Microsoft is giving Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users a heads up that if they attempt to download and install any OS updates, they may be blocked if they're running newer hardware. Specifically, Microsoft is no longer interested in updating older versions of Windows on systems with an Intel Kaby Lake or AMD Ryzen CPU inside (same goes for Qualcomm 8996).

Anyone on an affected system who attempts to download Windows update may see an error message, according to a knowledgebase article published last week (KB 4012982).

"Your PC uses a processor that isn't supported on this version of Windows," the error message reads.

So your choice of OS now if your building a PC & has Ryzen/Kaby Lake CPU is nothing but Windows 10.
