I tried installing Windows 7 on my m.2 ssd and it goes so far and then a bsod. Then I tried to install it again and loaded the Intel 600p driver and it says it cannot install on that drive 0x80300001. I tried installing it on my Sandisk sata SSD 960gb and a Samsung 840 EVO 120gb and it says cannot install on this computer. I even made a modified version of Windows and still nothing. Any ideas or is it true that Kaby Lake will not run properly on Windows 7?

kaby is not fully supported under 7 if really at all , not hard to look that up .. and if you get it in it may not update .

that's going to be a win 10 / Linux only

this may also mean if you got 7 in and tried to upgraded to 10 that may also fail ??

The bios sees it and so does the modified windows installer. But when I click load drivers and load the Intel 600p driver from Intel's webpage, I get the message that it cannot install on this drive 0x80300001.

Here's what I did:

What you need:

Windows 7 SP1 x64.iso

Windows 10.iso

Microsoft hotfix https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2990941

NTlite https://www.ntlite.com/download/


First request and download the hotfix, e-mail arrives instantly with a link.

1. Download and install NTlite (or other similar you prefer)

2. Extract the Windows 7.iso to a folder.

If you are installing in UEFI mode, check efi/boot there should be a bootx64.efi. If not grab it from a current installation of Windows 7 x64. C:\Windows\Boot\EFI\bootmgfw.efi copy/paste and rename it to bootx64.efi.

3. Using WinRAR or 7-zip extract the Microsoft hotfix.exe file.

4. Run NTlite and open the iso folder.
You will see 2 folders your current windows and 2nd the iso folder open and choose the version you want to install, home, ultimate etc. and press load, or right click load. It takes sometime..

4.1 Go to updates and add package file. Add the extracted hotfix Windows6.1-KB2990941-v3-x64.msu
(for experienced users: you can add more updates if you want to avoid downloading the huge list of updates everytime you install windows 7 important to keep install.wim under 4GB due to UEFI/fat32 limitation)


4.2 Go to Apply press Start and wait to finnish.
When it's done close NTlite and go to iso folder and open sources folder.
Delete boot.wim and setup.exe

5. Open Windows 10.iso with winrar and extract the boot.wim and setup.exe to your sources folder of Windows 7.

6. Copy all contents of iso folder of Windows 7 on a usb drive.

I did every step but it still didn't work. I might try and install it on a platter drive then image it onto the m.2 after. I'll see if that will work. I really despise Windows 10.

Hello dcapper,

How is your system running? I also want to use this Board and this CPU and DDR3.
 
I dont think cloning a hdd to it will work.

The BIOS wont be configured so it detects it. So you can add the drivers to boot from it

The prob isnt windows it's NVME (and worse if you use Win7). .

If you dont do things properly, it wont work

Win7 MAY install on a Kaby Lake system, BUT you wont be able to update it after.

Since MS have or will block them
