I want windows 7 on my new setup but I cannot figure out how to install it on my new Samsung 970 Pro m.2 ssd's. I have the disc for windows 7but I cannot boot from cd/DVD drive at all. BIOS show both ssd but theres nothing on either SSD so it cant boot. How do I install windows 7 on one of my (512gb) ssd via windows 7 disc? I cannot figure this out.

Z390 Taichi p1.60
Intel core i7-8700k
G.Skill ripjaws 2x8gb sticks
Samsung 2x512gb 370 Pro M.2 ssd's (in m.2 slots 1 and 2)

You are in for an absolute nightmare if you are serious about using windows 7 on an unsupported platform.

From AM4 and the intel 200 series onward windows 7 is not supported (this comes from Microsoft).

Honestly, it isn't worth the effort to do and you will also find it tough to get drivers as no one makes any for these unsupported platforms and windows 7.

The z370 chipset was the only 300 series that supported Win 7 and only because of some leaked drivers afaik.
