Hi Cris,
Greets,
Please stand by me we will get through it!
Try to fulfill these requirements carefully :

1. The Disk Management views (Standard & Advanced ) from the latest win10 installation.

2. What were the selections in Rufus for win 7: 'Partition Scheme', 'Target System' & 'File System'

3. What were the selections in Rufus for win 10 : 'Partition Scheme', 'Target System' & 'File System'

Let me know.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Hi Vineet Garg,,


ok here we go:


1. The Disk Management views (Standard & Advanced ) from the latest win10 installation.
CRIS:Please see the attached files.


2. What were the selections in Rufus for win 7: 'Partition Scheme', 'Target System' & 'File System'
CRIS:Please see the attached files.


3. What were the selections in Rufus for win 10 : 'Partition Scheme', 'Target System' & 'File System'
CRIS: For Windows 10 USB Installation I didn't used Rufus, but I used the original Microsoft Media Installation; and this is the reason of why I discovered the problem of the NVMe/Bios that cannot be Rufus but it is a problem of the Bios behaviour (as also I did read around).



In meantime I'm studing the interesting processes that you asked me for created the iso.....

Hi Cris,
Greets,
Thanks for the help & stuff ( specially Turboboost ) , Sorry for botheration!
1. As said by you, you changed SATA section in BIOS. Is there a NVMe section in bios ?
2. Though Turboboost app is supported on win7, I would advise to keep distance from it as of now. Leave BIOS as it is.
3. 'nLite' for XP, 'vLite' for Vista & 'NTLite' for win7/8/10.
4. Please don't open your laptop.
5. I agree with you : win7 can't run in Full UEFI.
6. I am quite hopeful that all the USB ports will work.
7. Need not touch Turboboost in BIOS as of now but keep distance from installing it in the OS ( as said above)
8. I am interested why you disabled Thunderbolt 'USB' & 'Boot' support again ?!
9. I am interested what Thunderbolt is doing now ?!!
10. Are you able to decide over wanted stuff in Windows Updates ?
11. Probably, the last question soon!

My plan is to integrate windows updates & few drivers that make a basic/workable installation. Then we will get the devices to work one by one.

Anything else ? Please let me know.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Hi Vineet Garg,

I'm testing like a crazy......... I have some nice resaults and more consciosly where there are the problems and how to solve them.

I go back to you soon with a nice report, I think we are in the right track my friend.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks for the help & stuff ( specially Turboboost ) , Sorry for botheration!
CRIS: Thanks to you and never mind .

1. As said by you, you changed SATA section in BIOS. Is there a NVMe section in bios ?
CRIS: The NVMe, unfortunately there is not this voice (are only two Mode SATA/INTEL OPTANE to choose in between as I wrotre in few posts ago), but don't worry because now we haven't these problems with the new drivers that I injected!!!!

2. Though Turboboost app is supported on win7, I would advise to keep distance from it as of now. Leave BIOS as it is.
CRIS: Thanks for the advices ok I will not install it, because also I cannot see the differences...

3. 'nLite' for XP, 'vLite' for Vista & 'NTLite' for win7/8/10.
CRIS: Thank you very much for this, I didn't know about.

4. Please don't open your laptop.
CRIS: For sure ..
5. I agree with you : win7 can't run in Full UEFI.
CRIS:



6. I am quite hopeful that all the USB ports will work.
CRIS: Me too, and I discovered many things that I will report you, I anticipate you that you where right about the Intel(r) usb 3.1 eXtensible host controller (congrats), because I try to navigate in hte Fernando Forum and found the modded one from him (thanksfully to Fernando), and only after this I unlocked the Thunderbolt/USB 3.1 otherwise with others does't work!!! The "normal USB" still not works but I believe we are close...


7. Need not touch Turboboost in BIOS as of now but keep distance from installing it in the OS ( as said above).
CRIS: Yes, I got you on it no worries...

8. I am interested why you disabled Thunderbolt 'USB' & 'Boot' support again ?!
CRIS: Was just temporary because I reset all the voice as factory settings, because I made some test to understand where was the problems of the NVMe/BIOS, but now I installed back windows 7, please no worries because I was going to turn on again once I was going to Install Windows 7. Anyhow, by Default the System Disable the Fucnionality if I reset by Factory Settings.

9. I am interested what Thunderbolt is doing now ?!!
CRIS: After Intel(r) usb 3.1 eXtensible host controller, in Windows 7 is working once I give the right driver injected by NTLite, in Windows 10 even if by BIOS the Thunderbolt port is Disable anyhow still working. I think that The type C USB and Thunderbolt are two different functionality . Have means that Thunderbolt as we know gives the 40 GB/s transfer rate only with Thunderbold hardware compatibility otherwise the Thunderbolt port will work as a normal Type C USB 3.1 with 10 GB/s of transfer rate. Anyhow, I keep it turned on anyway...



10. Are you able to decide over wanted stuff in Windows Updates ?
CRIS: I studied it day and night on that and now I'm more conscious of what I really need and what for but anyhow I will share with you with the report of what I did....

11. Probably, the last question soon!
My plan is to integrate windows updates & few drivers that make a basic/workable installation. Then we will get the devices to work one by one.
CRIS: Yes, exactly Vineet Garg, the Windows Updates are not so important (except the hotfix like the NVme maybe), because I can see that the Windows 7 installation need the right drivers to let it works amazingly. I agree with you totally. The Windows Upgrades, for the functionality of the installation are the really minor problems, because I can Install the Windows Updates once everything are working well.

Hi Vineet Garg,

after few days of studying, tests, errors and so on, so finally I did Windows 7 working well but I still missing the following Drivers:

For the lateral and principal 5 USB 3.1:

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_A36D&SUBSYS_121C1462&REV_10
This should be the Key to let works all the USB 3.1 around of the Laptop, from Microsoft it’s this driver by Windows 10 Controller host Intel(R) USB 3.1 eXtensible - 1.10 (Microsoft)


For the USB 3.1 Type C/ Thunderbolt, the original is not fine, so I used some from Fernando Forum and another one from the nice site Station Drivers, In fact at the beginning NTLite on the list hardware missing was wrote 2 of Controller host Intel(R) USB 3.1 eXtensible - 1.10 (Microsoft). And now, it is missing only one from the 5 Normal USB, anyhow this it’s the list of the USB Type C/ Thunderbolt to work:


Intel USB 3.1 Controller Drivers Version 17.2.70.x WHQL

This site has any drivers extracted for any system Version of Windows OS, especially to whom it’s looking for the latest drivers for the oldest Windows OS.
To the let it works totally, I used all the latest Fernando Drivers USB at this address (because without these drivers I cannot make the USB Installation on the installation Windows 7 process):
Forum - USB 3.0/3.1 Drivers (original and modded)

The report of this entire situation, it seems that all the drivers that I injected even the latest one Modded from Fernando, they are working, but I checked inside the missing drivers list from NTLite, and there are few that match and the others doesn’t match with one that I really need because per my understanding it’s the family chipset Intel(R) C240 Series Chipset Family LPC Controller.
I can find from CofeeLake hardware, any chipset even the rare Chipset Family C230 but I still not find the C240 that I believe it is connected to the USB problems.
In fact, in the architecture C220 and C230 inside the log list of the USB drivers I saw few matchings drivers and I tried them as well anyway, but it misses the exactly key driver to let the USB communication works.

Here, I need your help to try to mod the original drivers with help from some one that can help me. Or if you can help me in some way to find.



Killer(R) Wireless-AC 1550 Wireless Network Adapter (9260NGW)

As you know I extracted the drivers but it seems not enough for the system, because still not find the Killer(R) Wireless-AC 1550 hardware, I tried to install the older version of Killer WiFi software successfully but the software finds out only the Aquantia AQtion 10Gbit Network Adapter. So, it seems that the drivers to find the Killer 1550 not fully installed, it seems still missing something else, in fact you can see in the picture with the drivers missing list from NTLite (that I attached in this post)
SteelSeries PS/2 Keyboard

I don’t know what to do, I saw from the report of the NTLite missing drivers that, the drivers are signed by MSI, I think if it’s possible to mod the drivers by the help from someone will be great.

The rest are working perfectly, even the NVMe, and especially no errors anymore during the Windows 7 Installation


So, we still to solve those 3 problems (the 5 USB,Wireless-AC 1550 and if possible the lights from SteelSeries PS/2 Keyboard).

I have tried any way and any software with a lot of test and the best it’s NTLite, because first can find from your system Windows 10 what it’s missing for Windows 7, second when it modified the .wim files doesn’t make any bad corruption of the image and can create the .iso from the same software where NTLite management everything, when others software make everything nice but corrupt the boot files for some reason. The thing that I love from NTLite, it is that before install the system can tell you what you still missing inside your new .iso OS, and this it’s so much an advantage from this software, because save you hours of re-testing and installing of the OS from zero.

I used and learned the following softwares to download the Windows Upgrades (but useless as I said except the NVMe and other few hotfix):

A. Windows Update software
B. AutoPatcher
C. Wsusoffline.
D. WHDownloader


Thank you so much for this Vineet Garg, it’s anyway nice to know all these stuff


Cris

Sorry, I forgot, the Bluetooth doesn't work as well.

So, are totally 4 hardware not working - The 5 USB,Wireless-AC 1550, The Back Lights from SteelSeries PS/2 Keyboard and the Bluetooth.

I tried to inject the Original Drivers from the Original Windows 10 under the voice of Windows 7....but nothing, even from the original I don't know what it's missing here.

Hi Cris,
Greets,
Good Stuff! Now that you have given me a stable installation, I will mod the drivers. I will expect that before trying any modded driver, you always make a system restore point & instantly make a restore if it fails. Actually a broken installation can do all the damage.
Its time up for today!

Thanks & Regards. ...

Hi Cris,

1. 'Intel(R) C240 Series Chipset Family LPC Controller'
Run 'SetupChipset.exe -overall' with the original chipset driver.

2. After Chipset, you should be able to run NTLite from within win7. When you launch NTLite, there is a 'Live Install' option on the very first window. That allows to mount installed OS & look into it. You can directly know what is still missing in the installed OS from time to time.

3. After Chipset, 'PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_A36D&SUBSYS_121C1462&REV_10'
Try this : Driver.zip
( modded the driver from Win7 Image Updater to add support )
( This is not digitally signed! )

4. If 3. goes well, Install original 'Realtek card reader'.

Let me know.

Thanks & Regards. ...
