BIOS settings to switch off if you can
 - secure boot
 - ultra fast boot (fast boot is usually OK)

One other problem is drivers, a lot of board makers don't have drivers for 7.
I can walk on water but stagger on beer bourbon.

I second the drivers issue with back loading to W7.   I had this problem with a Dell Vostro.  So a safe bet is accumulate drivers for the task BEFORE you start, to save you the effort re-loading back to WX.

Another thought for you. I remember reading of a W7 free VM on WX, or small investment to run W7 programs in.

That is a common problem with most browsers, Google push Chrome, Microsoft push Edge and I think some of the Google clones do the same thing. Go to a Microsoft site with Chrome or a clone and you get the Edge popup, go to Google with Edge and you get the Chrome popup.

One other problem is drivers, a lot of board makers don't have drivers for 7.

On my system, win 7 64 runs fine even though it doesn't have the proper RADEON video drivers, just the generic drivers that win 7 supplies.
Everything run fine, I won't be using anything dealing with 3D rendering any time soon. :)

I successfully located audio drivers, wifi, bluetooth, etc just fine.

I'm not always the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I have my moments.  :P

I have the same problem

On a Win 10 box and have try to install win7 my solution was to disable UEFI/GPT.
And use legacy mode.

Now was the problem to find all drivers but i have found it.
