Ryzen 5 3600, Windows 7 question

So I know my Ryzen 5 3600 can not do Windows 7. But does that mean it simply can't be installed on this system? What if I already HAVE it installed on a drive? I have the C drive with Windows 7 I was dual booting to in my last build. If I plug it into my new build with my B450 Tomahawk and the Ryzen 5, will it just not boot? Or is it simply installing Windows 7 on a Ryzen 5 that doesn't work?
 
Thanks!

You can install it but there are not drivers for the board. So basically sound, internet, usb, pcie devices (like your gpu),... may not function or be stuck in a very basic mode.

There's drivers for W7 right on the motherboard website.

Ohhh... it's a driver issue. Ok. So then there's not really anything that can be done then.

My bad that's unexpected.

Yeah that is really weird. Because as far as I knew that wasn't possible. Could they have added that recently?

The MSI Tomahawk Windows 7 drivers only support Summit, Bristol, and Pinnacle ridge cpu's. The 3600 is a Mattise Cpu. You will need to use Windows 10 for the 3600, or if you really want windows 7 , you will have to downgrade the cpu to a 2700x or lower.

Case: Thermaltake Core X-5.CPU:  AMD Ryzen9 5950x . CPU Cooler: Noctua DH-15 Chromax Black. Motherboard: MSI Tomahawk X570. Memory: 32 gigs of DDR4 3600 G-Skill “B” die. Timings @ 14-15-15-15-35.Graphics = Sapphire 6900XT. Main Drive = Sabrent Rocket Plus 4, m.2. Storage Drive = 8 tb Seagate Barracuda. PSU = EVGA SuperNova 850 watt. OS: Windows 10 Professional 64. Monitor: AOC AGON AG322QCX 31.5" Curved screen. 2560x1440 @ 144 mhz. Sound System: Logitech Z-5300 5.1 (bought new by me in 2003). Mouse: Razr. Keyboard: Corsair Strafe Blue led.

I don't see that at the web site. Can you link this information please?

USB, wifi and Sata drivers (for example) do not rely on a cpu that's installed fyi.  Click the link I've provided for clarity.

It'll work fine. 

The motherboard drivers are for Sata, USB, and chipset ect. Not discriminate to Cpu at all.

https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/B450-TOMAHAWK#down-driver&Win7 64   click on the chipset drivers, they don't work for Mattise.

It says this in specs unfortunately...

"To support Windows® 7 64-bit, you must install an AMD Pinnacle Ridge & Summit Ridge CPU. "

Shame. Well, for me. And I almost bought the 2700x.

There is an unofficial version of windows 7 ryzen patched in the scene that fully supports ryzen, but we cant post nothing here about it.

OK well my team mates at Warp9 use W7 for overclocking these chips competitively. 

 

So I have no idea what you guys mean it won't work.

 

Here is example of one of my team mates running W7 with a 3600x.
