Among my various computers, I have an ASUS X205TA which is a 32-bit tablet. I have been installing the latest 21H1 version on my computers and the tablet is the last however, when attempting to install 21H1, before the actual installation begins, I get an error message stating that Windows 10 is not compatible with the Broadcom 802.11agbn wireless SDIO adapter and the installation of 21H1 will go no further. The tablet was originally running Windows 8.1 but I converted to Windows 10 with no problems.

I tried disabling the adapter first but that resulted in the same message. Does anyone have an idea how I can bypass the adapter and get 21H1 installed? I have not tried uninstalling the adapter via Device Manager. Searching the web for an updated 32-bit driver yields very little. My current driver is version 5.93.102.19 dated 2017; there is also a Microsoft driver that is dated 2015. Any ideas? Any driver available dated later than 2017?

Hi,

Certain devices aren't yet ready to upgrade to the latest Windows 10 version. If you're using the 20H2 version, then you can continue to use it, it will not be outdated soon.

I suggest you wait for a certain time for the 21H1 version to be compatible with your WiFi adapter. The update should be available as soon as your tablet is fully supported.
