Will New AMD x570 chipset mobos have Win 7 Chipset Drivers?!

Will these new Motherboards have windows 7 Drivers from AMD???

MSI X570 Gaming Plus & Pro Carbon For AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs Leaked

the Lan/Wifi sound & usb's will surely have windows 7 drivers but the the chipset drivers i think it's unlikely!

what do you think?

Yes AMD says/Have-to-say only win10 is supported, since AMD is a Microsoft Partner...

with Ryzen 3000 you have the same issue you had with Ryzen 1000/2000 on windows 7

Windows 7 lacks Ryzen USB 3.x Drivers, in the case of Ryzen the usb controllers are inside the CPU itself...

The solution was to use a PS/2 Keyboard & to install the chipset drivers which do support Windows 7 (Ryzen 1000/2000) Or Slipstream USB3/nvme/xahci drivers into Win7 ISO b4 installing (using ASUS EZ installer & Gigabytes Windows USB Installation Tool)

ok what about installing a Ryzen 3000 on a B350/X370/B450/X470 motherboard (ofcourse after you update bios)??? again the USB 3.x controllers are inside the CPU but this time, there are NO ryzen3000 drivers for windows7!!! is there a solution???

Here is the answer
I '''fixed''' Windows 7 USB support for Matisse / Ryzen 3000 on X370 / X470 (and others too). Here'''s how to do it: : Amd

alright, now what about the Ryzen 3000 + x570 Mobtherboards! on win7???

I have great news for you! it is possible! but the above solution wont work, or may not be enough

Here what you will need:

1. PS/2 Keyboard/Mouse (If your x570 motherboard does NOT have a PS/2 you will need to buy a PCI express x1 to USB 2.0 adapter) there is absolutely no need to use USB3.0 adapter EVEN if you have USB3 installed or slipstreamed! just use USB2 it will 100% work without any drivers... that adapter is cheap

2. after logging into Winows 7 you will need to install the latest AMD Chipset Drivers from AMD's Website
there is a note here! on ASUS website they say this:

2019/08/0249.87 MBytes
AMD Chipset driver
- Fixed Destiny 2 application launch issues.
- Updated AMD Ryzen Balanced power plan
- Update AMD chipset driver 19.10.xx first before update this driver <------- so you may need to install 19.10 before latest one!

3. after installing AMD Chipset Drivers now we need the modded Drivers all that was needed is to change the Device id's & it will work flawlessly, any skilled one can do that!
just like installing Mouse Drivers like Logitech's Setpoint Drivers for your non-Logitech mouse which are far superior to windows7 native drivers from 2006!!! both have different id's but it will work flawlessly! (i'll make an article about this later)

Now there is a very kind person from Win-Raid Forums & SMXDIY canonkong who made all this for you

you can download all the modded drivers for Ryzen3000+X570 for Windows7 here
Forum - [Solution] Win7 drivers for USB 3.0/3.1 Controllers of new AMD X570 mainboard.

from the picture he shared of what seems to be an x570 motherboard with Ryzen 3700x there are no Yellow (!) marks, which means all hardware/devices are recognized by windows 7
Will New AMD x570 chipset mobos have Win 7 Chipset Drivers?!-095905er8ndkr6bkzzpp4e.png

Will there be BSODs like those that plagued Ryzen 1000 & Ryzen 2000 at the beginings on win7 & earlier builds of win10, which seem to have been fixed with Bios + Chipset Drivers + later win10 versions
What about win7??? do people still get those PCI BSODs?! i really don't know the answer because i don't have a Ryzen system, It will be my next system & i plan to still use win7!
I have a friend who returned a Ryzen 1000 system & purchased an older intel system because of those frequent BSODs...
I hope it's not the case now...

So, can you u Enjoy the latest Ryzen System capabilities while still using Win7???

I'm very happy to say the answer appears to be yes :)

is it trouble free? no bsods or issues?

I don't know, I hope not! but time will tell, anyone here who purchased a x570 mobo + ryzen 3000 would help us alot by sharing their experience...

I 'fixed' Windows 7 USB support for Matisse / Ryzen 3000 on X370 / X470 (and others too). Here's how to do it:


My Ryzen 9 3900X works fine on Windows 7, however I seemed to have lost all my USB ports on the back of my motherboard since the on-die Matisse USB 3.0 controller is not supported on Windows 7 and has no drivers from AMD.
However, with a bit of hacky-whacky, I managed to get it working by tricking Windows 7 into using the Ryzen 1000/2000 driver anyway. I figured AMD wouldn't have changed the on-die USB controller significantly. It should work on all pre-x570 motherboards, since the controller is standalone and on-die. I'll tell you how to do it, however;
DISCLAIMER: This workaround is at your own risk. I have not extensively tested it except for that it now works and I'm typing this post in Windows 7 on the Matisse USB 3.0 Controller.
Now, without further ado:
Foolproof Matisse Windows 7 USB tutorial:
  • Plug keyboard/mouse in front-usb so you can navigate Windows 7
  • Download the latest AMD Chipset Windows 7 drivers from AMD:
  • Start the installation such that the installer extracts its contents into C:\AMD. You don't need to finish the installation, but it can't do harm either.
  • Browse to C:\AMD\Chipset_Driver_Installer\AMD_Chipset_Drivers\MSIFiles\program files\AMD\Chipset_IODrivers\USBController Driver\Win7\x64 and open 'amdxhc.inf' in notepad.
  • We're going to trick Windows into installing drivers for Ryzen 1- and 2000 for the 3000 series. Find this block:
%AMDXHCI.DeviceDesc% = AMDXHCI, PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_145C
%AMDXHCI.DeviceDesc% = AMDXHCI, PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_15E0
%AMDXHCI.DeviceDesc% = AMDXHCI, PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_15E1
%AMDXHCI.DeviceDesc% = AMDXHCI, PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_145F
  • Change DEV_145C to DEV_149C, resulting in
%AMDXHCI.DeviceDesc% = AMDXHCI, PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_149C
%AMDXHCI.DeviceDesc% = AMDXHCI, PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_15E0
%AMDXHCI.DeviceDesc% = AMDXHCI, PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_15E1
%AMDXHCI.DeviceDesc% = AMDXHCI, PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_145F
  • Go to device manager, right click the unrecognized USB controller "Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller" and choose "Update driver software"
  • Choose "Browse my computer for driver software"
  • Click "Browse" and direct it to C:\AMD, and make sure to check the checkbox "Include subfolders". It should now search for your modified .inf file. Alternatively, you can direct it all the way to C:\AMD\Chipset_Driver_Installer\AMD_Chipset_Drivers\MSIFiles\program files\AMD\Chipset_IODrivers\USBController Driver\Win7\x64
  • You will be prompted to install the driver software. Choose "Install anyway"
You're done. USB works.

Windows 7 on Ryzen 3900x X570 Boards

I found this video, where the guy installs Win7 on the new Ryzen chipset with a 3900x. Seems like he tried it as an experiment, but looks like it worked!

Windows 7 64 bit
Ryzen 3900X does work on Windows 7

I have been using Window 7 on a Ryzen 3900X with a MSI x570 Gaming plus motherboard successfully now for about a month and a half. The AMD X470 Windows 7 drivers here work in conjunction with the beta X570 drivers in the description from this YouTube video: YouTube to provide all of the necessary drivers for Windows 7 to operate correctly.

Here are some screenshots:

P.S. The Windows Experience Index in the screenshot above was from before I updated my graphics card.

Two questions 1. Does Windows 7 automatically install chipset drivers? 2. Which part of the device manager is the chipset?
Why do I have chipset drivers when I don't use an nvidia chipset? I have GTX 460 with 258.96 drivers. I do not have an nVidia chipset. When I went to check the Driver Sweeper files, I found all these chipset files. Why do I have them?
