    Windows 7 on 2020 MacBook Pro


    Hi,


    I am trying to install Windows 7 on a 2020 MacBook Pro: MacBook Pro "Core i5" 2.0 13" 2020 4 TB 3 Specs (2020 13" (4 TB 3), MWP72LL/A*, MacBookPro16,2, A2251, 3348): EveryMac.com I integrated NVME and USB 3.0 drivers (from XP2ESD pack) and deployed it using DISM. I then used the FlashBootPro 3.3n UEFI boot files. I also used canonking’s modified ACPI: acpi-sys.zip - Google Drive. However, when I try to boot it, this happens: Windows 7 on 2020 MBP - YouTube. It hangs for some reason. How do I get past this?

    I suggest that you post on Macrumors and see if they know. MacRumors Forums Maybe someone there has put 7 on that model.

    UPDATE: I've gotten the Windows 7 PE to boot. However, I cannot interact with the Mac at all, even with USB drivers slipstreamed. How do I get past this?

    I think that you need to get help from people that deal with Macs. That model isn't designed for anything less than Windows 10. That's why I suggested Macrumors so they could advise you further. This is a hardware issue not a windows 7 issue and they specialize in Mac hardware. Hopefully they'll know what you need to do. Macs have specialized configurations.
