Put the Samsung NVMe drivers files (*.cat, *.sys, *.inf) on another USB flash disk.
Boot the Win 7 installation disk and when it ask for a driver on a CD / DVD, browse to the USB flash disk.

Did you create the Dell Factory Recover disk? You can launch from BIOS. If something goes wrong, you can reinstall win 8.

So you're ready to install. Boot from the Win 7 installation disk, go to install - advanced - delete all partitions, create new.
Do you also have a HDD or only the M.2 SSD?

I would install the drivers and MS nvme upates into boot.wim image 2 and install.wim image 4.

You then need to copy the contents of the updated boot.wim image 2 sources folder to the updated install media sources folder.

Otherwise setup won't recognize the install media.
