I have come to you for help as i can not see a reason behind this.
I recently bought a Lenovo Legion Y520 off of a local shop, with an i5-7300hq and a gtx 1050 . I tried installing windows 7 on it, and did succeed. However, after installation, the usb ports would not work (i installed windows off of a usb port), and the usb hub would not be shown in device manager.
Now, windows 10 works brilliantly, and lenovo only has drivers for windows 10 on their site. Is that it? Can i make windows 7 work on it? Will the w10 drivers work for 7? Is this intentionate so that you move on to newer drivers or just a consequence of windows 7's age?
And why did the usb ports not work after a fresh install of windows 7? Did the drivers on the installer not work? Can it be something else? They do work with the windows 10.
Windows 7 doesn't have USB3 or 3.1 support built-in. You need to slipstream USB drivers into the installer or at least have the INF files handy. These days, USB2 ports are no longer available on the latest laptops. Just install 10 and be done with it. If you wanted 7, you should've gone for a business grade laptop.
