Hello, there was a little bit of discussion on this in the Kaby Lake 5ghz thread, but I thought I'd start a new thread for anyone using Kaby Lake processors with windows 7 to post their experiences as they get settled in with their new processor. Are there issues or was the talk about Kaby Lake only working on windows 10 a bit overblown?

I'm looking at a CPU upgrade but don't want to do the windows 10 upgrade, so would probably go with the 6700k unless it's pretty clear that Kaby Lake does indeed work fine with windows 7.

Thanks

I completely overlooked this issue. I was planning on keeping Win7 (I just don't like 10 I've used it many times at work).  But I was planning 7700K.  I do have a DVD rw that I would reinstall Win7 from and I think I still have a PS/2 kb.

How about drivers for the motherboard? The web sites I have visited for a new laptop don't list any for Kaby / Win 10. Are you saying that the Win updates will carry the driver solution even on the latest motherboards?

Just did a reinstall of Win 10 with a 6700K and let

Win 10 handle all driver installs automatically.

No ? or x in Device Manager and everything seems to be running great.

Ugh, yes and they have a cousin named "Stu Pidautocorrect"...if there's a mod nearby maybe they could change the title?
