Windows 7 support for Intel Kaby lake and Skylake CPUs

    Question

  • Hi All,

    I would like to know more about Windows 7 support for the Intel Kaby lake/Skylake CPUs. What will happen when I deploy windows 7 OS onto a new laptop/desktop with that CPU?

    My understanding is that one of the follow two scenarios will occur.

    1)Windows updates will be downloaded and installed as per normal but they won't be tested for that platform/OS combination. So MS won't provide any support if the behavior of some software changes.

    2)There might be some logic built into the updates so that when it detects windows 7 with kaby/skylake, the updates will simply not be installed.

    Also, to add to the above - Will deploying the patches via SCCM/WSUS influence the above behavior?

    I have already conducted some research, but couldn't get to the answer.

    Regards,

    Gerhard
