Windows 7: Are your Nvme hotfix files the only requirement for Win7?

10 Jun 2019   #11

Win7 Pro64

Wanted to touch base again to give you an update and thank all of the responders for their help.

I wound up deciding to leave my Win7 OS on my 250gb C: Samsung SSD as my boot drive. Other than a couple of programs that wouldn't allow me to choose to install them on my D: 1TB HDD to save space and hopefully speed, that's everything that's on that drive.

I purchased an Intel 1TB 660P Nvme last week on a good sale and the installation went perfectly. With the two hotfixes downloaded from here, Win7 saw the drive right away and a quick trip into disk management got it setup as my F: drive to use primarily for games and video work with it's quicker speed. I have read and understand that my speed may drop to about 100Mbs/sec after the 660p is about 75% full, but my current 1 TB platter never reached much over 25% capacity over the past few years so I expect I'll be okay on the new M.2 for quite a while.

I've recently retired (yes I am that old), and plan on finally playing some newer games for the first time, as well as some much older games (Win XP mode with a VC?) that I enjoyed a number of years ago. If that doesn't work, I still have an older Pentium computer with XP installed along with several "new" never installed original full XP installation disks to use if necessary. I plan on searching the forum for any help I need on the XP mode questions that I'm sure I'll come up with.

Again, thank you for all of your help from everyone here on my Nvme questions. Great forum. Much appreciated.
It would not have gone so smoothly without the help of the forum "staff" so I really appreciate everyone's input on this.

My suggestion is to set the virtual memory from C: to the HDD and to set the user and windows temp folder also to the HDD.

I guess this is really a question for the moderator. I have not been able to find anything, here or elsewhere, about using a virtual machine so you can use a NVMe SSD as boot drive for Win7 x86. I have found a lot of people frustrated, as I was, about it only being able to be used as a storage...
