    Microsoft doesn't support the use of Windows 7 with a Kaby Lake CPU. You may still be able to use a Kaby Lake CPU, but there is no guarantee that it will function correctly, and the system won't receive updates other than security updates. (There is a unsanctioned patch to enable updates: https://www.extremetech.com/computing/248069-unofficial-patch-unblocks-windows-7-8-1-u...aby-lake-ryzen)

    However, some publications have said that such a system could be somewhat unstable, and users may need to buy a discrete video card because Kaby Lake's iGPU won't work correctly, due to a lack of drivers. (The available Windows 7 iGPU drivers are beta software.)

    If someone needs to use Windows 7 for specific software, a VM may be a better way to go.
