Otherwise, it may be time to update the manual (15.6 Supported Platforms) where it says PostgreSQL "can be expected to work on these operating systems: [...] Windows (Win2000 SP4 and later), [...]". Perhaps we could add "except Windows before 7 SP1/2008R2 SP1 when running in x64 mode on Intel CPUs introduced after May 2013 (Haswell and later)"?
Wouldn't the fix be for users to upgrade their service packs?
Windows 2008 and 2008R2 are entirely different things: 2008 is the server sibling of Vista (internal version 6.0), 2008R2 is that of Windows 7 (6.1). There is no version of 2008 that supports AVX2.
