LP Alpha + Windows Seven

Just for fun, I decided to try and install Windows Seven on an Alpha 864s.
While it is possible, there's the usual issue of no Win7 drivers for important stuff.

No drivers for Intel UHD Graphics 615. You can continue to use the generic MS drivers out to 1920 x 1080
Drivers are installed for the SD Card controller but they don't function (Code 10)
eMMC unknown. I have it disabled in UEFi to prevent possibly damaging the Win10 fs
Leonardo drivers won't install. This might be an issue due to a reported bug with the Win7 drivers and USB3

I suspect that NVMe can be enabled using the Win7 NVMe hotfixes and drivers for certain modules. I didn't try because the slot is in use for the SATA.

Unless you really need Win7 and can do without the Gfx drivers, it's probably not worth the pain. Attachments LatteSeven.png LatteSeven.png (102.33 KiB) Viewed 146 times
