    I'm trying to install Win 7 onto my M.2 but can't get it to install because I first need to install the M.2 driver. So I extracted the the driver with WIX and the issue is the drivers that I burned onto a CD don't show up when I pick load driver during the install.
    How are you guys managing this?

    It's 3 simple dism commands:
    Mount WIM:
    Code:
    dism.exe /Mount-WIM /WimFile:"x:\wim\install.wim" /index:1 /MountDir:"y:\mount"
    
    Integrate the drivers:
    Code:
    dism.exe /image:"y:\mount" /Add-Driver /driver:"z:\W7_NVMe_Drivers\x64" /recurse
    
    
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.16299.15
    
    Image Version: 6.1.7601.17514

    ?????? You don't have a WIM image of windows? What do you think windows is installed from?

    The iso/usb/dvd you are using to install windows contains an install.wim (iso:\sources).

    i suppose that you bought machine with win7 pro preinstalled on it and you want to do a clean install and waiting for the activation to be done automatically. If it's the case, there is good chance of making this happen.
    If you still have recovery partition, you won't need to reinstall windows manually as you can boot the machine and press F11 key to proceed to factory restore, this keybord usually allows to do factory restore on HP machine, by doing this procedure, you will able to restore your machine to the original state that means that you will have your machine restored as it was when you bought it.
    if you removed the recovery partition so a clean install will be necessary and installing win7 pro OEM version will logically allow the automatic activation but i don't have any oem version to send you unfortunately, maybe someone here will send it to you but instead you can simply install any windows 7 version and use DAZ activator and you will be fine. the activation with DAZ is done permanently. You will find it here.

    On a system with a valid slic you can simply insert the oem:slp key and the needed certificate (manually, by installing using the MRP $OEM$ folder or after clean install with DAZ WL).

    On systems with a valid slic, Windows Loader will only insert the oem:slp key and certificate, and it will not install the loader part.

    I was just trying to clarify what DAZ' WL is capable of:

    It actually is an OEM system activator, on systems with a valid slic.
    Only when there is no valid slic inside the bios, it installs the Loader part, it emulates an OEM bios-slic on which the oem:slp and certificate can activate windows.
