The LP was engineered from the ground up for Windows 10. In your case, you might be better using a PICO or Mini ITX that was manufactured a few years ago. Manufacturers of those boards normally kept the drivers for W7.

However, and If you are persistent and need the LP specifically, there are plenty of tutorials on how to create your own device drivers in Cpp. Fairly easy to do but extremely time consuming thank-you-very-much. You will need a registered company, sign a NDA with Intel, so to get access to their SDK and documentation. I'm also seeing source code from AMI in the picture to accommodate the BIOS.

You could outsource all this work to the LP team also, and I'm sure they will help you out, but I'd be very(very) surprised if the quote you'll receive is any near below $20k~25k. And that'd be a pretty good price imo.

Luck with your project bud!

Hi @ GTC , appreciation for your explanation, I also learned much from you, many thanks. :)
Hi @ ender , we also met some problem of using win7 on LattePanda, as GTC said, we have no suitable drivers of win7. What's a pity the programs you used can only run on Windows 7, so may I ask whether you have other plan? :?:

have a nice day,
I would like to use Windows7 and only Orcad 16.0 software on Lattepanda. I do not need any other writing. I just need to install Win7 to meet these requests.

Wish you have a nice day!

Quick FYI for this old thread, it's possible to install those drivers by simply porting them from Linux. ( It's open sourced and has every driver necessary for the LattePanda to function. )

Apart from that, Windows 7 doesn't support UEFI booting but can run in legacy mode with driver-sign checking disabled meaning you don't need a valid signature to load these drivers.

So if you're a skilled developer or even a mediocre C programmer with a fair bit of time on their hands, it's completely do-able for free.
