There are several “fixes” if you search, including one from Microsoft. It usually means a fresh install, but you can choose to kerp your data. I have it running 100%, on a 7 year old laptop.

the bottom line is updates need drivers and some systems are built from parts that don't have Windows 10 or 11 drivers because the people that made those parts arn't around\ interested

True, but, with the laptop mentioned, the hardware never changes, so would not normally need drivers if the existing ones are fully functional. I guess the test is, as I have done, see if the OS will run satisfactorily on the existing hardware.

I wonder, is older hardware, or microcode perhaps more vulnerable, is there a safety risk using older processors?
