Windows 7 Ultimate x32 With Sp1 + Vista Ultimate x32 with Sp1 & Sp2 !!
 
 

Hi Cris,
Nice to hear back from you, You are putting in good efforts! While I am taking the things in account, I would like to share some things in between.

1) All original drivers are not win7 compatible. Additionally, even all win7 compatible drivers can't be added that way. So planning for minimum setup & go ahead from there.

2) Though NTLite gives a good idea of missing drivers but it has to be interpreted well.
It also reports drivers installed by some program(s) itself. I think System Firmware is one of them.
Also some drivers which are win 8/10 specific but not for win 7.
We will be sure about those things when we install the minimum setup & go to the Device Manager to look for really missing drivers.

3) BIOS are never integrated in OSs ISO!

4) The missing drivers' view of BOOT.WIM taken after Microsoft Windows Setup (x64) loading, right ? ( We will make changes in INSTALL.WIM & Microsoft Windows Setup (x64) )

Thanks & Regards. ...

Hi,
1) Downloading Updates : Create An Integrated Up To Date Windows 7 Install Disc • Raymond.CC
Download the latest update list for win 7 64. Then download Convenience Rollup Updates & Prerequisites (3) & Security Updates (32) with Windows Updates Downloader

Be careful : Windows Updates Downloader is not very smooth :
(a) Download updates one by one only.
(b) Take care that all other programs/apps/windows are closed during downloads.
(c) Take care that Internet connection is working well.

2. This will be your folder to deal with ( for the things we need to integrate in ISO etc )
Put the windows updates ( downloaded above ) in the Windows Updates only for INSTALL.WIM folder.

Cris downloads.zip

Are you ready for integration instructions ? Any Queries ? Anything else ?

Let me know.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Hi Vineet Garg,



I saw your posts right now, sorry.



On your previous post I got everything, and below I replay you on the question in point 4):



Vineet Garg: 4) The missing drivers' view of BOOT.WIM taken after Microsoft Windows Setup (x64) loading, right? (We will make changes in INSTALL.WIM & Microsoft Windows Setup (x64))


CRIS: Yes, in BOOT.WIM I loaded only the Microsoft Windows Setup (x64) and "not" the Microsoft Windows PE (x64). I did well, yes?


Now, I go through to your latest post and I will go back to you with the results....

Hi Vineet Garg,


Ok, ONLY in INSTALL.WIM by NTLite I installed the Upgrades downloaded from Windows Updates Downloader (and I downloaded them inside the uncompressed file in "your Folders" under Windows Updates only for INSTALL.WIM folder) and injected everything inside the Windows 7 Ultimate voice as below:


1) Updates for NVMe driver.
2) Convenience Rollup Update and Prerequisites.
3) Security Updates.


I downloaded all the upgrades, but I didn't inject as per your suggestion, as below:


1) Internet Explorer 11
2) Optional Software
3) Optional Updates
4) Remote Desktop Protocol 8.1 Updates
5) Windows 10 and Telemetry Updates


** I downloaded the new original Windows 7 Ultimate x64 iso, because i noticed that I have the Italian version, and I don't want that something goes wrong if I inject all the upgrades in English Language. Because in raymond.cc site, they made the file Upgrades list softwares to open by Windows Updates Downloader in English version.


Now? I have to inject the USB drivers only in BOOT.WIM? Or in BOOT.WIM I have to Inject everething (the Upgrades) including the USB Drivers?



In INSTALL.WIM I dind't injected the USB Drivers, is that ok?

Hi Cris,

This is very important to understand in full. Not even a hint of doubt because we are not following the links blindly. You have to follow me only!.
There are some very clear changes/differences in the integration process.
In the first go, we will do it all only for INSTALL.WIM without creating an ISO.
In the second go, we will make changes to BOOT.WIM/Windows Setup x64 & create an ISO.
First we will launch NTLite, mount INSTALL.WIM, Add things in it & Go for the integration process without creating an ISO. INSTALL.WIM changes made,applied & saved.
Then we will mount BOOT.WIM/ Windows Setup x64, Add things in it, select Create an ISO & go for the integration process. That way we finally make an ISO with all the changes made in BOOT.WIM & INSTALL.WIM

Which windows version you want to install ??

Take care about NTLite prompts & any red entries!

INSTALL.WIM :

1. Mount the INSTALL.WIM of your interest.
2. Go to the Integrate> Updates section & add Convenience Updates (3) + Security Updates ( 32 ) + NVMe Updates (2)
3. Then go to the Integrate>Drivers section & add the USB drivers.
4. Click the Apply button, Don't check the Create Iso button,Press the green Process button and wait for the integration to finish.

BOOT.WIM :

1. Mount Windows Setup x64.
2. Go to the Integrate>Updates section & add only NVMe Updates (2)
3. Then go to the Integrate>Drivers section & add the USB drivers.
4. Click the Apply button, check the Create ISO box and choose the save location and file name for the ISO image file. Press the green Process button and wait for the integration to finish.

Wait for my final instructions/mentions before installation.

Is your ISO ready ? Let me know.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Hi Vineet Garg,

Ok all done, and everthing went smoothly, no worries I'm following everything detailed as you tell me (if I have some doubt always I ask you).

If everything is done, let me know that I will start to create the ISO file from the scompatted folder.


PS: I injected all the files inside the Windows 7 Ultimate version , because to the other versions of Windows 7 (Home Basic,Home Premium and PRO) I don't need at least I kept the INSTALL.WIM file under 4GB otherwise I cannot flash in Fat32 the USB.



I am ready for next step..

Cris,
Did you need to do anything extra to keep the ISO size under 4gb ??
Go ahead with Bootable ISO creation & take care of the following things about installation:

1) The USB driver integrated is the one found & tested by you. So, only one of your USB port will work & support the installation. Other USB ports still need proper drivers.
2) Put the Windows Updates settings to 'Never check for updates' for some time.
3) The first thing to do after installation is to run SetupChipset.exe -overall
4) After that you can install ethernet driver to connect to internet.

Then its time to find out missing Drivers/Devices, their Names & Hardware IDs. DevManView will be very helpful to do this. It allows to look into Devices/Drivers of win10 from win7 OS itself. By comparing Hardware IDs, you can find exact name for the missing Devices/Drivers in win7 from win10 installation.
Alternative to device manager of Windows

Running Snappy to just see what it reports would be very helpful. I don't expect any installation but just the report.
Snappy Driver Installer - Install and Update Drivers for Free

Actually, While looking & trying to install drivers, we have to follow proper order. Some devices are needed to be installed prior to others. There is proper Devices' Tree. Some devices are in the root, So they need to be installed first.
To look into the Tree : Go to the Win7 Device Manager. From the Device Manager Menu, select View > Devices by connection

I depend on your reporting.

Best Of Luck!

( Tomorrow Evening )

Thanks & Regards. ...

Hi Vineet Garg,

finally, we found all the problems, and in this post, I will try to be brief in explaining the whole situation.



Firstly, since we have prepared the ISO with the minimum drivers/ upgrades setup to install Windows 7 in the Laptop, everything went smoothly, except that I met the famous installation problem that I shared with you in the past, the one that once I selected the NVMe disk to install the Windows 7 OS, and press NEXT, the percentage of installation remains at 0% and an error pop up comes out without code error and say that is not possible to continue; the installation create the initial partitions inside the NVMe but do not copy the files from the USB to the disk and I have to restart the installation to continue the OS installation. If you remember I have prepared a scheme steps for you about this regard; and after all the errors I using Lazersoft to fix the boot problem and then I can restore the installation to continue again to install the OS. However, the USB drivers tested by me are perfect, but to the problem of copying the OS inside the NVMe Disk it should be some other driver maybe a chipset driver that runs the NVMe Controller (I think and should be the driver Intel 300 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller), unfortunately I never managed to find out which exactly driver it makes me avoid this error, although in the past I have tried all the single drivers one by one. Anyway, to avoid this error the unique road is to inject all the latest drivers that I have prepared last time, but as you said probably too many similar drivers, it let runs some components of the Laptop but we will not find exactly those that doesn’t work properly with the system, because in the way the drivers will be adapted.


Now, except all this story, once everything was done I managed to find the way to use DevManView software optimally for what we need.
Both on Windows 7 and on Windows 10, I disconnected all external devices (except the Mouse for both operating systems) and I left listed out only all the components/devices/drivers from the Laptop.

And finally, everything is much clearer, I saved them in HTML files and then I re-saved in PDF.
The PDF file from Windows 7, I highlighted in Yellow all the internal components "Disconnected" (which means the drivers that are not installed, and because of this those internal components are not working) this, to facilitate us in the searching. I would like to underline, that these reports from DevManView software, I did it following all the procedure that you wrote to me (so, after SetupChipset.exe -overall). The CMD SetupChipset.exe -overall, it installed all the drivers inside the packaging (one by one), once finished the driver installation the system asked me to reboot. But, after reboot, still the following Chipset are not working; which I think are the cause of some major problems components communications , I listed them below (there are other small issues highlighted in Yellow, and later we can see inside the windows 7 PDF):


• Intel (R) Gaussian Mixture Model - 1911
• Intel (R) HECI # 1 - A360
• Intel (R) Host Bridge / DRAM Registers - 3EC4
• Intel (R) SMBus - A323
• Intel (R) SPI (flash) Controller - A324
• Intel (R) Thermal Subsystem - A379
• Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller (the famous A36D)


I downloaded again the full version of Snappy Driver (even if it’s the same that I got from few months ago), but Snappy tells the same things as the beginning, the software wants to install some Intel Gaussian Mixture Model – 1911 drivers but those drivers comes from XEON Architecture and are just adapted drivers as in the beginning the software did; it listed out the drivers A36D Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller that cannot find and the Killer-Lan 1550 the software find out but for sure as last time in the end cannot be installed. So, from Snappy nothing new so far.

Hi Cris,
Excellent, Wonderful, Brilliant! Its great to have you on the other side & I assure you of my best efforts.

1) Yes, I fully remember the installation problem. I am 99% sure its due to NVMe drivers. We added two Microsoft updates for NVMe driver. Their purpose was to add NVMe driver to the ISO. Those were basic Microsoft NVMe drivers which should work regardless of the NVMe manufacturer but they did not do very well. Next time we will not use them & we would add particular Samsung drivers from Win-RAID Forum. Just mention Hardware IDs of all the three NVMe drives.
I will give 1% to a missing chipset driver. We may need to add chipset drivers to the ISO to avoid the problem. I have already said that the Official/Original Chipset has 100% Win7 support.
So, leave it to me. I am not worried about it at all.

You have a SATA AHCI driver under IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers in the Device Manager as said by you Intel(R) 300 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller. It is already there & working fine. Are you having any problems accessing/using the SATA Harddisk from Win7 OS ?
Actually, It has nothing to do with any NVMe drives. It is only for the SATA Hard disk you have. So, it has nothing to do with installation on a NVMe drive.
SATA & NVMe are totally different storage controllers. If you want to know about it, Just go to the Device Manager. In the Device Manager Menu, Click VIEW & select Devices By Connection. That will clear your doubts.

To Avoid Any Confusions : Chipset, MEI, Storage & Graphic drivers are considered as Chipset drivers but whenever we call Chipset, we would refer Chipset & not Chipset

2. Did you catch the TIP ? I said that you can analize/access the WIN10 Devices/Drivers from within WIN7 Installation/OS with the help of DevManView.

Rest For Tomorrow!

Thanks & Regards. ...

Hi Vineet Garg,

Thank you so much for the compliments you are really kind, I try to give my best to help each other.


I reply you on hte 2 points:



1) Finally, I discovered what this damn Intel (R) 300 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller is, I downloaded the PDF "300-series-chipset-pch-datasheet-vol-1"; if you go to the chapter 2 in "PCH Controller Device ID" you can find the outline of our problems related to the communication chipsets. I downloaded another PDF "DFI-CH960-CM246-QM370-COM-Express-Basic-DataSheet" this pdf is much simpler and gives us a clear view of the problems related to some Intel drivers chipset. So, Intel (R) 300 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller is not related to the SATA HDD HGST or to the 3 NVMe that anyway still have a different connection from SATA, since there are NO other SATA ports in the laptop, this driver is related to the communication of some Intel proprietary technology (perhaps or Intel Optane or Intel proprietary AHCI technology).

To be 100% sure, I have consulted the site "iFixit" where sometimes I go to see how to disassemble and assemble some complicated PC like Apple or Laptop, and sometimes this type of chip communication is installed on the motherboard through a "COMexpress mini motherboard" it is installed on the main motherboard so you can keep the two motherboards attached to each other like a "sandwich" (the COMexpress if you do not know this connection, it is a connection that I found in some laptops in the past and usually is not present in the desktop PC Motherboards, if you're curious about that I attached some images related to this type of connection, it works like a PCIe connection for flat PC CASE, and it is a different connection to a MXM PCIe laptop connection, because COM express manages to keep the components added on the main motherboard in a horizontal instead of a vertical direction if you have space problems). Anyway, in my MSI Laptop, it seems that this 300 Series Chipset Family it is soldered on the main motherboard (like the Intel CPU), therefore, the problems are all concentrated here; starting from the first communication problems between some components such as USB ports.




Vineet Garg: Are you having any problems accessing/using the SATA Harddisk from Win7 OS ?



CRIS: No!


The rest all noted, thank you.



2) Vineet Garg: Did you catch the TIP ? I said that you can analize/access the WIN10 Devices/Drivers from within WIN7 Installation/OS with the help of DevManView.


CRIS: Honestly, I didn't, because I didn't found this TIP voice inside the software and to don't waste the time to ask you about that I made the report when I was inside Window 7 and Windows 10 separately. But, if you can teach me how to use this TIP option inside the software it will help me for next time .

Cris
