Hi Vineet Garg,


I extracted everything from the Wireless Killer 1550 and finally inside there are the Drivers for Windows 7 64bit.


I attached the picture.


Insidede the folder there are some subfolder with also a lot of .bin files (was too long to share to you each of the contents inside of the last folders, anyhow if you try to extract it you will see) as well and the unique Metodh that is working it's only the command Setup.exe -a -p C:\NEW !!!! All the rest - WinRAR, 7ZIP, Universal Extractor, from temporary folder and the CMD ....-extract C:\NEW.. all of them cannot catch any files from . Only 7Zip get some .icons file and few uknow files; anyhow seems I got everything from the command Setup.exe -a -p C:\NEW

Hi Vineet Garg,


So, I was going to jump over to a passage from you, about SetupChipset.exe to extract it.



Vineet Garg : 6) Just to mention
(a) The command SetupChipset.exe -extract C:\NEW was to extract Chipset driver.


Cris: So I extracted everything, and in this file are working only the CMDSetupChipset.exe -extract C:\NEW and the Temp file Metodh (''C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Temp\'').


All te rest - CMD Setup.exe -a -p C:\NEW, WinRAR, 7ZIP, Universal Extractor doesn't work.



Vineet Garg :(b) LessMSI is actually a dedicated .msi package extractor. It succeeded with .msi files extraction where 7-zip & WinRAR failed. So, i extracted the installer with 7-zip & got .msi files & then extracted .msi with LessMSI.
Cris: Example, for this exe Chipset file, doesn't extract anything.



What do you think, which is it the drivers CPU list are the correct one for my Laptop:
  1. CannonLake-H
  2. CannonLake-LP
  3. Coffeelake

Hi Cris,
One by one!

1) Honestly, I don't know much about .sys & .dll. Reading .inffiles always came helpful dealing with drivers. It's more of a practical thing.
Actually, one can simply double click any .inf files to read them & it will not make any changes. Not all the .inf files are driver oriented but they can be always double clicked without any danger. It's not a text file but it will open as a text file. It tells about the supported hardwares/devices & OSs. A driver oriented .inf file will always have one or more 'Hardware IDs' in the text depending on the devices supported.
The driver mod is actually done to .inf files by inserting/adding support sections for desired devices & OS in the text matter. The drivers largely work around them.
Warning :
Don't change an .inf file in the process of going/reading through them!
Don't do anything with them except just double clicking to read them without any change/danger!

For eg : The driver you have downloaded & extracted from Killer website, supports the particular wireless card only against win 10 ( See the '11ACW2' in win10 & examine 'Netwtw06.inf' )
But is easiest to mod for win7.

2. I asked you Advanced View from Disk Management from within win7 & win10 but i think you missed that. It will enable me to tell you all about UEFI, GPT, MBR,Nvme on your system.
Go to the Disk Management window & from the top menu bar, click 'View > TOP > Disk List' & take snaps. Just have a look where you have to start : The 'VIEW' is marked with yellow circle :

( I saw your earlier mentions & there were mistakes. The biggest was dropping Rufus! )

3. Another questions are : The two questions are different!

(a)Did you disable FAST BOOT in Bios ? You should do that for win 7.

(b)Did you disabled 'Fast Startup' from within windows 10 ? You should do that also for win7.
( Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10 | Tutorials )

4. I extracted the 'Killer Performance Driver Suite.msi' from the wireless driver by 'Temp' method & then extracted it with LessMSI.
( You are doing it with those commands with every other 'Setup.exe'. Different utilities/makers make them differently. Its not a standard commmand & it is utility/app specific. Its pure experimentation. Always make a system restore point before that. )

5. Just for clarification : LessMSI can only extract .msi files/packages. The files with extension .msi not .exe, It's very important!

6. Your chipset drivers ? You are having 8th gen/ coffelake processor so should be coffelake!
( Tell surely after some time )

7. So, for your USB ports :
(a) I was thinking about & You were right. Intel chipset Overall improved your USB ports but a proper driver will do the rest.
(b) Where you got 'Intel turboboost technology' program ? It came with Thunderbolt driver ? It should be installed only after the USB driver.( That was in your installed programs list )
(c) For your non working USB ports, 'Realtek Card Reader' driver listed under win 10, is fully supporting win7.
So, get rid of the installed 'Realtek PCI-E Card Reader' driver. Go to the Device Manager & Uninstall Realtek PCI-E Card Reader. If you are given the box to 'delete the driver' during uninstallation, go for it. After uninstallation, restart the pc, go to the Device Manager & look for Realtek PCI-E Card Reader device. If it comes back, repeat it for 2-3 times. Once it stops coming back, Install that driver by simply launching 'setup.exe' from the extracted folder.

Let me know.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Hi Vineet Garg,


on your point 1), thank you very much for your short breath about those files, was just to know for expand my "know how" on these extensions for my personal knowledge .


Vineet Garg :For eg : The driver you have downloaded & extracted from Killer website, supports the particular wireless card only against win 10 ( See the '11ACW2' in win10 & examine 'Netwtw06.inf' )
But is easiest to mod for win7.
Cris: Got your WARNINg and thanks for this great news, I hope to see this soon...

( I saw your earlier mentions & there were mistakes. The biggest was dropping Rufus! ) Cris: If you have better way, you are welcome , because I useed Rufus as the easiest waythis time. Please, share your way if I mistake.

Cris:Excuse me Vineet, I totally didn't get you, I thought you asked me the same screen shoot that I already provided you some times. In this messagge I attached you your request from both OS.


Vineet Garg :3. Another questions are : The two questions are different!

(a)Did you disable FAST BOOT in Bios ? You should do that for win 7.

(b)Did you disabled 'Fast Startup' from within windows 10 ? You should do that also for win7.
( Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10 | Tutorials )
Cris: Yes, I did it from the beginning to disable FAST BOOT in Bios. And, yes I did it from the beginning to disable 'Fast Startup' from windows 10, because gave me some problem with Windows 10 , and I already saw that with Windows 7 was some conflict; so no worries I already did this.


Vineet Garg :

4. I extracted the 'Killer Performance Driver Suite.msi' from the wireless driver by 'Temp' method & then extracted it with LessMSI.

5. Just for clarification : LessMSI can only extract .msi files/packages. The files with extension .msi not .exe, It's very important!
Cris: Yes, in fact I forgot to tell you that i extracted the file in the same way with LessMSI, anyhow thank you for clarify this because I thought I can extract the files also from .exe extensions.



Vineet Garg : 6. Your chipset drivers ? You are having 8th gen/ coffelake processor so should be coffelake!( Tell surely after some time )
Cris: Thank you, was just to be 1000 % sure on it


Vineet Garg :

7. So, for your USB ports :
(a) I was thinking about & You were right. Intel chipset Overall improved your USB ports but a proper driver will do the rest.
Cris: How we can let it work? We


(b) Where you got 'Intel turboboost technology' program ? It came with Thunderbolt driver ? It should be installed only after the USB driver.( That was in your installed programs list )

Cris: Well, Vineet Garg honestly I don't remember where I took those drivers, if I downloaded both of the drivers but modded from some Forum (like tha one that last time I shared with you the link), for sure that they are not from my original Windows 10. As I said, I believe that once we will finish all of these test/staff I think you need to clear my mind how to remake the Windows 7 iso from the original Drivers that we extracted... because I have bunch of extensions but I'm not sure how to use them (except the ,sys files that needs to be injected)


(c) For your non working USB ports, 'Realtek Card Reader' driver listed under win 10, is fully supporting win7.
So, get rid of the installed 'Realtek PCI-E Card Reader' driver. Go to the Device Manager & Uninstall Realtek PCI-E Card Reader. If you are given the box to 'delete the driver' during uninstallation, go for it. After uninstallation, restart the pc, go to the Device Manager & look for Realtek PCI-E Card Reader device. If it comes back, repeat it for 2-3 times. Once it stops coming back, Install that driver by simply launching 'setup.exe' from the extracted folder.
Cris: This I know, because in fact I installed from the beginning from the original drivers and are fully compatible, but anyway even if not necessary I made the steps that you requested me and Installed again. I followed exactly your steps, and anyhow the Sd are working well as the same like before.


Thank you ,
Cris

Hi Cris,
Greets,
I feel there is some communication gap. I am not able to make out how far you have taken it! Please let me know, so that i can help accordingly. What are the problems/issues that are still to be taken in account ?

2.
(a) As we see in the disk management, all the four hard disks are in GPT partition style. I think you mentioned that you went for MBR in Rufus. I need to know about the three selected items 'Partition Scheme', 'Target System' & 'File System'.
You went for UEFI CSM in Bios & now ?
If the installation media is written well on the pen drive, The non detection of NVMe drives is due to drivers.
(b) NVMe & SATA are just different storage controllers. You mentioned earlier that you changed SATA section in bios. I am interested if there is a NVMe section as well Because the laptop originally came with 2 NVMe drives ?
(c) Get me storage controllers Names & Harware IDs from win10. Go to Device Manager & look under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers & Storage controllers. ( The IDE section is for SATA Disk & Storage Controller should list NVMe controllers )

6. Chipset Drivers :
We can make it sure. We would go through 'CoffeelakeSystem.inf' file. We would look for supported devices' Hardware IDs.( There are 12 devices under this file)
Then compare them with Intel items in DevManView. ( DevManView listings can be sorted out easily to look into all the Intel devices at once. DevManView lists hardware IDs under Device Instance ID )
To narrow down your search : Not to look into Intel SATA, Audio, USB controllers,IMEI,Graphics. Look only for devices that has Device ID/Hardware ID as 'PCI\VEN_8086..........'
So, what are the other Intel devices that are not included in the CoffeelakeSystem.inf ?
Better we do it on win10.

7 USB ports :
(a) I have lost any hope to get them to work in this installation because the Chipset & the Realtek driver is supported 1000%. Some bad drivers/software components are doing all the damage.
(b) Do you have 'Intel Turboboost' in win10 'Installed Programs'. If its not there, the utility is not supported on your pc. It is not listed even in the support page 'Utility' section.
I am not sure but someone told me that there is section in his BIOS for controlling that functionality & he disabled it there to get rid of USB ports problem.
Actually, It's a CPU component & only a damage if it is not supported. Uninstall it & try installing Realtek driver again to see whether USB ports come into action!

I feel there are still some sections to be tested/mentioned about & we should not jump over it to ISO preparation. What do you think ?

Let me know.

Thanks & Regards. ...
