Thank you very much. I've got a Dell Optiplex GX520 and I've changed the original Celeron processor for a Pentium D 830 - after flashing you modified BIOS (mod2 - new mod) it never came again that annoying error about incompatible processor detected. Good work! Thanks again!

BTW If you have mini tower (MT) version, you can try to install BTX-motherboard from these systems:
Code:
Socket                       Chipset

LGA1156 Dell Optiplex 980    Q57

After upgrading the CPU on my GX520 to the D SL95W 940 I encountered the Incompatible Processor message each time I booted the computer. Updating the CPU was the only way I could get Windows 10 Pro 64-bit to load by having the required Virtualization support. Windows 10 Pro 64-bit loaded and ran fine, but I could never find a driver for my graphics card that would work reliable without crashing. The standard windows driver worked fine, but it did not take advantage of the features for the video to work smoothly. Hence, I finally gave up and went back to Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

I created a DOS disk and copied the first BIOS mod to the disk and loaded this BIOS update. It worked like a champ and my GX520 started right into Windows 7 with no nagging alert to press F1 to continue. I cannot thank you enough for this modified BIOS. It worked the first time!

Thank You!
