Windows 7: Need help installing Windows7 on 8th Generation CPU

Have you got the most recent bios for your motherboard? Possibly a bios update is needed as well as the drivers. Not sure, but worth having a look to see if there is a newer bios for you.

Even if it is a "new" machine, there might be more recent stuff for it on the manufacturer website.

What is the machine and model number?

Have not turned it on yet. No point if a W7 install is not possible.
And it seems that AMD dos not offer chipset drivers for the Rysen 2200U or any of the Ryzen mobile APU editions.

I have downloaded several AMD chipset packages, starting with "AMD chipset-drivers-software-17.10-rcp22-apr27" thru "AMD Chipset Drivers April 22 2019 18.50.0422".

Opened them up - Ryzen 3 APU not present. Yes, there are USB drviers, but not chipset.

Also went through several of AMD's Radeon Graphics driver packages, including "AMD Radeon Adrenalin 2019 Edition Graphics Driver 19.4.3".

Yes, it appears to include Ryzen Mobile, but does NOT have the low-level chipset drivers - so seems pointless.

I also admit, I'm coming into this situation totally clueless.

Yes. I saw and read some of that thread. And thank you again for responding.

I'll go over the entire thread and then ask.
