This question already has an answer here:
I just did a clean install of windows 7 professional 64-bit on my skylake build and I was able to install windows 7 fine, I even installed the usb drivers, chipset drivers and the rest of the drivers needed. I installed it from a dvd (it had service pack 1 on it) and had a brand new product key (never used on another pc), even when I go to system properties it says that "windows is activated," but when I plugged my ethernet in and connected to the internet, windows update isn't finding any updates. I open windows update and it has been searching for updates the last 30 minutes now and found nothing, Does anyone knoe what go be wrong because I know the dvd would not have the most recent updates? Yes, my internet works fine I am able to go on google chrome and surf the web.
