help with windows 7 on Dell xps 9550... im going to throw this thing

greetings windows 7 folks.



I have had the following issue with this process to install windows 7 on my Dell xps 9550 and still no luck: Dell XPS 15" (9550) - Windows 7 Config | davidzou.com
  • loaded usb 3.0 drivers successfully (I guess)
  • got to windows installation screen and still cannot load any intel based driver or Samsung driver for m NVMe ssd.
Specs of this piece of trash:
Dell xps 15 9550 15.6"
i7-6700HQ
32Gb Ram
1TB ssd (samsung PM951 NVMe 1024GB)


Lastly:

  • I have no clue how to use DISM ++ (maybe it needs to be compiled? i dunno holy F*^&)
  • I have tried slipstreaming drivers with Ntlite.... and no luck...
  • I have tried Cmd dism tool and cannot get drivers unblocked
  • Logged 48.8hrs over the past three weeks working on this.
help me Obi wan of windows 7 world...........

If you want to extract the iso to usb - you can use rufus, or usb7ice, etc.

Atak's thing is very big and it takes a while to build the media.


You can leave out things you don't need.

1. e.g. It is quicker to update the wim first using something like dism++. Then you can uncheck the updates boxes in the UI

2. You can delete ( or move elsewhere ) any stuff you don't want included in the iso.

For example If you are not going to use it on AMD machine, you could get rid of this :

Remember to comment it out in setupcomplete.cmd

Have a look and see if there is anything else you don't want.

I could not get DISM++ to run at all. Is there a tutorial somewhere for Dism++?

I am not aware of any tutorials for DISM++!
Here's a SevenForums post
Windows 7 slipstreaming with Dism++
Yes, I have Win7x64HP ISO, & All In One ISO
As SIW2 stated, uploading patched ISO to you will take a while.
Still game?

I just spent the morning into this evening patching it myself and no luck.
  • got to the end of the installation (completion phase?) and BSOD during final restart.
  • tried this three times and same outcome.
If you can upload a version that will work windows 7 home premium 64 bit that would be much appreciated. thank you so much for your help
Lastly, I got your message but I cannot respond back.
