Installing Windows 7 on a New Notebook

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

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

 

Thanks 

Bill

Re: Installing Windows 7 on a New Notebook

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.

Thanks,
Wes

When your system has a NVMe drive, you need to follow the steps in the following document.
