Thank you for contacting us, I was reading your thread and I noticed that you have an Operating System compatibility questions, I will be more than glad to provide you with the information requested.
Let me inform you that the Kaby Lake or 7th generation processors are natively compatible with Windows 10* (64-bit only), now please be aware that the processor is OS independent, that means that you will be able to install and run another Operating System, but you will have software limitations, for example you will not be able to get drivers or updates for an Operating System that is not supported for the unit.
You can check the Operating System compatibility based on the embedded graphics in the following link:

I hope this information be useful for you.
