That`s excellent news :)

Are you using the CPU for graphics ?

Were you able to find a graphics driver ? Did Windows Update find them ??

Intel says kabylake isn't compatible with win 7, as there is no specific graphics driver for it. Are you using one from skylake or are you using a graphics card?

Windows 10 x64

Hi @n0sferatu

I know It's been very long time after you wrote this article but I want to explain what I did to install on kaby lake.

1. First you should download your ethernet driver for windows 7 x64 or which system you have
2. you should prepare windows 7 dvd using by iso.
3. you should choose boot section by CD/DVD from boot sector ( If you have quick boot button you can choose from there)
(you won't be allowed to use USB driver after installation because of this you should put your ethernet driver on another DVD or CD)
4. After installation you should just install your ethernet driver and plug your ethernet cable.
5. go to browser and download driver pack solution from original web site via connect ethernet.
6. setup driver pack solution and check your drivers
7. then Install drivers are using by driver pack solution.

I followed this than I could use my usb and all of my drivers properly.

I hope I could help.

Kindly regards kith.
