    The latest is - Control Center Driver 5.0001.1.17 (07_Hotkey_170301.zip).
    Most of the updates are to stay in line with Windows version updates. You should use the latest.

    Hello John,

    Thank you for the reply. Do you know how to address the ACPI incompatibility issue with the BIOS when attempting to install Windows 7?

    I would greatly appreciate your help on this matter.

    Hummm

    Have you tried setting OS Select to "Others" in BIOS, and disabling UEFI Boot?
    I´m really not sure, i would need to test it myself, give an hour or so, i should be able to answer that.

    Ok tried it, even with advanced boot and acpi settings no combination of settings will change anything, same ACPI error.
    I´m sorry but i dont know any way to make it boot windows 7, would probably need to read on the subject to check if there is any workaround.

    To my understanding, changing the default settings with the default Clevo BIOS doesn't fix the situation.

    I would be eternally grateful if you were able to find a fix, most likely with flashing the BIOS. If I can be any assistance please let me know.

    Thank you for your time <3

    This may be some help. On the XMG driver downloads page, follow directory(s).
    XMG > XMG_A505_und_A705 > Drivers > Win7
    XMG > XMG_A505_und_A705 > Bios > XMG_A705 or XMG_A505

    As you can see, a previous model prior to the N870HK1 was able to support Windows 7 as drivers are available. I wonder what we need to extract from that BIOS and add to the N870HK1's?

    Does anyone know what would happen if you switched out the i7-7700HQ for a 6th gen or lower processor? Would it be able to suddenly support other operating systems? Cause other issues?

    Was not aware the chips were soldered in place on the N870Hk1, are you sure of this? If yes, does this mean new thermal paste can not be applied?

    They are soldered to the motherboard but the heatsink is not soldered to the chips.
