    Installing Windows 7 on intel Comet Lake ?


    Hello. Long story short, I wanna install W7 on my Pentium Gold G6400 system. I dunno how can I slip intel (and which ones to get) USB3 drivers, on the ISO image. I have no PS/2 keyboard/mouse nor a optical disc drive.
    I found some complicated stuff online, but most requiere a windows OS, I have Linux atm (Fedora).
    I can fire up a VM though and get to some windows OS.
    Please,is there someone that can guide me,step by step,on how can I make / install ? And if there is any chance I could get a intel graphics driver working for UHD 610? (I know officialy ,is none).

    Thank you very much .

    The update ( .msu file ) and driver at the bottom of all my posts is for usb3.
    https://www.sevenforums.com/attachme..._win7_2021.zip

    The update ( windows6.0-kb2864202-x64.msu file ) must be integrated first, then after that the drivers.

    Dism++ can be used to do it

    In windows it can be done by mounting the installation media boot.wim file image 2
    Then add the update to the mounted image
    then add the drivers to the mounted image
    then save the image
    then unmount the image.

    Do the same with whatever your image number is in install.wim

    You can try the biostar graphics drivers - they work perfectly for my uhd630, maybe they will suport your uhd610 as well.

    need driver for intel uhd620

    Ok,did it. after adding them, I then made a bootable ISO again with Imgburn, I wrote it with Rufus ( Screenshot - 0ef40060cf42173ed8c77a1f81bb59dc - Gyazo ) in GPT partitioning scheme (my BIOS doesnt allow me to enable CSM, if I dont have a dedicated graphics!) , and it boots, loads the Windows 7 animated logo, and then...complete freeze .

    A hard reset is needed after that.

    Did that a few times.

    You will need more than just usb3 drivers. Particularly if you dont have csm enabled. You could ask at win raid

    If you want to install win7 without csm, you could try Releases . manatails/uefiseven . GitHub

    Currently, Win-Raid has some bigger issues to overcome, before thinking about these "details" (wish they were details but anyway...). Meaning, the transition of the forum software and DB to a format which will allow migration and future control. Our current plan/discussion involves that as a first step as well, so we need some time to have a cleaner picture of what the near future will look like for this forum. To answer your question more directly, it will probably be a merger of sorts, we'll see when we know what we're dealing with.

    ...To sum up, the current situation/plan is vastly better than last week's future prospects. So we need to let it play out. Sit tight and if we need some help from our users during this process/plan, we'll let you know.
