775 and with 3GB or 4GB of ram.. should work and I had tried before, but older socket, maybe depends on Hardwares.

    I think people are smart enough by now to check specs, before using any bit ISOs. All ISOs I used are 32bit (x86).

    On your keyboard, just hold down Windows logo and Pause and it brings up specs.

    Use MX-4, way better.

    I believe the only way to install 10 on old CPU is x86.
