    D865GBF and windows7

    daisenberg

      Hello: I have a desktop board D865GBF and seen it's already discontinued and therefore there'll be no drivers for windows 7.
      The question is, can I install anyway Windows 7? or I'm exposed to problems of compatibility, performance, malfunction, etc?
      If the answer is the recommendation to change it, Can you recommend me for what I have to change and if I will have to change the memory and processor as well?

       

       

      Following is the report of my system: Many thanks in advance.
