Desktop V320-15IAP Windows 7

Hello all,

 

Is it possible to install Windows 7 64 on V320-15IAP desktop?

I can see drivers for Windows 8, but not for Windows 7.

Mouse and keyboard stop working during installation.

 

Regards

Piotr

Starting from Skylike CPU generation, Microsoft/Intel removed EHCI Host support (USB 2.0), leaving only xHCI Host support (USB 3.0). Windows 7 installation media supports only EHCI Host out of box, which cause problems with USB devices. In order to install Windows 7, you would need to prepare a custom installation media, with proper xHCI Host drivers. You may check this article for more information.

Small update. I installed "naked" windows 7 on VM Box (with network driver and teamviewer). I copied it with Clonezilla to my new Lenovo. So I can now access by teamviewer but not by mouse and keyboard. USB does not work.

Lenovo guys, any solution?
I bought it in internet so I can return it within next two weeks. It looks nice but I have to run Windows 7 on it.

 

My processor: Intel Pentium J4205 - Apollo Lake

Mainboard: Lenovo 36c8, Intel Apollo Lake Host Bridge

It looks like Intel does not support Windows7 on that machine.
