This is speculative, but I think if one attempts to take that route of circumventing the issue it would probably fail to install once it detects the processor type.

Anyone trying this may need to avoid KB4012218.

I'll call it as I see it - you're a troll. You obviously don't know me or my experience so I'll bite. ..32 yrs using MS products, 28 yrs in IT related businesses, 5 yrs managing small business nertworks, been through the dreaded software audits (have you?), have purchased and currently own licenses to $13k worth of MS software.

I know full well about what the license is all about.

No Windows Aero Supported
I have an older laptop with XP that I plan to install Windows 7 on. I ran the Windows Advisor and the only thing lacking is the Aero Support. I don't use this PC all that much and am not keen on buying a new graphics card. What will it be like without Aero? Is it really bad or just like XP was?...
