Updating Compaq 8200 Elite

Compaq 8200 Elite CMT
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


I have a  Compaq 8200 Elite CMT  running Windows 10 Pro  64 with 8 GIG RAM.   I need to update some of the software and drivers, etc,  but when trying to reply to the query of what operating system I am using, Windows 10 is not given as a choice.  Is one of the others compatable or am I forever doomed to being unable to update?  Any suggestions?

Updating Compaq 8200 Elite

Hi:

 

What drivers or software need updating? 

 

The only driver I changed was the sata controller driver from the standard AHCI controller to the one that it is supposed to be which is the Intel(R) Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller.

 

I have 2 8200 Elite CMT's running W10 Pro 64 bit, 32GB of memory in each one, and neither of them need any driver or software updates.

 

Whatever you do, don't update the BIOS to v2.29.

 

This is what will happen if you do...
