    GPT/UEFI enabled Win7 installation USB


    Hi,
    Any idea how can I create Win7 x32 USB installer that supports GPT/UEFI boards?

    Got a chinese tablet with 2/32 and its to low for Win10. But i made myself in the past really small in7 installation and would love to check if it would work on this device with Win10 drivers.

    Problem is I cannot find a way to create UEFI USB with Win7 x32...

    Any idea?

    Tried creating it with Yumi (all 3variants), WinSetupFromUSB and even Win10 installation media made by Rufus that I changed install.win to Win7 one.
    Latest started installation, but gave error somewhere closer to its end...

    win7 x86 does not support efi boot.

    It would have to be win8 or newer. One way to check is to look in system32 for winload.efi. As far as I know, nobody has succeeded in porting that capability from win8 x86 back to win7 x86.
