    Why would you need to install windows 7? win 10 does so much more, if you have issue with privacy like i did then you can turn most of the stuff of, then you can turn off all the unecessary win 10 snooping services, then what you cant turn off you can block in your firewall, there are many guides on the net, now my win 10 is just like my old win 7 that was great but with the added bonus of being the latest OS that has full support and regular updates.

    @HFKoKoOo, you can also search on YT for "windows 7 z170"

    @NIKO-IN-IRELAND, he did not ask what is better: Win7 or Win10.
    I am also using Win7 and for me its much better than Win10 (too many small things, i am not going to explain it).

    I am well aware of what he asked but there are no advantages to using win 7 over win 10, only less support for win 7 as we move forward but each to their own, this is to be expected for an OS a few generations back, mainstream support for win 7 ended January 13, 2015 making it less safe to use, anything you dont like in win 10 can be altered, blocked or changed, there are many advatages to win 10, too many small things ;-D , but i am not going to explain it here.

    If your need is casual, you can always use Windows 7 virtual machine on top of Windows 10.
    Use Win7 & Win10 at a same time!

    What CPU are you using? Win 7 is still supported on Skylake
    what kind of drive are you installing on, if it is an NVNE drive you will need NVME drivers either on a USB stick or the latest ASUS tool will add them to your Win 7 and burn it to a USB drive along with the USB 3.0 drivers

    the guide you linked is good and should help get Win 7 installed, do not have any other drives connected when installing an OS, install OS and drivers then connect your other drives
