Well it all depends on what it is that you want to do

If it is use XP Mode then you will need one of the High End Chip Set M'Boards something like a Intel P 43 or newer in the 775 Socket type and all of the 1366 Socket Type should work without a problem.

Not sure about any AMD M'Boards as I don't use that CPU Type but any of the newer Chip Set Types shouldn't present any problems provided that you stick to the Higher End of the M'Boards and steer clear of the Budget all in 1 M'Boards.

In Theory, Many Boards less than 8 years old

by TheChas In reply to WHICH MOTHERBOARDS ARE SU ...

Part of why you do not ever see a list of supported motherboards for Windows is that there are just so many different motherboards to keep track of. Microsoft instead defines a minimum CPU clock speed as part of the system requirements.

Based on the posted minimum CPU requirements for Windows 7;

"1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor"

A top end Pentium III system should be able to run Windows 7.

Therefore, any Pentium 4 class and newer Intel based motherboard and all but the oldest socket A AMD motherboards should run Windows 7. So long as you can install the minimum 1 GB of RAM.

The amount of RAM you can install is going to cancel out using more older systems than the CPU speed will.

On a more practical basis, I always double Microsoft's minimum system recommendations. I would not install Windows 7 on any system with less than a 2 GHz CPU and 2 GB of system RAM.

For older motherboards that meet the CPU and RAM capacity requirements you can check with the chip-set manufacture and see if they have drivers for Windows 7 that cover the specific chip-set used.

Also, as Microsoft did not make any major changes to the driver requirements for Windows 7 over Vista, pretty much any hardware that would run under Vista should run under Windows 7.
