Win 7 doesn't natively have USB3 drivers so they need to integrated [added] to the installation ISO [install & boot].

I hope this helps!

I believe I misstated what I want / need.
There are 48 Pages in this Post.
The objective is great but I could never accomplish it.
Yes, I would like to buy a CD or DVD that contains all of the above.
I believe it was referred to as 'Windows-7 Pro Service Pack Two'.
I realize Microsoft hasn't and most likely will not produce this.
If someone else did, not infringing on Microsoft's Rights, WOW, how wonderful it would be.
I am in the market if and when it becomes available.

[1] You will not be able to get a CD/DVD that contains the USB3 drivers, hence the thread to integrate them into the ISO.
[2] The last release of Win 7 was Win 7 SP1!

I hope this helps!

EDIT: TYPO.

It is possible to get the DELL installation media, which has some drivers and updates included, that is from 2016.
Might not necessarily be the drivers for your machine, some of those updates are superseded and there have been quite a few more since.

It is better to update the regular media using 7UPdater

Totally agree with you.

Thanks for this extremely useful utility. I am out in the sticks on a very slow download connection, is it possible for me to download the Simplix update pack when at work on a fast connection and bring it back home on say a stick drive and use (integrate) it from there? Thanks.

Yes. Then copy it next to 7Updater.cmd. It will find it there.

It can be downloaded from:

UpdatePack7R2-19.8.22.exe

or

UpdatePack7R2-19.8.22.exe

That's great, it will save me a lot of download time grabbing it alone from elsewhere, thank you!

How would I add the drivers in an .exe file, specifically these for a true SCSI card for my LTO tape drive? Thanks.

In fact, generally speaking, what do you need to extract from many driver installation utilities that come with a new motherboard on a CD or DVD, or the latest from the maker's web sites, many / most are .exe files.

Most of the *.exe files you can open with 7zip and then extract the *.ini,*.cat, *.sys etc
