Windows 7: Where to buy Windows 7 PC with Ryzen?

Here is an AMD Carrizo (not Ryzen), and it comes with Windows 7 Pro:

You aren't likely to find a Ryzen based computer which comes with Windows 7, because AMD isn't providing drivers for it:

That is, unless something has changed since this article was written.

The spying started with Win 7. I've evaded it by not downloading certain updates, but I've lost the list. Probably a list of updates for Win 10 too.

You can use Windows 7 with Ryzen, but expect no support from microsoft. Same goes for Intel's Skylake and Kaby Lake processors.

MS relented on the Win 7 support ban in Skylake and Win 7 will receive extended support until its EOL 01/14/2020.

Here's something you might try, if nothing else will work: Install virtual machine software on a Ryzen computer, and then install Windows 7 in a VM. Windows 7 will interface with the virtual machine software rather than with the computer, so you should be ok in terms of being able to update. (I don't know that for sure, but that would be my best guess.)

You could put anything you want as the host OS on your Ryzen computer -- Linux Mint comes to mind -- as long as that host OS will allow you to install virtual machine software.

As long as you have lots of memory in the computer (16GB or more), and then allocate sufficient memory to the Windows 7 VM, you aren't likely to have any performance hits from running Windows in a VM rather than as the host OS.

Win7 works fine with Ryzen. No need to fool around with virtual machines.
