April 11, 2017

NOTICE! -- UIU Classic users only! --

UIU Classic product v4.9.6.0 (or newer) is required to utilize UIU Driver Database versions newer than DB-17-01-26!


WARNING! -- Windows 7/8/8.1 on Kaby Lake Intel Processors! --

Intel's seventh generation Core processors, the Kaby Lake series (I7-7xxx, I5-7xxx CPU description = Kaby Lake), will only have Windows 10 operating system support! There will be no legacy operating system support (Windows 7 or Windows 8.1) for Kaby Lake equipped systems.

Big Bang has tested the deployment of Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 on several machines equipped with the Intel 7th Generation core processors and has found that, in our testing cases, all operating systems successfully deployed to those machines, (for which their architecture was applicable). Nothwithstanding, Big Bang expects a decrease in or elimination of driver production/offering for non-Windows 10 operating systems. Big Bang will take all reasonable measures to supply drivers for the affected hardware on non-compliant opertaing systems.
