    I do. It works better for Sky Lake, Kaby Lake or Coffee Lake than Windows 10 does. It is a blatant lie and a scam that Micro$loth states that Windows 10 is required for support and full functionality of these processors. They are bald-faced liars and will say or do anything to try to force people into adopting that piece of trash OS.
    Better yet, use the ASUS EZ Installer tool and it automatically adds USB 3, USB 3.1 and NVMe support. You can use it to create a USB installer from DVD, ISO, or update an existing USB installer with support for modern tech. Just a few clicks and it is done. It is not specific to ASUS and adds no ASUS branding. You can use it to install Windows 7 on anything, any brand, regardless what the lying sacks of feces from Redmond want us to believe.

    I guess Micro$hit ask manufacturers to not support Windows 7 with drivers. However AMD is a smaller company and for them matters that plus sales, what Windows 7 support can generate.
    For next I will not be suprised if Nvidia also drop support for Volta.

    Mr. Fox:
    Good to see a screenshot finally from someone, who running Windows 7 on Coffe Lake. Did you managed to install IGP driver or you have dedicated GPU and you use that all time?
