A registry hack allows Intel Atom based Windows 8 tablet owners to upgrade their device to Windows 10. Many users with the Intel SoC based tablets were unable to upgrade to Windows 10 as the upgrade tool doesn’t allow them due to a compatibility issue.

Interesting, wonder if that would let my Atom N450 Netbook update (GMA3150) - pretty sure I saw reports of them running Insider builds

I had success with a Dell Latitude ST with a Z670 Atom processor moving from 8.1 to the Windows 10 upgrade using USB installation media created with Microsoft’s USB/ISO tool. No failed test, just took a lot of time.

I downloaded the tool from there, used the tool to download the universal 32/64-bit ISO (you can’t leave it on auto for that) and extracted the ISO using WinRAR to a folder on my Windows 7 32/64-bit installer USB drive. I used it three times in the past week to upgrade PCs to Windows 10. I figure it’s best to get in before the upgrade deadline.
