Good morning guys

I'm trying create a new custom image with Windows 7 because the image that we are using is old and is impossible to work with new workstation that have Updated Hardware like NVMe Disk, Skylake and also USB 3.0. When i tried to install Windows i was unable to start the installation because i miss usb 3.0 driver. i tried to integrate the USB driver with dism(into boot.wim file) and i was able to start the installation but the system restart and when it needs to create the User i lost again mouse and Keybords and the NVMe SSD disk not recognized.

Basically i have downloaded the last version of the Windows 7 ISO with all the updated(march 2016?) released by Dell and i finished the installation. i Also found all the other drivers even if the workstations were not officially support windows 7 but only windows 8.1 and windows 10.

but i I have some doubt:
  • The custom image that I'm actually using at the end of its installation run a script that disable some services and some Feature using the DISM utility. Disabling Windows Feature it is not so fast. So what i would like to understand if it makes sense to prepare a new image disabling services/features(one time) and then run e sysprep? Or sysprep reset everything so even Feature and Services and the script has to be run everytime i install the custom image in order to disable again the Feature/Service?
  • The other question is related about the installation of the newer workstion as i told before. From What i understand sysprep remove all customer driver. I would like to prepare the image starting by the image create with the newer workstation without removing the custom driver that i laboriously found. So i hoped to be able to install older and newer workstation with the new custom image without becoming crazy. I know i can add driver also later with DISM but i would be easier....
Tanks for any Help

I was having the same issue and found the following in HP's forum:

 found out that Intel removed USB 2.0 chipset support from the Skylake chipset. 

 

This means that normal USB installs for windows will not work.   

 

The Microsoft Windows ISO doesn't have the native USB 3.0 drivers either, and that is why your USB KB and mouse go dead.

 

So you have to add the USB 3.0 drivers into the Windows ISO.   

 

Intel came through on this one.  They have a utility that does all the work for you.  

 

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25476/Windows-7-USB-3-0-Creator-Utility

 

Run this and point to your USB Installation media and hopefully, W7 will install.

--------------

Be sure and read the "Read Me" file on the download page; it will refer you to a Microsoft tool that you will need also.

It appears that this is working from many people, but it did not work for me.  Perhaps I needed the newer build of Windows 7.

Probably i made some mistake because i had injected these Intel Usb3.0 Driver into the boot.wim of my Windows Image and nothing has changed.



I had to inject into install.wim files?
