    Z590-A CSM is Dissabled in BIOS

    I might be Flogging a Dead Horse But I would like to Try and Install Windows 7 on it.
    But CSM is Disabled in the Bios and I can't figure out How to Enable it.
    The rest of my System is Comprised of i9 11900k CPU, 64gb Ram, 3x250gb 980Pro M.2., 750w PSU, Thermal Take Water Cooler for CPU etc.
    Any Help would be Appreciated.

    I believe you have to disable secure boot and reboot in order to enable CSM.

    You should be able to enable CSM in secure Boot. But Win 7, which the processor may not run, is considered an Other OS for those options.

    Most of these boards came with it enable but with the release of Win 11, it was changed to disabled by default.

    I do not know if the TPM (PTT) is involved in that setting.
