Microsoft is now blocking Windows 7 and 8.1 updates on Ryzen and Kaby Lake systems

Microsoft is now blocking Windows 7 and 8.1 updates on Ryzen, Bristol Ridge and Kaby Lake based systems, stating that the hardware is "unsupported".



Read more on Microsoft's refusal to install updates on Windows 7 and 8.1 with Ryzen and Kaby Lake CPUs.

I would of thought they'd be in a legal requirement for security updates, just not updates for the chipset or optimisations

security flaws are mandatory but everything else can be blocked.

That's what i thought, so there'd probably be more chance of stability issues rather than security

I'd expect people who really do still want to run Windows 7 on this new hardware to install from a disc image with all the updates already installed and enabled.

They are forcing W10 hard. You could use W7/8.1 but there is still much potential to be gained from Ryzen via optimizations witch won't come to older OS.

Makes sense to me. The hardware wasn't even out when they stopped shipping 7 and 8.1 so why would they be obligated to support it? It's a waste of resources (for MS) and no doubt some bright spark would try to sue them if they found a security flaw despite not updating to the current OS. I thought 7 was EOL anyway?

7 hit end of mainstream support in January 2015 but will still get "extended support" until January 2020.

Why?

If I asked everyone using windows 7 of their opinion on MS no longer supporting WinXP they would say it that it was fine since they have moved on. But now win7 isnt supported everyone is making a fuss since they are still using it and refuse to move on to the next os.
