    None of them are CPU-related.

    Pomf.cat is a pomf clone, which is where i hosted the images.

    Yeah in the end everything installed except intel IGPU drivers, 940M drivers work fine, good thing you can change your laptop if you disliked it the first days.
    Everything was driver related but the usual programs i use had problem detecting stuff (3DP Network and 3DP Chip).

    I've seen other laptops/pc's that do not have Windows 7 drivers either, a Windows 10 thing. Not just because you have a Kaby Lake CPU although I have read that Kaby Lake CPU's are not going to be supported with W7

    Dammit, i don't imagine it.
    Does this means that any Kabylake-powered laptop with hybrid Intel+Nvidia graphics will be unable to install both drivers?

    I-I mean, Nvidia driver have a "prerequisite" as Intel driver, installed in first order.

    If you buy the new hardware, you're forced to swallow windows 10. A bitter pill I will not swallow, especially if I don't need it.

    For Kaby Lake processor with HD Graphics 630 on Windows 7 x64 you can try this driver:

    I can't post links so Google for "21.20.16.4526" and download from station-drivers dot com
    Please do let us know if these video drivers work properly and games run without crashing. Thanks :clap:
