windows 10 installer doesnt support your motherboard.
but you can try to do the following in the BIOS :
* change SATA mode to AHCI
* change Boot mode to disable CSM/enable UEFI depnding on your BIOS
* disable Secure boot (ignore this if you cant find it)

try to install win10 again. even if you do successfully install your win10, beware that not all your devices may have compatible drivers for that OS. you can also try to install win8/8,1 drivers coz some may work on win10. if it doesnt work, set the BIOS back to CSM enabled/enable legacy/BIOS in Boot mode. and install win7 instead.
