Windows 7: Need help to get USB drivers into a generalized HDD for Win7 setup

16 Jan 2019   #11

Hi SIW2.

Firstly thanks so much for your help. Really the only help I have received.
I applied these drivers and I can see them in the device manager for BOOTX.
In DISM I removed the USB drivers and reapplied just these. As a cleanup of sorts.

I want to check something with you to ensure we are on the same page.

Because I have generalized the HDD, when my new setup boots to the HDD, it initializes windows setup. So my first screen is language and region setup.
Somewhere during this process up to this point it needs to load USB drivers I presume. So is there somewhere more specific to setup rather than just the windows disk that those drivers need to be referenced?

It should happen while there is the on screen message "installing devices"

You can run msinfo32 >components>problem devices. Then click file>export to export the ID of problem devices to a text file.

That ID can be used to find any missing drivers by searching the net.
