Win10 32bit drivers for there HP Prodesk 400's

HP Recommended
HP Prodesk 400 G6 with Intel chipset B360
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hi,

 

HP have stopped making Win10 32bit drivers for there HP Prodesk 400's 

 

Is there any reason for this since Windows 32Bit is still being supported by Microsoft?  We require chipset drivers for the intel B360 just to load a 32bit system on.

Hi:

 

It is Intel, not HP that did not develop 32 bit drivers for several devices...graphics, USB, chipset...

 

You won't be able to install any 32 bit OS on there because it is a lack of USB 3/3.1 32 bit drivers that prevent the KB and mouse from working.

Thanks for your reply.

 

The HP Prodesk is a pretty common machine if I'm not mistaken, surely this can have implications on companies that purchase these that still run Legacy software?

 

is this not something they would have looked into resolving?

You're very welcome.

 

Since I don't work for or represent HP, Microsoft or Intel, I cannot answer your question.

 

The only solution is to use older PC's where operations require, such as the Prodesk 400 G3's with the Intel Skylake processors and chipsets--nothing newer.

 

32 bit operating systems have gone the way of the dinosaur.

 

We had to set up special ancient 486 processor PC's to run some legacy laboratory software because our procedures called for running a specific software which only ran on that kind of platform.  

 

And we had to pay a fortune to keep those old relics running. 

 

Since we were regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration, we could not deviate from this procedure, unless we found new software that would work on newer hardware, and then wrote a new procedure, and got it approved by the FDA.

 

We can't tell Intel, Microsoft and HP that they have to keep developing hardware and drivers that support ancient software for our individual purposes.

 

it is we unfortunately, that have to adapt to the new hardware.
