>>52507146 Skylake does NOT intentionally prevent the installation of anything. The only thing that's changed is the dropping of native USB2 support. Old Windows installers apparently can't handle USB3.
You can still install Win7 from optical disk or network boot, as long as you have a non-USB keyboard lying around.
Dropping support for obsolete legacy shit (USB2) is a good thing.
>>52507839 >Dropped the must used peripheral standard on the planet is a good thing. Is this bait? I mean a USB3 controller is natively backwards compatible with USB2. The same way USB2 is backwards compatible with USB1.X The processor would have to go out of its way to make USB2 not work.
>>52508871 USB contoller is backwards compatible but chipset drivers in w7 installer is not forwards compatible. You have to load compatible XHCI drivers during the install if you want to install from/to a usb drive.
>>52509403 That would be an issue for me actually. For some reason any optical drives that I install, do not work as should 80% of the time if they are even recognized by the computer itself to begin with. Yes there are several alternatives but usb is so damn fast and convenient.
>>52509794 If you have decent and at somewhat recent hardware, you'll see the difference is not just something simple as a gain of x%, it's a gain in brute performance, everything gets harder, better, faster, stronger.
