Windows 7: Bootable USB for i7 kaby lake

I don`t see why not, As long as your keyboard and mouse work throughout the install.

It`s the motherboard that causes the problem, not the cpu, I mean if I wanted to I could drop a Caby Lake in my board and it should run just fine. But there`s no point.

No one here knows for sure yet. It may work fine through the install until you get to the page to enter the username and that`s where you loose your K & M


What are you going to put the CPU into ?

Thank you for the reply. This is my first time building a pc, I only used pre-built pcs until today. I have no idea about many issues. I am going to buy MSI Bazooka B250M (I checked it on MSI's page and it has windows 7 drivers) and i5 7500. It has also USB 2.0 ports, so aren't my usb keyboard and mouse supposed to work?

I have both a USB drive and a DVD for Windows 7. So I can install from any of them.

And out of curiosity, what happens if I just plug my current HDD into the new system (MB, CPU, GPU, RAM etc.) and clean all old drivers and then install drivers for new hardware?

In theory it should work, but unless someone comes along and confirms it you`ll never know until you try.

And if MSI has W7 drivers then I really don`t see any issue

- Don't buy a B (budget) chipset. Buy a H or Z.
- Don't think that the USB 2.0 will work as they are driven by the chipset.
- On MSI site you also find a program to add the USB 3 and SATA drivers to the win 7 installation disk.
- If you put your current HDD into the new system it won't boot and you can destroy your data.

Actually, B is for business. H is the budget chipset. The chipset within the same generation doesn't matter at all, they'll all work the same way.

Putting a hard drive in a new system will not destroy someones data. User data remains untouched on the drive. The operating system will (attempt to) install new drivers and that may not work very well. Putting it back may cause further problems. Changing hardware can cause the license to become invalid. It will would need to be checked again.

As it stands, what we have with Kaby Lake desktop is effectively Sandy Bridge polished to within an inch of its life, a once-groundbreaking CPU architecture hacked, and tweaked, and mangled into ever-smaller manufacturing processes and power envelopes. Where the next major leap in desktop computing power comes from is still up for debateóbut if Kaby Lake is any indication, it won't be coming from Intel.

It worked! And I just used MSI Tool from its website. My keyboard and mouse worked perfectly and still work. I didn't change anything on bios, it detected USB instantly. Though I have another problem now, thanks everyone.
