BIOS changes when going from Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 to Windows 7

If you’d like to install Windows 7 on your Algiz 10x V2 device from Windows 8.1 or Windows 10, you need to do some changes in BIOS.

Update the BIOS to the latest version before continuing with this guide. You can find the latest BIOS version here.
If you don’t already have a license for Windows 7, you will need to purchase a license before download and installation of the Windows 7 Operating System. Please contact your sales representative.
