RE: Win 10 Creators Update on Inspiron 580 MT. Anyone tried this yet?

There are no updates for Non Supported Legacy hardware.
Windows 10 drivers are NEVER forthcoming for Nvidia GT220 etc. All that means is you have to use the Legacy VISTA or 7 Drivers that Apply to your system.  If you clean install WINDOWS 10 1703 you will have to put back the Legacy Drivers that Apply to your system.

Applicable Operating Systems:

  • Windows® 10 (32 & 64-bit versions)
  • Windows® 8.1 (32 & 64-bit versions)
  • Windows® 7 (32 & 64-bit versions)

Users with AMD Radeon HD 4000 Series and older products looking for driver support, please refer to KB article:  Driver Support for AMD Radeon™ HD 4000, HD 3000, HD 2000 and Older Series

 

This does not mean it will stop working or otherwise have problems.

It means that only the Legacy Drivers can be used on the unsupported hardware.

Clean installs as well as well as upgrades still work fine on many machines going back to 2005.  Earlier than that WONT WORK with 8.0 8.1 or windows 10 because they do not support NX(Execute Disable Bit) or LAHF/SAHF  CX16 etc.
