    How did you install it and how did you add ' USB 3 pilotes' ?

    Install linux and then create virtual machine with installed windows 7.

    I downloaded long time ago an iso with USB3 drivers included.
    Installation works well. But when windows boots ... it freeze just during logo and pixels appear.
    Any idea ?

    No I don't want it in a virtual machine. This computer is my daily for me and my GF who isn't ITgirl

    use a bootable live cd and check the logs? as for i know modern pc/laptops are no longer compatible with windows 7 in other means you were not supposed to be able to install windows 7 on it. i faced same issues with a new lenovo.

    How about not trying to cripple a modern machine with software, which is (even though intentionally) outdated?
    You're saying you liked a post of mine. I really don't know which one, but I don't really do the "buy a brand new PC in 2020 and struggle installing windows 7 on it" thing. Go read up in the windows 10 section.

    Is that iso an original latest untouched copy ? Because if it isnt noone can advise you because they dont know whats been done with it .

    A common problem is / was that win 7 often hasnt got the newer drivers in it for newer computers . People then got themselves a win 10 version and then replaced the instal.wim with the install.wim from win 7 and used that . Theres a script / some software in the win 7 section that does that for you ---- > https://forums.mydigitallife.net/th...-kabylake-coffelake-ryzen-threadripper.76335/

    Hello ! Thank you for your help.
    I downloaded untouched W7 copy and then try to instal and I had problem with USB3.0 so I integrated USB3.0 pilotes on it.

    Now I read forum and it seems i have UEFI 3.0 version with no CSM.
    So I need graphics drivers for my UHD620.

    I'm following this tutorial because autor say you don't need CSM activated.

    You need to post that in the other thread :)


    If i needed to install drivers i would intigrate them into the win 7 installer before i install .

    Did you try the win 7 install.wim in a win 10 installer ? ...... because it already has newer drivers in it .

    Hello I passed all my night on it and I succeded to install W7 with an W10 installer !

    BUT I still have a problem of driver for my graphics card.

    I'm not sur to have the good drivers. I have UHD620 intel graphics card and MX250.

    Will W7 use both ? How to do ? UHD620 have no w7 pilots and MX250 has ...

    How to extract drivers from .exe ? Nvidia give only .exe and not .cat and .inf ...
