    You could try this, which would remove the need for Simplix or integrating the driver, or updating. Just install and use.

    Note from mods: Don't link to homebrew ISOs.

    Hello,
    I successfully installed the USB 3/XHCI driver stack from the first post into my Shuttle DS10U barebone (Intel Celeron 4205U ULV processor Whiskey Lake U 8th Generation Intel Core), It works fantastic!
    Very good job done, I cannot thank you enough! :worthy:

    could you ever get Windows 8/10 to act as Bluetooth PAN? , eg, sharing internet from your Desktop over Bluetooth to android tablet, laptop or ipad/phone, much like on MacOS (were it is easier to achieve). It seemed to function on Windows 7, but not on Windows 8/10, but maybe i was just not trying hard enough.

    I recently installed Windows 7 Enterprise in Aorus AX Pro x570S motherboard with Ryzen 5600X processor and NVME 4.0 SSD. I used Simplixed Windows 7 64-bit iso as per the simplix thread. This installation in UFEI mode went well with CSM enabled, secure and Fast Boot disabled. However, I can't browse internet as there is no driver for the Intel I225-V Ethernet controller that the mb has. Can anyone help me to find or modify a driver for the said controller? Thanks in advance.

    Try updating BIOS, then XHCI handoff should work and the OS should boot.

    I'm still in process on setting this test system. i already figured one of the devices is the Intel MEI

    Onboard LAN is a lost cause on this system since it isn't supported by Intel Windows 7 drivers sadly

    What model is it? And hardware ID?
    Realtek is the best for LAN as they have a very good driver team.

    Actually, if you look at this page in this thread, you will find a way to get this working posted by @asdf23451

    I'm curious to see how Windows 7 behaves with the efficiency cores. I see that it views the system as having "two processors". Maybe the scheduler is intelligent enough to not split a load, like a game, among the "two processors".
