    See some references to DISM, Are you guys using the W7 native version of DISM or the W8 version from the ADK? I have been looking for the W8 version to install on W7.

    You have to download the 8.1 ADK, and install the deployment tools to get the 8.1 DISM on Windows 7. It's a big download just for a 54MB component, but it's all I know of, unless you find a way to get MSMG Toolkit DISM working standalone.

    Thanks for reply. I have not been able to find the W8.1 ADK. I have found downloads for the wrapper, a small file that offers to allow a download of the full package, but Microsoft seems to have discontinued the download. Bless their mercenary hearts.

    I'll keep looking because the W8.1 version has more functionality than the W7 version. May be able to find it somewhere on FTP. Wayback machine only has the wrapper. Don't know if the W10 version will work on W7 but even that seems gone since Microsoft are now offering the ADK for W11.

    BTW...the W10 version of windbg works fine on W7, just don't want to take a chance on messing my system using W10 DISM. Anyone know for sure if it works?

    2 processors may suggest that Windows 7 sees P-cores and E-Cores as two different NUMA nodes.

    If you take a Windows 10 LTSC installation ISO (I am using the IoT Enterprise 2021 ISO), either mount it with WinCDemu or extract with 7-zip, and then open sources/install.wim using 7-zip, extract the following files:
    Windows\system32\Dism\ (entire folder with DLLs and MUI inside)
    Windows\system32\Dism.exe
    Windows\system32\DismApi.dll
    and put them all in a folder somewhere, you will be able to use DISM from Windows 10 on Windows 7 with no problems.

    Why not just install the ADK?

    The ADK installs more files which are useless to me, and I happen to have various windows ISOs lying around. It depends on whether you have Win10 ISOs lying around already, and if you want the extra stuff included in the ADK.

    Hello!

    I'm using this USB 3.0 driver successfully under Windows 7 on my computer with UASP and everything working.
    It's a Gigabyte GA-Z170-UD5 TH motherboard with the Etron EJ168 USB 3.0 controller on it.

    Then on another computer with a Gigabyte motherboard also with the same USB 3.0 controller, whenever I connect a USB 3.0 device up to either the front or back ports I just get a Code 43 that something went wrong and the device was stopped. I did try uninstalling the driver and re-installing it (Shows up with the Etron device name in the device manager) but still throws the same error.

    Reinstalling the original Etron device driver for the USB 3.0 controller restores functionality but of course then without UASP support.

    Please let me know if someone knows how to fix this issue.....

    Once again thank you for your help with this. I've been looking now at the device manager and if I check the device in question (external harddrive enclosure) it looks like it's using the normal Microsoft driver, nothing mentioned anywhere about UASP being enabled so it's a little difficult to know if it's actually working or not.

    And I'll try a Windows 8 (not 8.1) install to see what happens with the ported UASP/USB 3.0 driver when I have time.

    Kindest regards.

    Is this the same devices not found in Device Manager when installing a Nvidia GTX 16xxx in Win7 ?
