Windows 7 Service Pack 1 32 Bit

Posted on  by admin

Hello everyone,So I only tried the 64-bit version, as that's what I'm in need of, and I can say it appears to be legitimate.

If you make sure to create a BOOTABLE flash-drive, following either of these instructions:Rufus: https://rufus.ie/en/Power ISO: https://poweriso.com/tutorials/how-to-make-win7-bootable-usb-drive.htmThen you should see it load-up on your system as a Windows 7 installer.However, if you are installing this in a brand-new hard drive, you might run into trouble.

Windows 7 service pack 1 did NOT ship with USB 3.0 support.. so like me, you're (probably) going to find yourself sitting at the Install Screen that says "Choose your preferred Language," and neither your keyboard or usb mouse will work - even if they're wired.I have looked into a variety of workarounds, some people suggest to "disable USB 3.0 mode in BIOS by switching to USB 2.0 compatibility mode [or legacy USB 2.0]), and others say you have to modify the ISO file.

I'm going to be attempting the latter since by the end of this, I will be having a tri-boot system, and don't want to mess anything up for the other OS'.Here are two sources for, and two ways of, modifying the drivers on the ISO - one is through command-line, another is through faking a C:\ directory WIM mount.Command line: http://woshub.com/adding-usb-3-0-controller-drivers-to-windows-7-install-media/C;\WIM\MOUNT: https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/mini-pcs/nuc-kits/Install-Win7-to-USB3_0-Computers.pdfI'll try to report back if this thing lets me edit my posts.

Check if your PC is 32-bit or 64-bit

(If I manage to get a working ISO out of this which is inclusive of USB 3.0 support, I may re-upload this somewhere else and link to it in a separate comment. Nobody ever said Windows 7 die-hards were gonna go-down easy!!!).
