Installing Windows 7 on a New PC

Product Name: Business PC
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I’m planning on loading Windows 7 on my new Business PC are there any settings I need to change? What do I need to know?

Re: Installing Windows 7 on a New PC

Hey Bill,

 

Windows 7 can be installed on some of the newer business PCs. There are some requirements and settings you should be aware of.

  • First, you cannot install Windows 7 on a computer with a 7th generation processor.
  • You'll need to either change the TPM version on the PC or install a hotfix from Microsoft.
  • You must use legacy mode (non-UEFI) in the BIOS.
  • You need your own copy of Windows 7 and a license for Windows 10 Professional.

You can find steps and more information at http://www.hp.com/support/Windows7and10TPMFAQ

 

Thanks,
Wes
