Which one X86 machines Windows 10 will not support ?
Briefly 32 bit. More specific about what is requested ?
Data Execution Prevention (DEP)
When DEP is enabled on a system that has a processor that supports the NX feature, PAE is automatically enabled. The system firmware must have NX on and DEP policy must not be set to Always Off.
All processors that support NX also support Streaming SIMD Extensions 2 (SSE2). SSE2 is an Intel Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) processor supplementary instruction set.
A certification test is included to certify that a system meets this NX support requirement.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: O tempora ! Now you can't run latest windows if it is 32 bit. PAE supports only 4+ GB address space. That's why are the latest smartphones 64 bit. To be ready for Win 10. See them on the picture above on the left ? Yes ? Then OK.
