What media you're trying to boot (DVD, USB)?

As you said this comp came with W8 then its likely running EUFI - not Bios legacy.


depends on whether you want to muck about in the Bios to make life easier-
stay with UEFI
UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Help Forums

your screenshot means it cant see the drive with an OS on it, did you change the boot from option.

when you created the USB
was it for a UEFI install

see point 3 in the tutorial

you CANNOT MIX the 2, you end up like you have

I have been involved in several threads explaining how to incorporate usb3 and sata/nvme drivers into boot.wim AND the install.wim image.

1) In your case, you need to install them into boot.wim image 2. and install.wim image 4 (Ultimate).

2) You then need to copy the contents of boot.wim image 2 sources folder to the installation media sources folder (overwrite).

3) You would sensible to install them into winre.wim image 1 as well.

[DELL have prepared install media for download, but I think they only have Professional edition.]
