    Desktop computers using USB kb/mouse always failed. Hence I moved to laptop which has built-in kb/touchpad.

    Installed HP customized USB3 drivers. It fixed the problem. USB ports and USB devices are working.
    Solved: HP 15-ay041wm usb controller driver - HP Support Community - 5881549

    google search many these issues, mouse keyboard NOT working

    As far as I know, paragon p2p doesn't do anything to usb.
    That is why it is possible your usb3 drivers from hp8300 might be causing some problem on the switch to the G1.

    Windows 7 is last user of this tool/Paragon Adaptive Restore 2010.
    Windows 10/11 no need of it any more.

    Dual boot - Win 7 Pro 64-bit and Win 10 Pro 64-bit

    My Dell Optiplex 7010 MT dual-boots Win 7 Pro 64-bit and Win 10 Pro 64-bit. The Win 10 starts up but the Win 7 doesn't. The 7 goes as far as the four glowing MS flags, and stays there.

    Do you think this app can help me fix my Win 7 and retain all the apps and files in the 7, but without damaging the Win 10?
    -- Can I run the app without being able to start the 7?
    -- If I start the 10 and run the app in the 10, will it see the 7 partition and fix only the 7 partition?

    Thanks.

    you would need to extract it from the iso because it is an old pre sp1 winpe that doesnt support nvme.

    so extract the Programs folder onto your win10 partition from the paragon 2010 iso \sources\boot.wim using 7-zip

    click sources

    dble click on boot.wim to open it in 7-zip

    copy out the Programs folder onto your win10 partition.

    then copy this file from \sources\boot.wim windows\system32

    and this file

    into the paragon Programs\program folder

    put it into an updated win7 bootable wim file that supports 32 bit programs and which includes sp1 and the nvme updates

    like this one 17514x64v30.iso


    then run p2panalysis.exe

    select the win7 installation you want to adjust and click next

    SIW2 - very nicely detailed - thanks!

    But, right now, it's my dual-booting original HDD that is not starting in Win 7, so I might not insert those NVMe driver files yet. I'd like to fix this original Win 7 before I try again to clone everything to my NVMe.

    Just for my peace of mind,
    1. if I run this app in its WinPE environment (or in my Win 10?), will it be smart enough to tell the difference between my Win 7 and 10 partitions and fix only the 7?
    2. As it's a very old app, will it "fix" my Win 7 back to such an old version of 7 that I won't be able to update it to today?


    Thanks!

    it needs to be run in win7 or win7 pe.

    yes, you select from the os it has found.


    As it's a very old app, will it "fix" my Win 7 back to such an old version of 7 that I won't be able to update it to today?
    no it wont affect that at all. It just makes some changes in the system hive so that windows goes into setting up devices again.
