    Is there anyway to get Intel's K Lake i7 CPU to accept Window7 64bit Premium? I hate Windows 10, but I want to upgrade to the above CPU with a nice MSI MOBO and new DDR4 RAM, but wish to keep Windows 7 64bit.

    Hi, you need to slipstream USB3 drivers with Windows 7 x63 on to a USB memory stick to install Windows 7 as HP computers for example have no USB2 or PS/2 ports. HP provide a utility to do this but you'll need an ISO of Windows 7 x64 SP1.

    Then you'll need to download an unofficial Intel HD Graphics driver if you intend on using the on-board graphics, otherwise the best solution is simply a AMD/NVidia GPU.

    Finally you'll need to trick Windows 7 into receiving Windows Updates as per the post above,
