    You could put them in both.

    I suspect your machine doesn't have csm support.
    you could try Release 1.30 . manatails/uefiseven . GitHub

    These are the canned instructions that I created for myself that may be helpful to you.

    -----------------------------------------------

    Download and save 7UPv64I.zip

    When the 7UPv64I.zip file is unzipped, a 7UPv64I folder will appear.

    Open the 7UPv64I folder to expose its contents.

    Create a new folder inside this folder and name it EXTRACTED-ISO

    Copy the contents of a Windows 7 SP1 64-bit disc or extract the contents of a Windows 7 SP1 64-bit ISO file inside the EXTRACTED-ISO folder.

    Copy UpdatePack7R2-22.7.14.exe and dotNetFx48_20220614_x64.WA inside the 7UPv64I folder.

    Deploy the 7UPDATERv64I.cmd command script.

    Follow the instructions very carefully as they appear.

    When you are prompted to locate the Windows 7 installation files, browse to and select the EXTRACTED-ISO folder.

    Do NOT touch the keyboard and mouse for any reason during the integration process, unless you are instructed to type in and enter something.

    When the integration process is finished, a log file will appear.

    Deploy the ISO-CREATE.cmd command script.

    Follow the instructions very carefully as they appear.

    When you are prompted to locate the Windows 7 installation files, browse to and select the EXTRACTED-ISO folder.

    An ISO file will be created.

    This will allow you to create bootable install media for Windows 7 SP1 64-bit which will be up to date to July 2022.

    -----------------------------------------------
    I followed this method but when I try to use the USB drive to boot, I get "BOOTMGR is missing Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart"
    Any idea how to solve this?

    Thanks

    As per your instructions (thank you btw), writing the ISO directly to the USB

    writing the ISO directly to the USB
    what does that mean ?

    if you have made the iso, it is possible to prepare the usb with diskmgmt, then extract the contents of the iso onto the usb using something like 7-zip.

    another way is to use this little program Usb7ice.zip

    moribund:
    I use my canned instructions to create bootable installation media in a DVD.
    I have never used it for a USB flash drive.
    I will leave you with SIW2 to sort out your issue.
    Good luck.

    Here is a way to get your installation media up to date: Includes "universal" usb3 , sata drivers, nvme drivers and MS nvme updates
    7Updater: ( approx 130mb)

    7UPv64I.zip


    NOTE: It is not required to use the simplix update pack. If you only want to integrate usb3 and nvme support, Run 7updater.cmd without simplix update pack present.

    If you want to include the simplix pack:
    Small downloader which can be run to download the latest Simplix updatepack ( about 850mb).
    https://update7.simplix.info/UpdatePack7R2.exe
    If you are using simplix updatepack, strongly recommend including the latest Net framework 4.8 add-on (see next post)


    1. Extract the 7UPv64.zip directly to the root of the drive, so you have C:\7UPv64 folder.

    2. If you want to include simplix update pack, put the UpdatePack7R2-date.exe in the C:\7UPv64 folder.

    3. Copy and paste your windows 7 SP1 installation media to a hard disk or ssd - not to a usb stick.

    (Or use ISO-EXTRACT.cmd to extract your windows 7 SP1 iso file to a hard disk or ssd - not to a usb stick.)

    4. Right click and Run as administrator on the the 7UPDATERv64.cmd

    Note: it is recommended to turn off your antivirus real time protection during the process, because it will slow it down.

    The linked biostar drivers will work for 8th gen , however sdi will d/l and install slightly more recent 21.20.16.5077 drivers. Works great on my system with a pentium g5400

    either sdi org or sdi origin, they will both do it. Also works for UHD630.

    here are the io drivers for 300 series win7x64
    Intel-Serial-IO-Driver for-300-series-win7x64.zip

    I tested all the above on an asus h310m-a r2.0 with g5400 as well as gigabyte b365 with i5-8400.

    The packages are really big, 32 gigs, can i use from the package only the Intel drivers i need for my system?

    I noticed this file: DP_Video_Intel-NT_22081.7z, it contain HD600_21.20.16.4565 and HD630_21.20.16.5077, guess is the one you mentioned above.

    Should this be the correct one?

    Btw, my mother board have H310 chipset first version, so natively is not compatible with Win 7 like the last 2.0 one or the B365 chipset.
