using win10 now for a few months now.

it works fine without any issue.
i am using stable builds only.
--------------
needed to do a double upgrade since i had a win7 32bit upgrade license lying around. and did not want to pay a 80 bucks for a new license
-----------------
took me a few days due glitching usb winxp drive.
usb win7 drive worked better.
then media creation tool to make a win10 upgrade drive.
--------------------
did for each a full clean install.
(installed all drivers on xp, they where given trough to win10)
-----------------
using a hdd cooler with some velcro for better cooling (wich is highly needed when watchin HD movies using MHCP)
since my ssd generates lot of heat. (super talent dual wide 128GB)
----------------
upgrades i did:
wifi module from 802.11BN to 802.11BGN
replaced the termal pads with new ones.


dell mini 910
supertalent dual wide ssd 128GB
2GB ddr2 400mhz ram
Realtek RTL8188SU
(not the 3G version)
hdd cooler as extra cooling

I've debated on this same issue. Seems like a toss up. Some websites I read said it works fine. Others say the RAM is not enough for Windows 10. :/ For now, I'm only going to try up to Vista.

Windows 10 is much better for RAM than Vista.

2GB is more than enough ram if you use teh 32bit version

You have no choice here - the Mini 9 is 32-bit only.

did the same, only needed to install al the drivers in the XP stage then in the win7 stage and win10 stage only the wifi driver since i had upgraded the wifi card to a better one and the driver had to be updated
