IMPORTANT - 7th Gen Intel and AMD CPU's will support Windows 10 ONLY

Intel has recently announced the new 7th Gen Core platform nicknamed Kaby Lake. Going forward from Kaby Lake the only OS that will be supported is Windows 10. If you have a customer that buys Kaby Lake hardware and tries to load Windows 7, IT WILL NOT WORK.

Kaby Lake CPUs will still drop into the current LGA1151 socket motherboards, but newer LGA1151 boards will use a new 200 series chipset with additional features. If a customer has a current board with a 6th Gen CPU and Windows 7, then decides to upgrade the CPU to a Gen 7 the OS will not boot. 

The upcoming Lenovo ThinkPad E570 is Kaby Lake; no downgrades to Windows 7. 

AMD's new "Zen" line of processors and chipsets are the same - Windows 10 ONLY.
