Installing Windows 7 on a New Notebook

HP Recommended
Business Notebook
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

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

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

If you have an Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3168 WiFi adapter, you may not be able to use it if there is no working Wireless Button Driver for Windows 7 for your model.

 

Using a USB WiFi adapter is the current workaround.

Replacing with a different PCIe adapter might also be possible but I have not investigated that option further. There might be complications related e.g. to the antennae, antenna connectors etc.

People are using their precious remaining lifetime to try and help, so it is common courtesy to come back and tell what the solution eventually was even if you found it elsewhere. It is for the benefit of everyone.
