WIN 10 and Cougar
This is likely common knowledge here, I just found out that onboard graphics with the i7 7700k chip will ONLY work with Windows 10. There are other artificial limitations that Intel has put on this architecture to force folks into using it, such as dx12, but it presents me with a problem.
I had planned to roll back to Win 7, or stay with Win 8 because of the difficulties I have always had (after xp) to get my Cougar properly recognized by them. I know all of the procedures, throttle disc, trigger in, etc, but even with Win 7 and 8 the ONLY way I could get the Cougar to be seen ( the in/out ) was to plug it into an old USB 1 hub. USB ports, hub or mainboard would NOT work, just the ol’ hub. Well it’s busted now and I’m at a loss for what to do.
btw, once it was recognized I could plug it into any port I wanted and it worked fine, the problem was always the initial install. Anyone else face this issue and figure out a way around it?
