You bought a laptop with new generation hardware ,Windows 10 and you downgrade to windows 7 ? That's a fail
This CPU(and laptop) doesn't support Windows 7....
Laptop works fine with win7 and every driver exists, just no OEM. From what I read too, it's not that win7 doesn't support the hardware. Just that microsoft has a file that runs a diagnostics test and recognizing kaby lake systems triggers a block in win7 support as in security updates (which is irrelevant in my state since I already did all available updates but the language packs) and that there are already users that work with win7 in the specific model and other win10-oriented ones and some that bypassed the block from microsoft. Therefore, I wouldn't say it's a "fail" to do something logical before you do a detailed search that dismisses problematic issues that might arise and I'm curious how an offtopic answer gets selected as best answer in this forum. You can state your opinion, but no matter what it's not helpful and not answering my question.
Sorry if my anwser upset you , but I don't believe is logical to downgrade from Windows 10(default operating system for your laptop) to 7
But ok its your choice ..
Do you try to download intel drivers too ? ( for Windows 7)
Maybe you will not find a solution , i had a similar problem too but from Windows 7 (default operating system for my laptop) to windows 8.1 and I never found a solution .
I went back to windows 7 and I installed OEM drivers ....
I came here asking for a solution and to get constructive criticism. If you are trying to help be subjective in general.
Now on topic, I found ALL intel drivers and realtek ones. I just can't install the driver for the gpu.
I didn't downgrade. I bought the laptop with linux and I don't have win10 available nor am I willing to spend 100 euros right now.
If I dont' find the driver I will probably go back to linux.
you are my brother in this problem , i'am feeling a looot for you because i have a same problem ....all what you say i tried it and and a same problem and i have a same laptop you have ...........
pleeeeeeeeaaase bro if you find a solution ...tell me
