I had to check the date lol...

I know some companies still use old shit... in Bank Of America in 2010 we still had a Windows 95 PC that was online ONLY when we had to add or Remove people from the security cards :p ( to update each door)
AFter 10 minutes the PC crashed from overheating or something ... so we had to work fast :p

SO does that mean this Windows 7 download they provide has the USB3 drivers and M.2 Drivers already to go? as you cant install W7 if you dont have the USB3 drivers already there in the ISO or use a PS2 keyboard

It will be full with bugs, unstable drivers and risky to run it as "zhe drivers" will be crippled to mimic an walk but don't run !
It's just smoke and mirrors or vaporwave to sell, sell ,sell !

btw. windows 7 don't support pure efi, tpm 2.0, secure boot and very important GOP video !
let the suckers rush and buy, without them companies won't sell !

When I started working at my current workplace in 2009, we had a very similar setup, except the Windows 95 PC that the card system was running on had been switched on and running 24/7 since the 90s. It was an old Toshiba laptop. They must have put some serious bloody components in these machines; it was still running until the door security system was upgraded in 2011!

Didn't all B365 boards support Windows 7? I thought a couple years back Intel explicitly said that they'll keep CSM for this one.

Yes. Pretty much whole point of their "WindowsTool" is to inject USB3 drivers(both AMD and Intel) and NVME hotfixes into your Win7 image.
I think GB and ASUS have similar tools for 200/300-series boards.

Bullshit. You still can extend W7 support for a few years. First year it's like 50$ or so.

If i could have gone back to 7 i'd do it.

No you can't, an Enterprise customer that's part of software assurance can.

It's available for both enterprise, and pro users:
Businesses should be warned, though, that Microsoft’s ESUs don’t come cheap. The updates will cost $25 per device for Windows 7 Enterprise users in the first year and rise to $100 per device by the third year. Windows 7 Professional users will have to pay even more, with prices starting at $50 per device in year one, rising to $200 per device in the final year.

So yes; you could still run 7 with updates for a good year, its just going to cost you 50$ if you have the Pro version.

I really dislike W10; but i'm kind of forced to use it.

software assurance customers have pro and enterprise versions, i worked for a company that ran pro that activated against our KMS because pro was cheaper than enterprise licensing, it has to do with the size of the company, but you still need to be in the agreement with microsoft which costs alot more than 50 bucks to do.
