it won't take an M2 NVME card, for one thing, while the Asus has space for two.

Looks like the H310MHD PRO2 6.x has an M2 connector

Also the H310MHG Ver. 6.x

Siw2,
When I click on the link It doesn't open a download option, it opens a browser page with a lot of characters. Never saw this before.
But if I right click and select "save link as" it will save as win7_8th_i3_i5_Driver_2.0.rar file.

That's why this biostar tool may be so important - if it indeed... it makes win7 available on the latest hardware without requiring technical expertise, which is a huge win for those wanting to use win7 on 2019 hardware.
They seem to have several win7 drivers https://download.biostar.com.tw/uplo...tupChipset.zip

Best motherboard manufacturers. Biostar provides various high quality motherboard gaming series, including am4 motherboa

Yep, checked those out. Unfortunately, no-one in NZ seems to stock them.
Still, if the driver fixes can be applied, there may be many boards that will support W7.

Then I would remove that boot disk and put in a different disk and load win7 on it using the biostar tool. Though it is specific for 310 I would bet it would work fine for 370 too. Plus we need someone to be the guinea pig to see if it actually works on coffee lake.

JohnHo: I assume you mean to complete the "W10 tweaking" on the existing HDD (actually a 970 M2) then replace that HDD with another and try the new 'Biostar' method of installing W7 on that?

If so, yep, I can do that, I'll just have to buy in another M2, which'll take a few days, owing to our location.

Any hard drive you have laying around will work, does not need to be M2. Btw the guy in this thread may have validated that the biostar tool works already.

That is excellent to see!

The only fly in the ointment is that because that user has a whiskey lake cpu he had to add its Hardware ID to the inf setup file. Hopefully someone somewhere will maintain that biostar tool so that it has all the newer Hardware IDs in it so that users do not have to manually add them.

Does anyone know of a page that lists the Hardware Device IDs of the cpu IGP for all sky/kaby/coffee/whiskey lake cpus? I'm able to find pages that list Hardware Device IDs, but it does NOT list the corresponding cpu model number.

For instance if you google

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3EA0

You can find that that is a whiskey lake cpu, I can't find a site that tells what cpu model number it is
