    Can't install windows 7, constant crashes on registry editing restart


    I'm trying to dual-boot Windows 10 (first install) and Windows 7 (the second that I'm trying to install right now). However it keeps crashing on the first restart (the one where it says its editing the registry) randomly, and also not producing a memory dump. There is no mini-dump folder or a memory.dmp file in the windows directory no matter how many times I try to get it to show up. When I start in safe mode to show the drivers it crashes on a driver called AHCIX64S.sys, however it might be the driver next over. However because its not producing a memory dump, I don't know what the next driver is.

    This exact point in this video shows where the error starts happening: https://youtu.be/J4J2OcFaG2s?t=356

    I have no idea how to fix this nor are any of the threads on this forum helping. If it helps, none of my hardware is malfunctioning including my SSD and secure boot is disabled, however TPM isn't. Can I get help on this? I also can't get the blue screen details because it freezes completely when I turn off automatic restart, without ever showing a blue screen, and when I have auto restart on, it doesn't freeze and auto-restarts like it says it will.
    Please tell me also if this is the wrong thread, as I'm not 100% sure if this is where I should post this.

    Why do you have AHCIX64S.sys

    what installation media did you use

    I tried using one that was fully updated up to 2020, would that matter of ahcix64s.sys in there? It also had USB 3.0 drivers so I have no idea if that would matter either.

    I believe that is an amd driver. You dont want it. You could try uninstalling it from the wim image or from the image you have already applied, cant guarantee it will work.

    I would use dism++ to attempt it

    Would I do that to the installation media or the actual windows 7 directory?

    Also I can't figure out how to remove a driver using DISM, only detects the partition on the SSD and not the flash drive, plus no uninstall button for the driver.

    either or both. Try the image you have already applied first which I asume is what you mean by windows 7 directory

    some screenshots here show how to add driver with dism++. It is a simlar process except tick the driver you want To remove and click the Delete button
