    Read the country codes.
    Country code Z is not listed.
    Wonder what country that is.
    It's on my CF-D1.

    EDIT---

    Z seems to be generic for Europe

    Z is that. Also I believe that M is Canada/US

    Quick question about OS install. Been reading everything I can find and want to make sure I'm correct.

    So the best way to go about it is to install Win7 first, retrieve all the drivers manually to get everything working and then start the upgrade to 10?

    Well some say that but others say do a clean install. Either way you got a lot of work ahead of you if you want to install Windows 10 .

    I just noticed you have a MK6. Not sure if Panasonic has a W10 driver pack for the MK6. It would make it easier for you

    They might’ve done that. Still unsure

    Well, everything has gone great with windows 7 so far. I installed Pro OEM and sure enough the motherboard was quite happy with that and I was even greeted by a lovely Panasonic wallapaper upon getting to the desktop!

    I downloaded the one click driver bundle for the MK6 Win7x64 and the whole lot was working straight away. Front buttons, utilities, ports and everything :)

    The installer only seemed to fail on one thing. Which upon checking device manger is my f5521gw Ericsson WAN card. I shall have to look for a driver for that somewhere next.

    Think I'll have fun in 7 for a while until I inevitably ruin everything with a 10 upgrade. I might ride out Win7 support here altogether maybe.

    This message was typed using a newly restored cf-19 mk6 :p

    Since you got W7 Pro up and running good and if you have a spare HDD do a full backup / image of that drive so if you do try W10 and it does not go as planned you will have that drive to get your 19 back up and running again. That's what I did on my CF-53. I had a spare caddy and HDD and lucky I did because W10 did not go as planned for me . Been running W7 Pro 64 bit since with no problems at all .

    What a new thing called backups can do :)
