i downgraded my laptop from windows 10 to windows 8.1
because i windows 10 felt slow even though im on the latest update
so i downgraded to windows 8.1 because it feels faster than windows 10
It has been the case for four years that only WIndows 10 is supported on 7th gen and later processors.
No, you cannot install the drivers on Windows 8.1.
And Windows 8.1 is NOT faster than Windows 10. That's nothing but wishful thinking.
