Install Windows 7 on ThinkPad x270

2018-04-18, 20:51 PM

I need some help. My company is currently still running Windows 7, and we're unable to push it out via SCCM to the new ThinkPad x270s. However, we can install Windows 10 but have not migrated yet. Any thoughts?

There were similar topics on SCCM's reddit. Unfortunately, starting from Kaby Lake CPU generation Windows 7 is no longer supported. Many people was trying to make it work, but unfortunatelly without much of success.

It all depends on the processor in the X270. We shipped these with either the 6th Gen Skylake processor or the 7th Gen Kaby Lake processor. The Model Type for the Skylake starts with 20K5 or 20K6. If you X270 MTM does not start with either of those then you have a Kaby Lake processor and will not be able to install Win 7 on it.
