    Hello!
    First of all, my setup:
    TUF gaming B550-Plus (Bios v2423, up to date)
    Ryzen 9 5900x
    NVidia GEFORCE RTX 3060 TI
    Windows 7 64bit on CSM/BIOS


    After some hardships, I was able to finally complete windows 7 installation.
    But to do that, I needed to disable "HD Audio Controller" in BIOS, as it caused a freeze on "Starting Windows" screen.
    This means that I can't use my board's integrated audio.

    Strangely, I also noticed that I could sometimes boot with HD Audio Controller enabled, seems a bit random.

    Being a complete beginner at this, i'm in need of some help to solve this issue, if there is way.


    Also, I'm sorry for my bad english, this isn't my first language.

    If Windows 7 is on such a system, then maybe you're revealing the big secret to which audio driver have installed there at all?

    So after rebooting several times I could start Windows with HD Audio Controller enabled, checking in device Manager show:
    -High Definition Audio Device
    -version: 6.1.7601.24519
    -Provider Microsoft

    Audio codec is Realtek S1200A.

    As Asus doesn't provide win7 drivers for my Board, I tried to install generics audio drivers from Realtek, but couldn't make it recognise the hardware (well I am a noob so I certainly have done something wrong here)

    I have used Simplix last release to update my computer after installation, so it should be good.

    Also noob question: I would have liked to uninstall High Definition Audio Device driver to make it something like "Unknow device" and then check manually with what I have downloaded. But the device disappear completly, and then I check for new hardware, it install drivers automatically. Is there a way to do something here?

    I also found out that dualbooting made it possible to boot with HD Audio enabled...

    Post your XHCI device ID,I can offer the fix xhci driver. ASUS AM4 boards have bugs on the porting xhci driver. The only way is the xhci controller from cpu use AMD 1.0.0.13 mod driver. xhci controller from PCH use porting driver.

    During driver installation, I got a BSOD:
    "Technical information:
    *** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xFFFFFFFFC0000005, 0xFFFFF8800AED36FB, 0xFFFFF88003BA85A8
    xFFFFF88003BA7E10)

    *** RTKVHD64.sys - Address FFFFF8800AED36FB base at FFFFF8800AED00000, DateStart
    60f52943"

    After rebooting I got a BSOD again, starting with last good specs get me frozen on "Starting WIndows".
    Rebooting in Safe Mode works (stuck a little bit on \Drivers\avdevprot.sys during loading).
    Checking Device manager shows that "High Definition Audio Device" uses driver from Realtek now (v. 6.0.9205.1).
    Checking Driver Details shows a bunch of files including 15 files from \Realtek\Audio\HDA\

    In case I've done something wrong with installation, this is what I've done:
    -Right click on "High Definition Audio Device", Update Driver Software,
    -Browse my computer for driver software,
    -Browse...
    -Select Realtek-FORCED-710x64-9205_HDA0-drp folder (extracted of course)



    Not sure if it's the right id, but there you go:
    PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_1487&SUBSYS_87971043&REV_00\4&231a312e&0&0441
    From "Parent" property

    I found a new way to solve this.
    Do not to install the Nvidia HDMI Sound driver.
    Then it will be working well.
