Install Windows 7 on a 170 or 270 (100 / 200 series skylake) Intel USB 3 and NVME motherboard. Many folks trying to install Windows 7 via USB on their new computer builds using motherboards with 100 series or 200 series chipsets are finding out that Windows 7 will not install.
The reason for this is Windows 7 does not have up-to-date USB drivers on the installation media. Microsoft last updated the installation media many years ago and has ignored it since. In my opinion, it's a passive-aggressive marketing technique to get you to install Windows 10 instead.
The good news is, this is something that is easily fixed and in this video I show you step-by-step how to download the latest official Windows 7 installation media, create the bootable flash drive with it and then update it with the latest USB drivers that the newest Gigabyte hardware implements.
