Windows 10 is a huge step up from Windows 8 and is nearly flawless other than causing terrible issues with my ASUS laptop (which is a beastly workstation, if a few years old i7 system) until I deleted OEM driver bullshit and let Windows drop in what it preferred. Also, had issues with my audio interface but those drivers are now solid as well.

Lesson learned: two months was not enough to avoid early adopter issues.

e. have it on three different personal computers/workstations, several lab computers are still on 7 or 8 for software needs/insufficient give-a-fuck

Microsoft is blocking Windows 7 and 8 updates for some (newer) processors)

Microsoft is blocking Windows 7 and 8 updates on Intel's seventh generation Core i3, i5 and i7 (Kaby Lake), AMD's Ryzen (Bristol Ridge) and Qualcomm's 8996 processors. Devices powered by these processors must update to Windows 10 in order to receive updates from Microsoft.

The problem will manifest only when you try to run Windows Update, when you'll see an error message: "Windows could not search for new updates" and "Code 80240037 Windows Update encountered an unknown error".

I just ran an update on my W7/Core i5 box. Wasn't blocked. Downloaded and installed normally.

Ok. Dunno offhand. I'm just happy it's not blocked.

Good to know.  I have a few extra Win 7 Pro licenses and I'll not install them on any new 7xxx processors.

I wonder if you can change the CPU code entry for your processor?  I know that if you unlock cores the software will change the processor name to the new core configuration (i.e. an AMD X2 will change to the X3 or X4 name on CPU ID if those cores are unlocked

you can install win 7 on them, just need to get the updates manally

for drivers you should never rely on m$ to get the correct or latest ones anyway

use this

it can grab updates and install them bypassing windows update
