Meaning if users want to take advantage of the OS they will have to update it to the latest version of Windows 10.
Microsoft has announced that it will no longer support the original version of Windows 10, however, that does not mean your Windows has become useless if you are still using the original build. To take full advantage of the OS all you have to do is update your OS to the latest version as unlike the previous versions of Windows, Windows 10 is designed as a service.
Going forward, original build Windows 10 users will now have to update their OS to the latest version within 60 days so that they can continue receiving critical updates and security fixes. 1507 is the original build of Windows 10 whose support is being dropped. If you have not installed the Anniversary or Creators updates then quality and security updates will come to a stop.
Speaking of updates for Windows OS, 7 and 8 versions of Microsoft Windows do not support Kaby Lake and Ryzen CPUs officially as Microsoft is blocking updates for these CPUs. Users who are trying to access Windows 7/8.1 updates with a system with unsupported hardware are shown the following error.
Your PC uses a processor that is designed for the latest version of Windows. Because the processor is not supported together with the Windows version you are currently using, your system will miss important security updates. Please select the ‘Learn More’ link to address the situation.
However, there are plenty of users who utilize Windows 7 and 8 and if you want to use Intel Kaby Lake or AMD Ryzen CPUs then you are being forced to use Windows 10 as your operating system but that is no longer the case. One of the users found a way to patch this issue with the latest release of Windows updates.
