welp, my pc (i7-3770k, gtx670 4gb, Win7) caught fire due to faulty house wiring. not a biggy as i'd planned on major upgrades soon anyway. so i'm pricing 1080ti and i7-7700k ect, when i read about how Oldrim can't use more than 4gb on win10. makes that 11gb 1080 seem silly. again i think no biggy, as i'll just install Win7 on the 7700k. BUT apparently it's a huuuge pita to put win7 on kaby lake. it's not supported, needs a dual boot (i have no idea how to do this) or separate ssds, and even then drivers don't work, no USB ect.
so i figure what w/ all the incredibly miraculous things around like Memory Patch, Crash Fixes, ENBoost ect, that there's gotta be something to help with this problem?? if dual boot or separate drives is the only way to get Windows 7 on a Kaby Lake, are there any step by step tutorials on doing that?
if i can't find a fix, i think i'll have to just buy the last CPU that allows Windows 7 installation (Skylake?), because it's important to me that skyrim use the vram that i have. i had just wanted to future proof a bit, and maybe stream some 4k Netflix on the Kaby, but i'll get the 6700k if need be
