As someone else mentioned, Windows 10 will no longer work with an AGP card

Or better to keep my ATI ALL-IN-WONDER X1900 pci-express for Windows 10 (last releases do not support AGP)

Has anyone tried the fix mentioned here with these boards?

I just bought one and I want to try Windows 10 2004 on it when it arrives.

The fix basically seems to be just a small registry change and manually replacing the "PCI to PCI bridge" with the AGP bridge driver from Windows 10 1511 (last version before it was removed).

I tried that in 1903 last year on an Athlon 64 system without luck, nvidia gpus were still running in PCI mode and ATI didn't even work at all (code 43), a werid issue probably also related to Windows 10 AGP incompatibility is that it treats Geforce FX PCI and PCIe cards as AGP cards and consequently fails to load the driver (same issue as ATI), i've seen also reports is doing the same to PCI Geforce 6 cards

System was a Pentium D 950 machine with a Gigabyte GA-8N775, 8 GB RAM and a 500 GB HDD, PCIe cards worked and the nvidia 96.85 works in Windows 10 when used with a Geforce 6-7, but not FX

I don't see much reason to run Windows 10 on such system. There's perfectly serviceable Windows 8.1. And after its demise... you just don't want to use Win10 with 3,5 Gb of RAM at best.

Just a quick update: I can confirm that AGP still works on Windows 10 2004 64bit with an ATI HD4650 card.

I just replaced the "PCI to PCI bridge" with the "VIA CPU to AGP controller" (via agp.inf) - had to disable driver signature enforcement for that.
Then I imported the .reg file.

Windows did still throw the Error 43 message for the card, so I had to install the 12.4 AGP Hotfix drivers (12-4_agp-hotfix_vista_win7_64_dd_ccc.exe) and voila - now it runs! I'm a little afraid that Windows Update will try to replace that driver again in the future with the shipped one (which is newer, but broken). That can probably be disabled, though.

I've put a Q9550 and an SSD into the machine and Windows 10 is working pretty well. Not as well as Windows XP, but it's nice to have a machine that still supports Windows 98SE and the latest Windows version. 😀

AGP drivers for 32bit and 64bit attached.

That is impressive . Either a 17-year span or a 22-year one, depening on how you count .(windows 10 being always current).
