Possible to install Windows 7 on Z390 Board with No PS/2 Ports?

I want to install Windows 7 on the Z390 Aorus Pro Wifi and it has no PS/2 ports and when I get into the installation the keyboard and mouse don't work because it has no Windows 7 drivers. I heard that other people have gotten this to work by buying a PCIE usb card, but I've also heard that some cards don't work, so I don't wanna risk buying one if I'm not sure whether it'll work. I have a DVD drive if it cannot be installed without one.

Is this possible? If so, how do I go about doing it?

You can integrate the drivers into the wim images before installing

It can be done with this tool Update your Win 7 installation media

( if you only want to integrate the drivers included with the tool - it is not necessary to download simplix update pack)



Just download the 7upv50.zip and extract the zip to your hard disk.

Then extract the win7 installation iso - you can use the included extract-iso.cmd to do it.

Then rt click and run as admin on 7updaterv50.cmd

Every time I try to do it I get this error. I have extracted the ISO file to my documents folder, as it doesn't let me select anything on my C:/ drive. I select the EXTRACTED_ISO folder and choose to mount boot.wim, but it just returns this error.

Error: 2

Unable to access the image.
Make sure that the image path and the Windows directory for the image exist and you have Read permissions on the folder.

There is something weird on your system with permissions. Have you some way of restoring a previously made system image or a system restore to a point before the permissions problem?

You could try copying the 7up folder from documents to c:\ and see if that is any better.

Have you got win10 installed on that machine already?

If so, you could create another partition - apply the win7 image to the new partition - integrate drivers to the applied image - add a boot menu entry for the new partition.

Then boot into it.

You can do the applying image and integrating drivers from within your existing os. Dism++ is useful for that.

It is in the BIN\x64\tools folder

I'm saying that the windows that pops up only goes straight to my user and it has nowhere to input a file path or anything. It just goes straight to my user folder. Picture is attached.

I got Windows 7 installed using this, and the USB ports all work, but I have no wifi. Are there any drivers for that?

find the pnp device id

If it is

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_A370&SUBSYS_00348086&REV_10
I think you are out of luck . You could use a cheap wifi dongle that has win7 drivers

It says what you said. (it says PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_A370&SUBSYS_00348086&REV_10\3&11583659&0&A3) and I looked up my wifi card, and it has absolutely no Windows 7 drivers from Intel. I've just resorted to using an old USB wifi dongle that I had laying around and it works perfectly. Thank you very much for taking the time to help me with installing Windows 7 on this machine. If you are wondering, the wifi card is Intel(R) Wireless-AC 9560 160MHz. (I looked at it in device manager on Windows 10). Have a nice day/afternoon/night. I am very glad I finally have Windows 7.
