Ryzen and Kaby Lake users no longer getting Windows 7/8.1 security updates

With the arrival of this month's Patch Tuesday updates, Microsoft is enforcing its rule of no longer providing support for AMD Ryzen or Intel Kaby Lake users on the Windows 7/8.x platform. I already posted about this before and Microsoft has been warning about this for some time now, but now it's official.

If you run Windows 7 or Windows 8.x on a system with a new processor architecture like the AMD Ryzen or Intel Kaby Lake, you will no longer be able to install the latest security updates. Instead, the operating system will serve a warning message that you're no longer entitled to support.

The solution is to upgrade to Windows 10 and fortunately there are still some loopholes to get Windows 10 for free.
