    As I recall, about a year ago Bootcamp no longer supports Windows 7. Is it still possible to install Windows 7 on the latest MacBook Pro 2017?

    If you don’t care much about Mac OS X then yes. If you do, well, idk how to do it. :(

    Can't you use VMware or Virtual Box? Or even Parallels.

    I went into licensing issues when I switched back and forth between running CAD software under VMware and Bootcamp. Besides, I prefer to use full power.

    I am pretty sure that Microsoft does not support and has blocked updates for Kaby Lake and AMD Ryzen processors for Windows 7 and 8.1. Officially anyway.

    This has nothing to do with whether its possible to install Win 7 on a MBP 2017? Also, there are numberous patches which can undo this unlawful and disgusting act of Microcrap.
