    Its a shame that Microsoft is making life harder for those users who want to still continue to use Windows 7 on newer hardware. Since there are Windows 7 drivers available for the Intel Kaby Lake and Ryzen CPU's, Microsoft is just being stubborn with forcing everyone to use Windows 10.

    Luckily there is a workaround to continue to use Windows 7 on the newer CPU's but this policy towards Windows 7 just shows that Microsoft does not care about its users.

    So much for my basic right. Freedom of Choice. So in other words MS can dictate what I have to use. Didn't we get rid of some one like that. I believe his name was Adolf Hitler. I had Win 10 Pro free upgrade installed in one of my laptops. It works great except for the fact that no matter what fix I try. It will no longer install the latest updates. When MS gets it's act together. Then I'll reinstall that drive. The sad fact is I like Win 10.

    Microsoft (and some other tech companies) has become a monopoly. The public needs some serious anti-trust measures brought against big-tech.

    I think that Microsoft went too far with this, and should reconsider the whole approach.
