I haven’t used windows 7 on my personal systems since The Second release of windows 10, about 3-4 years ago, we are almost up to Release number 5, in October.
All of my old equipment works fine, with no driver issues, they all have SSD, save my server, and it’s a 7200 rpm 2.5 inch that is about half an SSD’s performance.
Pro tip for windows 10, Don’t Ever use windows 7 drivers, ever!
Pro tip 2, If your running AMD or Intel, make sure you have your chipset drivers are fully updated, these are for your mother board and system interconnects.
Pro tip 3, Always update, if you setup your updates over night, and your system crashes out on an update it will be back at login in the morning(SSD is needed), after uploading what crashed it to Microsoft, rinse and repeat until your windows get the updates. My Server recently some issue with the monthly update, it had to install it 3 times but as these update are continuous, and not static 3rd time it installed with out an issue.
So there you have it. My best advise as an IT Professional and windows 10.
Get a SSD, get the drivers from AMD, Intel for your chipset/motherboard, and you windows 10 experience will greatly improve.
