Windows 7 has been out of support for a year. Windows update has a block on it to stop Ryzen and most Intel CPUs from the 6th and later gens connecting.

That's if it works, you'll likely find no USB devices work even if you manage to coax it on.

Just go to Windows 10...

you are not going to get anywhere with windows 7 on new hardware, so you will either have to bite the bullet and move to windows 10 or stay in the past with only older hardware as your option. windows 10 isnt all that different to 7/8 really, new features to an extent, but overall they are similar, mean its not like going from vista to windows 7 or rather xp to win 7.

as for the question itself, what is your budget and as of the B450 boards under £80 will do depending on what you want from it.
