Hey guys, I bought an msi rx460 2gb graphic card, I think it was 2 or 3 years ago, anyway I couldn't use it due to compatibility issues I think, I don't catch the problem, so I'm trying to use it again with the same setup, help please ? Windows 10, 64 bits, Mb intel dp35dp, ddr2 ram 7 gb 667mhz, core 2 dual e8500 3.16ghz, 600W psu, when I try to turn on the pc, it's getting freezing in the kernel, intel logo screen, used the Ddu to eliminate old cars drivers, the gpu is working fine in another setup, but my old hd6450 broke so here we are

with that motherboard its a no go as its a issue between the Graphics cards VBIOS being a Full UEFi Compliant one that has no Legacy Support.

your motherboard has no support for a UEFI VBIOS so its impossible to get it to work as full UEFI VBIOS is all that is available for that graphics card and your motherboard is massively outdated as LGA775 sockets have been long dead for around a decade now so you will have no luck trying to get the 2 to work together as there is nothing that can be done.

Sadly it is a misconception that a legacy vbios is needed on a legacy board which is not the case. A UEFI vbios works well in legacy mode as it is hybrid. A UEFI vbios only causes issues on later boards not using a legacy bios but early UEFI which is not GOP compliant.

However there is more that can cause compatibility issues especially if the parts are from totally different generations. The board most likely lacks bios support to cover much later radeon cards. You will need to try what graphics card works.
