Hi,
It should be easy to install win-7 on skylake I have 7 pro on skylake x smile.gif
Of course fast and secure boot needs to be disabled
Also OS Type needs to be as Other OS and CMS needs to be Enabled for legacy os to be installed asus is activated by default

In my bios/ advanced/ USB I have a usb keyboard and mouse simulator function that will enable the mouse and keyboard to work during the normal 7 installer
Once I got to my desktop I could install all the drivers from the x299 dvd

Depending on which mother board you have
ASUS makes it easy to create the media if you have a iso or win-7 dvd it will create a All versions 7 ISO out of it smile.gif
