It is like this.

Skylake chipsets support only USB 3.0 and that there is no backward compatibility.
There is no way I can install Windows XP or Windows 7 on a skylake computer.

Also that USB 3.0 will not recognize my old devices like my printer at Windows 10.
A USB 2.0 will be able to detect it on my Laptop at USB 2.0

But I have an Idea.
There are USB 2.0 PCI extension cards for sale and that I think I can use those.

Here is my questions

Can a USB 2.0 PCI extension card be used to:
1.) Install Windows XP or Windows 7 on a Skylake Computer.
2.) Detect my Printer that only works at USB 2.0

3.) Can the PCI extension work without drivers.

Get a new printer, And Windows XP and 7 are so far gone and dated they really aren't for current usage(XP entirely, 7 is on it's way out), XP on a skylake? Just no man, Just no

@twocables HELP

you wont be able to run xp or 7 properly or at all, stated by Intel. you need Win 10 and you may have to run compatiblity mode for the printer, as far as the USB 2.0's, same thing lol
