  1. or OP can read the following topics in other forums: from Reboot.pro forum - Install Windows 7 at UEFI Graphics Output Protocol (GOP) hardware http://reboot.pro/topic/21108-install-windows-7-at-uefi-graphics-output-protocol-gop-hardware/ from MDL forum - UefiSeven: Easily boot Windows 7 on UEFI class 3 devices https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/uefiseven-easily-boot-windows-7-on-uefi-class-3-devices.82137/ note: Win7's default vga.sys driver only supports BIOS systems and hangs/freezes on pure UEFI (no CSM) systems; USB3 & 3rd party graphics drivers needed to be integrated onto Win7 usb install media if installing on PCs with modern UEFI chips
  2. that has been proven wrong with this app which I use regularly
  3. the LTSB/LTSC editions of Win10 seem to work well on my old PCs (2nd gen Intel core, AMD Socket AM3+ cpu & older based pcs) - at least those editions get 5 years of mainstream support & another 5 years of extended support for a total of 10 years. and I don't have to deal with having to install big win10 feature updates the non-LTSB/C editions get shorter support life spans depending on each Win10 release (see MS Windows Lifecycle Fact sheet)
  4. it appears the HP 790-0000i desktop PC only has Win10 X64 supported driver downloads as Win7 is an unsupported OS for the 790-0000i. I also suspect that desktop PC has UEFI and Win7 can only work with either CSM or "legacy" support (those options have to be access in UEFI/BIOS setup - read some of the manuals here, especially the "bios simulator" guide & user guide), before attempting to install & run Win7. Win7 won't run on "pure" UEFI mode & needs either CSM or legacy boot
  5. I recently saw this from abbodi in another forum: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Win101607EOS] "{053DEC44-5C18-418D-BC3A-7D0C1F6838E3}"="{368E1623-5A77-4893-8201-48096DEE4970}" "{B78F56A2-868B-44B2-A373-DF57A232D4BE}"="{16D54C04-4D80-496D-B3FA-937F0AAAEB37}" adding this reg key & their values may allow installation of new updates on any 1607 edition with KB4132216 & newer servicing stack updates (as if it were operating on intel clover trail cpus) no need to use modded or older wcp.dll files anymore edit 8/31 - aww crap (it was too good to be true), this reg hack doesn't work as recent cumulative updates like KB4565511 & KB4571694 still fail to install with "we couldn't complete the updates. undoing changes" message when attempting to install them on non-LTSB 1607 editions like Home/Pro/Education/Enterprise. the recent CUs only install successfully with LTSB 2016
  6. try using ipconfig /release first and then type ipconfig /renew for the TP-link adapter card. if no improvement, try updating the drivers for it. if that still does not work, try unplugging and re-plugging your internet modem/router device
  7. you might be better off doing one of the following: a. run v1607 on 7th gen Intel hardware like NUC7i3BNH (Kaby Lake - 1607 release officially supports up to Kaby Lake; 8th/9th gen or newer hardware [aka Coffee Lake] not supported nor guaranteed). OR b. run v1809 or LTSC 2019 on NUC10i3FNH (v1809 can run on 8th gen up to 10th gen Intel hardware) NUC10i3FNH is too "new" or recent to run on an old Win10 version like v1607 and only the LTSB 2016 edition of 1607 is still supported by MS
  8. the Win10 v1809 "V2" ISOs had build 17763.379 (KB4489899 cumulative update integrated) released back in late March 2019 - almost 6 months after the first release of 1809 (build 17763.1) in early Oct. 2018 and was first re-released around mid-Nov. 2018 as build 17763.107 (KB4464455) and then re-re-released as V2 several months later with 17763.379. I know this because I downloaded the 1809 V2 ISOs myself back then around the end of March 2019.
  9. I much prefer running Firefox ESR versions on Win7 and I want to update manually whenever I want and not on Firefox's schedule I disable auto-updates for Firefox using a policies.json file that contains "DisableAppUpdate": true
  10. what are the hardware device IDs for these devices, mjdbb1? use this site on how to do this: https://www.wikihow.com/Find-Hardware-ID this Realtek audio driver is several years old - here's a more up-to-date version like v6.0.8821.1 for Win7 (install or update thru Device Manager and reboot OR use the setup.exe file to install/update the audio driver and restart the computer afterwards)
  11. don't even bother trying to figure it out, forjonny I too won't even try either MS will release another 2004 build next Tue. July 14 that could be a little more stable - maybe MS will release a "refreshed" 2004 ISO in late July that will include the July cumulative update for 2004
  12. oh well, I guess it's tough luck when using v1607 or LTSB 2016 on there NUC10i3FNH has 10th gen Intel core hardware and there's a very slim chance it may work with an old Win10 version maybe someday you should upgrade to either v1809 or LTSC 2019 as that one supports extension INFs and 1809 is stable now than it was first released back in Oct. 2018 (and supports 10th gen Intel hardware) I've ditched the 1607 version as the recent cumulative updates like KB4561616 & KB4567517 take about a full hour to install (takes really long time and their updates are huge) on the other hand, the recent updates for 1809 like KB4561608 & KB4567513 take about half an hour to install and are much smaller also the Intel Display Audio driver is only used when connecting an HD monitor that has a built-in audio system with an HDMI cable to an HDMI port (that I know from experience)
  13. can you revert back from 2004 to an earlier release like 1903 or 1909, forjonny? version 2004 right now has so many problems that MS has to fix - it's currently buggy
  14. the Intel HDA SST (or ISST) driver for Realtek HD Audio requires Win10 v1709 or higher - won't install on v1607 w/out modding the INF files. Intel designed newer ISST drivers that way. open the AUD_Win10_64_6.0.8791.1.zip file in 7zip and inspect the \AUD_Win10_6.0.1.8791\IntelHDASST\ folder. the INF files (like IntcAudioBus.inf, IntcSST.inf, etc.) have the following section: change "NTAMD64.10.0...16299" to "NTAMD64.10.0", save changes, disable driver signature enforcement and then try to install the ISST driver do expect some weird error messages (if they occur) during the install edit - btw, the Realtek HD Audio 6.0.8791.1 driver for Intel NUC10i3FNH is in Universal Audio Driver (UAD) format and not in the bigger, traditional (non-UAD) format like the one found on Realtek's web site but the Realtek audio driver on the Realtek site is very old.
  15. this MS Certificate Authority 2011 certificate is still available for download from MS support article 3149737
