I found this interesting topic on another forum:

http://www.wpuniverse.com/vb/showthread.php?36365-...l-screen-in-32-bit-Windows-7-(with-limitations)

and it seems to confirm XP drivers for video card will (sometimes) work, but only in Win 7 32-bit, not Windows 10. As far as I know, XP drivers are not available for any modern integrated Intel chipset on anything beyond core 2 duo vintage. Perhaps intel G31 and G41 series is the latest which had XP drivers released. Intel i3, i5, i7 integrated drivers were never released for XP as far as I can tell.

The idea is to use NTVDM directly in fullscreen mode, and not the slow-as-molasses DOSBOX, which I abhor due to its cripplingly slow performance.
