    It's the same OS but different edition so it should be fine. However, make sure the limitations with embedded don't affect you.

    Is it true that win7 is not supported after 6th gen?

    Also maybe one can be kind and provide complete list of drivers needed, its for win8.1. Can find links myself just need to know drivers needed.

    Please excuse for terrible English/grammar.

    Yes, Win7 is not supported by MSI. Use what MSI provided because other OSes aren't supported, besides, Win10 is so much better than Win8/8.1/Win7.

    For SSD, you can use default driver and the Windows format tool will take care of the parameters for you automatically.

    MSI included windows 7 in their chipset driver installation for 8th gen processors though.

    You're right. Some manufacturers such as Intel does offer drivers for other platforms from the same driver package and you can still get the system to work with other OSes.
    If you look hard enough you can definitely find the drivers for some platforms, and the rest lands on BIOS support.

    At first I really disliked windows 10. I wasn't a fan at all, but it takes some getting used to. After running it for about 2 months, i don't think i can ever go back to windows 7. Despite what people say, windows 7 is so much slower then windows 10. Why would you want to downgrade and go backwards? Just need to tweak some settings and that's it. Its not as bad as it seems, and I used to hate it lol.
