Best way to know is to try it.

There is one thing is that Windows 7 was iffy about UEFI so I'd skip that idea and use old stodgy BIOS modes.

Also, http://lifehacker.com/5976620/connectify-dispatch-merges-your-available-internet-connections-into-one-fat-super-fast-pipe and other sites notes this is payware.

-> If they don't answer questions, maybe you need to reconsider this purchase?

http://blogs.technet.com/b/askcore/archive/2011/05/31/installing-windows-7-on-uefi-based-computer.aspx goes over the install routine for Windows 7 UEFI but I found that clients absolutely bombed trying to reinstall the OS that way. So for 7 we went back to old BIOS.

The last time I looked at load balancing was

In reply to: Thanks.

For web servers years ago. Today the power is so much more so we don't bother. In fact with virtual private servers we cram many sites onto a cloud system as we can.

Also, for network bonding most folk go with Linux. Here's a link.

There are many others but my point here is that Linux would sidestep the Windows issues. I don't like Windows retail versions because they rarely can run more than a few weeks unattended. Windows Server? A little longer but I want an appliance, not a needy OS.

I came across this.

Apparently Windows does load balancing but it needs to be enable in the registry this post mention that is up to Windows XP.

Then here it looks easy from Windows 7, 8 and 10 by Open Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings
Go to properties of any of your active Internet connection whether it be LAN, WiFi or 3G/4G.
Select Internet Protocol TCP/IP Version 4, Open its properties, then go to advanced.
Uncheck the Automatic Metric and type “15”.
Repeat same steps on other Internet connections you want to combine.
Restart your Computer.

If you guys have any idea about this would be amazing, if not i will have to ask MS.

Also, thanks for mentioning Linux BUT i have 3 windows xp licences and 7 Windows 7 ones and as much secure and easy linux is, i always screwup trying to get things running.
