    I mistakenly bought an Asus Prime H370M-PLUS board as a platform for a new Windows 7 installation.

    (The machine will be used by an elderly person who has tried W10 and can't handle it, so W7 is a must)

    By the time I realized that this board has no native support for W7 it was too late to return it.

    I understand that it might be possible to integrate the correct drivers into my W7 Ultimate 64bit ISO, but this is beyond my capabilities. However, if it is possible to do this, I'm prepared to pay for the work.

    My only alternative is to buy another W7-compatible board, that will also accept the Intel Coffee Lake i5 8400 CPU and 2 x 16GB DD4-2666MHZ ram that were part of the original purchase.

    Advice would be appreciated.
