    There are no Win7 USB drivers for Z390.
    Intel has never supported Z390 on Win7, and older drivers (Z270/Z370) are not compatible.

    I started seeing that same message recently, but I couldn't figure out what was causing it.
    But now that you mention it, I believe the errors appeared around the time I updated the BIOS. :(

    That's an interesting discovery. What CPU are you using?
    With the new microcode, your CPU can't be overclocked at all, or just your maximum OC is lower than before?

    Everything I've seen says you'd need Coffee Lake and a CNVi-enabled chipset (Z390/H370/B360/H310). It's not likely to work on your Z370 motherboard.
