Hi all,

 

I would like to use Windows 7 on my 905p. Unfortunately, the link in this manual (https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27396/Client-NVMe-Microsoft-Windows-Drivers-for-Intel-SSDs?v=t) for " Client NVMe Microsoft Windows Drivers for Intel® SSDs" does not work.

 

Any help is appreciated.

Hello, Umea.

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel Community Support forums.

 

Official support for Windows 7 has been discontinued by Microsoft and drivers are no longer being developed for it.

 

The Intel NVMe driver is also being discontinued (EOL - End Of Life) and will not be available as of Feb 6th 2023; it is encouraged to work with the default drivers included with Windows (inbox). The link to the download page still works, but the download is no longer there.

 

Depending on your platform, I would recommend checking also with the manufacturer of the desktop/laptop/motherboard to confirm support for Windows 7 and alternatively check with Microsoft or their community if there are any other steps you can take regarding this operating system.

 

I will close the thread on February 23rd if there are no other questions or comments.

 

Regards,
