Well with Kaby Lake and the Z270 Boards Win 7 is a Bust.. you can get it installed. it is the behavior when in windows that makes it unusable..

I had no USB Drivers installed, Mouse Very irattic and jumping and opening windows when moving around uncontrollable.. I also had massive freezes when doing things not related to OC as I DEclocked it and it still Froze up.. I just installed Win 10 for now.. Maybe I should have gotten a Skylake CPU..

It must be the board.

I seriously doubt it has anything to do with W7, as others have installed it.

Yep I would`ve gotten a Skylake, Kaby Lake is no improvement.

Has it been 30 days ? Maybe you can return it.


Windows 10 is ok, you`ll get used to it, in about a year

But seriously, it`s not so bad, just customize it and you`ll be fine.

Ya it`s not bad at all, I have it on the other Samsung and use it every now and then, no dual boot, I unplug 7 when I wanna use 10. But it`s mostly 7 for me

fwiw I just upgraded two older (one amd. one intel) win7 machines to Z270 motherboards with i7 7700k cpus with zero issues. Prior to the swap I just manually changed the device driver for the boot drive to the standard AHCI driver, and put the new motherboard's drivers on the desktop before shutting down the old machine. In each case it booted right up. I don't like sysprep generalize because it resets too many of my customizations. As mentioned, did not use usb 3.0 ports at first bootup either.

You`re saying you hooked the OS drives from those 2 older machines to the 2 new Z270 boards and you had no issues ?

Although it worked for you, Just me, but I`d never do that.

This further proves W7 will work fine on Kaby Lake, it`s just getting it installed that gives some people problems.

yes that's what I'm saying. Windows 7 is more boot/upgrade tolerant than previous versions just as long as it can load the hard drive controller, you just have to remember to set the bios to ahci on the new machine (assuming you don't use raid) and load the generic drive controller in device manager before shutting down the old machine for the final time. If it had not worked, I would have gone back and rebooted the hard drive while attached to the old motherboard and then done a sysprep generalize.

The only issue with that is your license/s (Technically) would have to be Retail or possibly even System Builder to move them to a new board.

Or if you had new oem keys you could just use them.
