    It checks if there is a valid slic, if a valid slic table is available it installs the oem:slp and the corresponding certificate, if there is no valid slic, it installs the loader part (an emulated slic table inside the mbr) too.

    All just like a real oem system.

    This is easier than what I had to do last time, finding my # from the SLP list and hoping it would work.
    I see there's a separate forum for loader, so I'll continue there

    Many thanks

    It appears one of the pre requisites to install Win 7 that is not listed is a 2.0 USB. I am trying to repair a Win7 64bit install with the ISO in this thread on a Lenovo M910T that only has 3.0 USB. Win7 boots up just fine but the keyboard and mouse don't work. Does anyone know how to repair Win7 with an alternate way to use a mouse? Maybe there is a new card I could plug into a new machine with an old USB that Win7 would recognize?

    Repairing from boot? Normally a repair install is an inplace upgrade, just extract the iso to a folder and run setup.exe.

    For booting from USB3 ports you can integrate the generic usb stack driver or the system specific USB3.x drivers, into boot.wim index 2 and install.wim.

    well depending on the motherboard you can disable it in the BIOS, which is my case after I almost went bald when I bought mine

    Thanks for the reply.

    I do need to do a repair upgrade. I can't boot into Win7. I do have a duel boot so I can write to the hard drive but running setup.exe requires me to boot into the Win7 that gives me a BSOD.

    I know the drivers can be slip streamed into the ISO but I don't know how to do it.

    Thanks

    In this case there won't be the option to repair, clean install only.

    You could use any of the sticky Win 7 Uptodate ISO creator tools in the Win 7 section, all are able to integrate the generic usb3.x stack drivers.

    But manually it's:

    - Extract the ISO to a folder.
    - Mount the boot.wim (index 2)
    Code:
    Dism /mount-wim /wimfile:x:\sources\boot.wim /index:2 /mountdir:c:\mount_boot
    - Integrate the drivers into boot.wim index 2
    Code:
    dism.exe /image:"c:\mount_boot" /Add-Driver /driver:"z:\USB3.x_Drivers" /recurse
    - Save and Unmount boot.wim index 2
    Code:
    dism /unmount-wim /mountdir:c:\mount_boot /commit
    - Mount the install.wim (only the desired index, in this example i've randomly selected index 3)
    Code:
    Dism /mount-wim /wimfile:x:\sources\install.wim /index:3 /mountdir:c:\mount_install
    - Integrate the drivers into install.wim index 3
    Code:
    dism.exe /image:"c:\mount_install" /Add-Driver /driver:"z:\USB3.x_Drivers" /recurse
    - Save and Unmount install.wim index 3
    Code:
    dism /unmount-wim /mountdir:c:\mount_install /commit
    Etc...etc...

    Thank you for the reply...

    I was just successful in booting the OS. I'm running sfc /scannow . I need to figure out why it wouldn't boot.
    Does anyone know of a good program to test everything in Win7?
    I'm currently running Bitdefender Antivirus. Up-To-Date. I have run Malwarebytes. I don't run it interactively. Only on demand.
