Actually, I was wondering the same thing, but for Ryzen 7 2700x.

Can anyone with any am4 processor test to see if Vista is a lost cause for those processors?

As I've posted in a previous thread, it is possible to get Ryzen working on Vista, but drivers are kind of a pain to get working. Windows 7 USB3 drivers do work on Vista, but don't try and slipstream them, because they're not signed for NT 6.0. I would recommend first installing using a PS/2 keyboard and a DVD, if possible.

Hmm, guess I'll need to build my own updated ISO, and try again

Anything I need to know, like what software to use, and what order the updates go in, and such?

You really are going to need a ps2 keyboard to be able to install it. Tried it on my own, but don’t have a ps2 keyboard and usb stuff didn’t work. I think your best bet would be to install it on the hard drive from another computer and then put that hard drive back to your ryzen system.

On the weekend I'll post a tutorial on how to create an up to date image.

I have an idea. Could you try installing Vista with a stock MSDN ISO, without any updates?

Download the oldest chipset drivers for your board, let them extract, then install them using device manager.

Do not install AMD PSP or PCI. ESPECIALLY NOT PSP.

I get a Code 19 error when I try to install the USB Drivers, weird, they were working before.

Solved, thanks for the help on this forum.
