    Windows 10 should be your OS of choice,
    I would imagine that you could use the EZ installer from previous boards to install USB 3.0 drivers and NVME drivers into your Win 7 OS, I can't imagine it not working although there will be no drivers available and Microsoft will prevent updates, etc.

    Microsoft ended mainstream support for Windows 7 on January 13, 2015. I'm not surprised if new hardware slowly begins not working.

    Tried that, didn't work. Somehow the USB controller driver was blocked at install. Mouse and keyboard work in bios but not beyond that.

    And yet Newegg still sells Windows 7 Professional OEM DVD brand new with license.

    Sure, but Newegg and Microsoft do not claim that Windows 7 support the Z390 chipset which makes sense as the hardware was released after support stopped.
    Also, should probably be noted that Maxumus XI Hero only lists Windows 10 as supported OS in the manual: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/RO...lpDesk_Manual/

    Newegg wouldn't claim support for any products. They are sellers and do not provide tech support. As I recall z370 had this issue as well but Asus and others made an EZ Installer. I guess Asus is unwilling or unable to let it work. I saw in a forum someone with an MSI motherboard got it loaded using their ez installer with an ODD. I'll investigate. I just can't see how z370 is allowed but z390 is not being that they are almost identical in every way. It's a shame since people unwilling to abandon Win 7 will not be able to use any of these motherboards.

    I have also used a pcie slot USB adapter and connected to the on board USB 2.0 header at the bottom of the motherboard to connect keyboard and mouse to install and use Win 7 before

    I tried that as well, didn't work at all. Z370 injured Windows 7 installs, it appears Z390 put a stake through it's heart.

    I have a Z390 board, soon as I get my hands on a CPU I'll give it a try and report back, not that I'll have a different outcome, I'm just stubborn that way
