    Will the Atom x5-z8350 run Windows 7 pro 64 bit


      I have a Z83 Mini PC that I want to run an older single application on but it is not compatible with Win 10 so I would like to down grade to Win 7 pro 64 bit. Wil the Atom x5-z850 run it. I keep getting an Intel SD Host Controller Driver error.

          Hello JohnStone,
          Thank you for contacting the Intel community.
          In this case, you could install Windows® 7 with this processor but you will need to use the Windows® graphics driver because there are no drivers available for the graphics on this and Windows® 7.
          Also, I suggest you to contact your Mini PC manufacturer and ask them if the system supports Windows® 7 or if you will be able to install it because this also can be a limitation from your computer manufacturer that will allow the installation of Windows® 10 only.
          You computer manufacture may alter the features and specifications and for that reason they will give you better information about it.
          You can provide me with your system model and I can try to look at their website to find out more information.
          Best regards,
          Ivan U.
