I) Preparing the Intel UHD video driver

A) Make sure you have another computer where you can use a Windows 7 installation or a virtual machine with Windows 7 x86 of x64 with .NET Framework at least version 4.0 installed (you can install latest version to be sure), remember that on a virtual machine x86 installs faster and works also faster. Also make sure you have an internet connection on this Windows 7 installation.


B) Modify Intel HD video driver to work with Intel UHD video cards

1) Go to "Device Manager" under the installed Windows 10 or 8/8.1 on the target machine, look under "Display adapters", double-click on your "Intel UHD" device, go to "Details" and under "Property" select "Hardware Ids" and look vor "DEV_XXXX", where "XXXX" are the specific numbers for the device you have (for "Intel UHD 620" this is "DEV_5917"). Note down these numbers.

2) Download the Intel HD graphics driver version 21.20.16.4839 from here: https://www.station-...id=3256&lang=enand extract the contents.

3) Go to the extracted files, enter folder "Graphics" and delete the "igdlh.cat" catalog file.

4) Open "igdlh64.inf" with "Notepad" and search for the following path:

iKBLULTGT1     =   "Intel® HD Graphics 610"
iKBLULTGT2     =   "Intel® HD Graphics 620"
iKBLULTGT2F    =   "Intel® HD Graphics 620"

and add this afterwards (Note: this is for Intel UHD 620 graphic card which has "Intel® UHD Graphics 620" as a name, if you have another video card, just use the name you have in "Device manager", where you looked earlier):
iKBLULTGT2R    =   "Intel® UHD Graphics 620"

The section should look like this:
; KBL
iKBLULTGT1     =   "Intel® HD Graphics 610"
iKBLULTGT2     =   "Intel® HD Graphics 620"
iKBLULTGT2F    =   "Intel® HD Graphics 620"
iKBLULTGT2R    =   "Intel® UHD Graphics 620"

9) Save the changes to "igdlh64.inf" file.

10) Download "HxD Hex Editor" from here https://mh-nexus.de/...loads/HxDen.zip, extract the archive and run the program.

11) Open "igdumdim32.dll", go to "Search" -> "Replace", add this "83 F8 13 75 43 F7 42 04 00 00 00 02 74 3A" without the quotes to the "Search for" field and "83 F8 13 75 43 F7 42 04 00 00 00 02 90 90" without the quotes to the "Replace with" field, select "Datatype" as "Hex-values", select "Search direction" as "All" and click "Replace all", then save the changes.

12) Open "igdumdim64.dll" go to "Search" -> "Replace", add this "01 76 17 83 F9 13 75 44 F7 42 04 00 00 00 02 74 3B" without the quotes to the "Search for" field and "01 76 17 83 F9 13 75 44 F7 42 04 00 00 00 02 90 90" without the quotes to the "Replace with" field, select "Datatype" as "Hex-values", select "Search direction" as "All" and click "Replace all", then save the changes.


C) Sign the modified Intel UHD video driver:

1) Download Windows Driver Kit Version 7.1.0 from here: https://download.mic...K_EN_7600_1.ISO(works for both x86 and x64 version of Windows 7) and install it.

2) Download Microsoft Windows SDK from here: https://download.mic...MSDK_EN_DVD.iso(x86) or https://download.mic...SDKX_EN_DVD.iso (x64) and install it.

3) Create a folder named "DriverCert" in the "C:\" drive of your computer with running Windows 7. Inside that folder, create a folder named "Intel". You would obtain the following path "C:\DriverCert\Intel".

4) Copy the "Graphics" folder from the Intel UHD modified driver you modified earlier to the following path "C:\DriverCert\Intel", so that you obtain the following path "C:\DriverCert\Intel\Graphics".


5) Create a certificate using the following commands entered line by line in an elevated (Run as administrator) "Command prompt" window, when asked input "12345" (twice) as password:

a) for Windows 7 x86:
cd C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1\bin
makecert -r -sv C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.pvk -n CN="Intel" C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.cer
cert2spc C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.cer C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.spc
pvk2pfx -pvk C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.pvk -pi 12345 -spc C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.spc -pfx C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.pfx -po 12345

B) for Windows 7 x64:
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1\bin
makecert -r -sv C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.pvk -n CN="Intel" C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.cer
cert2spc C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.cer C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.spc
pvk2pfx -pvk C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.pvk -pi 12345 -spc C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.spc -pfx C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.pfx -po 12345


6) Create a catalog file for the Intel UHD modified driver, using the following commands entered line by line in an elevated (Run as administrator) "Command prompt" window:
cd C:\WinDDK\7600.16385.1\bin\selfsign
inf2cat.exe /driver:"C:\DriverCert\Intel\Graphics" /os:7_X64 /verbose


7) Sign the Intel UHD modified driver using the earlier created certificate, using the following commands entered line by line in an elevated (Run as administrator) "Command prompt" window:

a) for Windows 7 x86:
cd C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1\Bin
signtool sign /f C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.pfx /p 12345 /t http://timestamp.ver...ts/timstamp.dll/v C:\DriverCert\Intel\Graphics\igdlh.cat

B) for Windows 7 x64:
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1\Bin
signtool sign /f C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.pfx /p 12345 /t http://timestamp.ver...ts/timstamp.dll/v C:\DriverCert\Intel\Graphics\igdlh.cat


8) Copy the "Intel" folder containing the signed Intel UHD modified driver from "C:\DriverCert" on a second USB stick/external HDD/secondary HDD on the target computer.


D) Add the earlier created certificate on the Windows 7 installation so you can extract it afterwards from the registry.

1) In Start Menu, search for "mmc.exe", run it, go to "File" -> "Add/remove snap-ins", on the left column select "Certificates", then click "Add >", select "Computer account" and click "Next >", leave "Local computer" as selected, click "Next >", then "OK".

2) Then go to "Console Root" -> "Certificates (Local computer)", then right-click on "Trusted Publishers" and go to "All tasks" -> "Import". Then when you have to choose the certificate path, just browse to "C:\DriverCert" and choose "myDrivers.cer" file, then leave the selected "Place all certificates in the following store - Trusted Publishers" then choose "Finish".

3) Then go to "Console Root" -> "Certificates (Local computer)" -> "Trusted Publishers", you should see there on the right column your certificate named "Intel". Double-click on it and go to "Details", then look for "Thumbprint" and leave that open.\


E) Extract the certificate from registry and create the necessary files for the installation.

1) In Start Menu, search for "regedit.exe", run it, then go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\TrustedPublisher\Certificates" and there you should find a key (looks like a folder on the left column) which has the exact numbers and letters as the thumbprint from earlier.

2) Now right-click that key (folder) and choose export, save the .reg file as "Cert1.reg".

3) Edit the "Cert1.reg" file and replace the following path "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE" with "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\loaded_SOFTWARE" and save it. Make a duplicate (copy) of this "Cert1.reg" file and name it "Cert2.reg". Edit "Cert2.reg" file and replace the following path "SystemCertificates\TrustedPublisher" with "SystemCertificates\ROOT" and save the file

4) Copy these "Cert1.reg" and "Cert2.reg" files on a second USB stick/external HDD/secondary HDD on the target computer.



II) Preparing the Windows 7 installation files on a second USB stick/external HDD/secondary HDD on the target computer

A) Verify that you have copied the earlier modified and signed Intel UHD driver and the 2 registry files of the certificate to the second USB stick/external HDD/secondary HDD on the target computer. If you didn't, do that now.


B) Extract the Windows 7 x64 "install.wim" from any Windows 7 x64 ISO of your choice.

1) Use any ISO file viewer and open any Windows 7 x64 ISO of your choice.

2) Extract "install.wim" from the "sources" folder within the ISO file to the second USB stick/external HDD/secondary HDD on the target computer.


C) Download "Unlocker" application from here: https://softpedia-se...ocker 1.9.2.msiand copy it to the second USB stick/external HDD/secondary HDD on the target computer.


D) Copy the "bootmgfw.efi" to the second USB stick/external HDD/secondary HDD on the target computer.

1) If you have access to a Windows 10 installation, you find the file here "C:\Windows\Boot\EFI\bootmgfw.efi".

2) If you don't have access to a Windows 10 installation, you have to extract "sources\install.wim" from the ISO image of any Windows 10 installation kit, then open the "install.wim" with 7-Zip and you will find the file here: "\1\Windows\Boot\EFI\bootmgfw.efi".



III) Preparing the bootable Mini Windows 10 UEFI USB.

A) For this, you need an USB stick that will get formated to GPT format (you will lose all current data on it) so that it will boot on UEFI.

B) Download "Medicat Mini Windows 10 NAKED" ISO from here: https://drive.google...mNOF8pe6na/view

C) Download "ISO2Disc" application from here: https://softpedia-se...O2DiscSetup.exeand install it.

D) Insert the USB stick, check which drive letter it gets, then run "ISO2Disc", browse for the "Medicat Mini Windows 10 NAKED" ISO file, then select "Burn fo USB Flash Drive", verify that the correct drive letter of the USB stick and the size is correctly chosen, if not, choose the correct USB, then select "Partition Style" as "GPT" and click "Start Burn".



IV) Installing Windows 7 x64 procedure on the target computer

A) Boot the target computer from the created bootable Mini Windows 10 UEFI USB.

B) Partition the install HDD/SSD using diskpart from an elevated (run as administrator) "Command Prompt" window, remember to backup all data first, this will delete everything, using the following commands (where N is your choice for the install HDD/SSD, be careful when choosing):
list disk
select disk N
clean
convert gpt
create partition efi size=100
format quick fs=fat32
assign letter="S"
create partition primary
format quick fs=ntfs
assign letter="W"
exit

C) Let's assume that your second USB stick/external HDD/secondary HDD on the target computer (where you have already copied all the necessary files) has the "Z" drive letter, so just replace the "Z" drive letter in all the following commands with the one of your particular case.


D) Install Windows 7 x64 using DISM and apply EFI boot partition from the installation

1) Apply the "install.wim" image from your second USB stick/external HDD/secondary HDD on the target computer to the "W" partition you created earlier, using the following command entered in an elevated (Run as administrator) "Command prompt" window:
DISM.exe /Apply-Image /ImageFile:Z:\install.wim /Index:1 /ApplyDir:W:\

2) After the process is completed, apply EFI boot partition from the installation, using the following command entered in an elevated (Run as administrator) "Command prompt" window:
BCDboot.exe W:\Windows /s S:


E) Install the modified and signed Intel UHD driver from your second USB stick/external HDD/secondary HDD on the target computer to the "W" partition you created earlier, using the following command entered in an elevated (Run as administrator) "Command prompt" window:
dism /Image:W:\ /Add-Driver /Driver:Z:\Intel /Recurse /forceunsigned

F) Disable the legacy vga (which is incompatible with UEFI) from the registry of the installed Windows 7 from the "W" partition you created earlier, using the following commands entered line by line in an elevated (Run as administrator) "Command prompt" window:
set Services=HKLM\loaded_SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services
reg.exe load HKLM\loaded_SYSTEM W:\Windows\system32\config\system
reg.exe add "%Services%\Vga" /f /t REG_DWORD /v "Start" /d 4
reg.exe add "%Services%\VgaSave" /f /t REG_DWORD /v "Start" /d 4
reg.exe unload HKLM\loaded_SYSTEM


G) Delete legacy vga driver file (which is incomaptible with UEFI) completely from the installed Windows 7 from the "W" partition you created earlier

1) Install "Unlocker" by running "Unlocker1.9.2.exe" from your second USB stick/external HDD/secondary HDD on the target computer.

2) Using "Windows Explorer", go to "W:\Windows\system32\driver" and look for "vga.sys", right-click on it, and choose "Unlocker". A window appears and under "No action" menu, choose "Delete" and then click "OK". Check manually that the file is deleted. You have to use this method, because you can't normally delete "vga.sys" due to security permissions of the installation.


H) Using "Windows Explorer", copy "bootmgfw.efi" from your second USB stick/external HDD/secondary HDD on the target computer to the following path: "S:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot", overwriting the already existing file.

I) Disable legacy vga (which is incompatible with UEFI) from the EFI boot, using the following commands entered line by line in an elevated (Run as administrator) "Command prompt" window:
bcdedit /store "s:\efi\microsoft\boot\bcd" /set {default} bootlog yes
bcdedit /store "s:\efi\microsoft\boot\bcd" /set {default} bootstatuspolicy IgnoreAllFailures
bcdedit /store "s:\efi\microsoft\boot\bcd" /set {default} novesa on
bcdedit /store "s:\efi\microsoft\boot\bcd" /set {default} quietboot on


J) Add the Intel UHD video driver certificate to the Windows 7 installation.

1) Mount the registry of the Windows 7 installation from the "W" drive, using the following command entered in an elevated (Run as administrator) "Command prompt" window:
reg.exe load HKLM\loaded_SOFTWARE C:\Windows\system32\config\software

2) Merge the "cert1.reg" and "cert2.reg" files one by one, by double-clicking them from your second USB stick/external HDD/secondary HDD on the target computer. You should also see a confirmation that the process is successful.

3) Unmount the registry of the Windows 7 installation from the "W" drive, using the following command entered in an elevated (Run as administrator) "Command prompt" window:
reg.exe unload HKLM\loaded_SOFTWARE



V) Reboot and remove all USB sticks from your computer. You should only get a black screen, the installation might take a while, then it should reboot automatically and then you should get video input when "Setup is checking for you system performance", then everything should go as normal.

It's a hit or miss. Hardware, UEFI and drivers differs.
Boot errors debug is very difficult without vga drivers.
In general, don't do this. It's a experimental last approach.

There are different nitro 5 gaming laptop.
Which one do you use? Can you list the full model name?

Which HardwareID matches the graphic card?
Does 419.67-desktop-win8-win7-64bit-international-whql\Display.Driver\nv_dispi.inf contains your Hardware ID?
http://us.download.n...tional-whql.exe


Copy and paste the text to a cmd file. Write this to a USB drive.
Adjust the graphic card drivers.
e.g. extract the graphic card drivers to \419.67-desktop-win8-win7-64bit-international-whql\Display.Driver\nv_dispi.inf
And use 419.67-desktop-win8-win7-64bit-international-whql\Display.Driver\nv_dispi.inf at the cmd file.

Boot a Windows 8/10 PE, presss shift F10.

Run
diskpart
list disk

Remember the disk number,
If there is one hard disk only, it's disk 0 most likely.

run notepad, open the cmd file.
adjust "echo select disk N". Replace N with the disk number.

Adjust "D:\W7_x64\sources\install.wim" to current path and file name.

Be aware, "clean" cleans the hard disk. Existing files are deleted.
Use a testing disk.

Run the cmd file.

Be aware, it's not supported by the manufacturer.
Booting may work or fail.

This is my experience on installing Win7 on Coffe lake CPU (on MBR partitioned SSD): https://msfn.org/boa...coffee-lake-pc/

 

My Win7 ISO is uptated opto Dic/2017 before all the bad updates about Meltdown and Spectre, See: http://reboot.pro/to...sb/#entry207826

 

And installed using a WinPE and WinNTSetup: https://msfn.org/boa...391-392-beta-3/

 

AFAIK Win7 x64 can't boot in UEFI if Secure Boot is enabled, you need to disable it on your Bios, since you said you can't enable CSM, there is also a big chance your UEFI Bios may not let you disable Secure Boot.

 

There is no video driver for Intel UHD 630 and higher for Win7, and the driver for previous generation is HD Graphics 630 NOT UHD, I was able to install HD Graphics 630 but the OS do not load it, so unless you have other video card on your equipment forget it. And if you want it for gaming Video driver is mandatory.

 

But it seems your equipment has an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050, so there should be no problem once you install the Win7 drivers.

Okay thanks for the replies lads
Ill start with the man himself cdob

So I have an nitro 5 with an i5 8300h cpu and a gtx 1050, no ti one.
The link for the download you sent me never works, I also tried some other intel vga driver downloads and they also don't work too.
The intel gpu came up with 4 hardware ids


Now what do you mean by my graphics card hardaware id? And the directory of it?
But what gpu hardware id should I have it as? Cause if im doing a clean install then ill need to use the intel grapthics one since The gtx 1050 drivers will be gone.
Also the hard ware ids that come up looking nothing compared to the one you showed.

Now if im cleaning the pc, where am I ment to run the cmd file? do I type something in to run it on command promt? Cause you cant acces windows again to open note pad, unless you want me to change it on a different pc.




Replying to Alacran
I do indeed have secure boot disabled but the same issue continues.

Heres an picture of the hardware ids https://ibb.co/CnvTpGR
Also if you have discord to direct message me on the issue that would be SUPER

As I said my experience was a MBR install, by means of my updated Win7 and WinNTSetup, no additional drivers included on the install.esd, but AFAIK on UEFI it looks for VGA drivers and that may be the actual problem.

 

From your picture the UHD graphics 630 is the same Intel device I had and there is not anything compatible with it for win7, I solved this problem because I had and old GT 710 2 GB RAM on another PC and took it for the Coffe Lake.  So forget about Intel.

 

But since you have a gtx 1050 you should not have problems, cdob gave you a link and istructions on his post.  

 

 

Which HardwareID matches the graphic card?
Does 419.67-desktop-win8-win7-64bit-international-whql\Display.Driver\nv_dispi.inf contains your Hardware ID?
http://us.download.n...tional-whql.exe

 

You need to post nVidia Hardware ID not Intel, there is not anything available for Win7 for that Intel UHD graphics 630 I lived that problem.

 

This download is from nVidia, and download link is working fine, download it and follow his instructions. He's a very knowledgeable and friendly guy.

I downloaded the driver from cdob link and opened it with 7zip, on ListDevices.txt appears the gtx 1050, so this driver is good for your graphic card. Just follow cdob instructions or ask him to please make more clear for you something you don't understand.  Good luck.

When ever I try to install the link, it always keeps coming up and saying its incompatible with this version of windows. Should I just install an normal version of a gtx 1050 driver, also I have uninstall the intel hud drivers.

Yes it is an .exe (it is an auto extractable compressed file) but you can open it with 7zip and expand it on a folder it is then 1.21 GB and there look all the files and folders into the .exe

 

On folder Display.Driver\nv_dispi.inf you can find:

NVIDIA_DEV.1C81 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050"
NVIDIA_DEV.1C82 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti"
NVIDIA_DEV.1C83 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050"

Okay so now do I just replace Dism.exe /Image:W:\ /Add-Driver /Driver:D:\Drivers\C8HM70\Intel_Graphics\x64\Graphics\igdlh64.inf

 with 419.67-desktop-win8-win7-64bit-international-whql\Display.Driver\nv_dispi.inf

it has the id

Or  the part where it says Add-Driver must i put the hard ware id their?

adding these drivers to the isso and replaceing the install .wim file and boot.wim folder.


Okay so now do I just replace Dism.exe /Image:W:\ /Add-Driver /Driver:D:\Drivers\C8HM70\Intel_Graphics\x64\Graphics\igdlh64.inf
 with 419.67-desktop-win8-win7-64bit-international-whql\Display.Driver\nv_dispi.inf

.
Yes, set full path to the nv_dispi.inf file.

However: did you include proper Nvidia graphic card drivers to the install.wim?
Then delete the Add-Driver line.

Intel dosn't offers Windows 7 drivers for the UHD 630. No, don't use the Intel graphic card.
Disable the onboard (onchip) graphic card at UEFI.

Use the Nvidia grapic card only.

419.67 nv_disp.inf
%NVIDIA_DEV.1C81% = Section132, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C81
%NVIDIA_DEV.1C82% = Section132, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C82
%NVIDIA_DEV.1C83% = Section132, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C83
NVIDIA_DEV.1C81 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050"
NVIDIA_DEV.1C82 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti"
NVIDIA_DEV.1C83 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050"

Im curious:
do you use a PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C81, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C83 or another PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_* graphic card?

Boot a Win 10 PE:
A default Windows 10 installation DVD is sufficient. Use a addional windows 7 install.wim disk.
Boot a Windows 10 installation DVD.
Or a appropiate Windows 10 installation USB disk. Use the same or a addional windows 7 install.wim disk.
Press shift F10 at gui installation selection.

Do you use a another hard disk?
Did you backup existing Windows 10?

Maybe this way can be easier, with no need to edit/modify the install.wim/esd, I have used this feature for installing WIFI drivers located on a folder, but haven't tried it in a case like this:

 

WinNTSetup has an option to install drivers (*.inf files) during installing the OS, see my attached picture, sorry it is in my lang but you can use it as a guide and when running WinNTSetup you will see it in English or in your lang if available.

 

Set full path to the Display.Driver folder.

Okay so responding to cdob.

So i dont get what you mean by get rid of the add driver part, do you mean Dism.exe /Image:W:\ /Add-Driver /Driver:D:\Drivers\C8HM70\Intel_Graphics\x64\Graphics\igdlh64.inf Replace the part where it says add driver with an nivida driver?

 

Because i just replaced that completley with the nv_dispi.inf directory

I have the bottom part down as this

rem include graphics driver
419.67-desktop-win8-win7-64bit-international-whql\Display.Driver\nv_dispi.inf

 

I have a gtx 1050 PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C8D&REV_A1 i dont know if thats exsactly right so ima just give you a picture of all the hardware ids

 

Now onto the next part the install .wim

Alacran, i dont know how you managed to bring up that window, but i started a normal windows install, and i tried adding the drivers on it and it comes up with this https://postimg.cc/VSFW6YBX

 

However: did you include proper Nvidia graphic card drivers to the install.wim?

Havent got a clue on adding the grapthics to them

 

419.67 nv_disp.inf
%NVIDIA_DEV.1C81% = Section132, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C81
%NVIDIA_DEV.1C82% = Section132, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C82
%NVIDIA_DEV.1C83% = Section132, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C83
NVIDIA_DEV.1C81 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050"
NVIDIA_DEV.1C82 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti"
NVIDIA_DEV.1C83 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050"

 

Where am i meant to add all of this? Cause i think i only need just the nviida gtx 1050 line, plus i have

Section132, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C83

 

Now by disks you probably or dvd files you probably  just mean usbs, because the laptop i have doesnt have a optical drive.

 

 

Boot a Win 10 PE:
A default Windows 10 installation DVD is sufficient. Use a additional windows 7 install.wim disk.
Boot a Windows 10 installation DVD.
Or a appropiate Windows 10 installation USB disk. Use the same or a addional windows 7 install.wim disk.
Press shift F10 at gui installation selection.

How exsacly do you mean? Have both usbs in the laptop? And how am i meant to also use the cmd text file?

 

 

 

Also heres the hardware ids https://postimg.cc/DS0Ss7Tq

Nvm, i have found the tool that lets me add the drivers to the install .wim alacran.

It wants me to mount the drivers, but to do that i have to mount the install.wim file witch always keeps coming up as an error.\

Now i am able to mount a wim file, how ever when its mounted and i go to add the drivers it keeps saying that the install.wim file witch is mounted is not..

PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C8D&CC_030000
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C8D&CC_0300

There is another .inf file:
419.67-desktop-win8-win7-64bit-international-whql\Display.Driver\nvaci.inf

%NVIDIA_DEV.1C8D.1265.1025% = Section087, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C8D&SUBSYS_12651025
NVIDIA_DEV.1C8D.1265.1025 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050"

This is a desktop driver. May work or fail at the notebook. Escpecial with the Iitel hybrid graphic card.
Did you disabled the Intel graphic card?

Overall Windows 7 is very doubtful at given hardware.

I don't use nt lite.

Yep, i got completely rid of it, all thats left is microsft basic render driver, and i install the windows 10 gtx 1050 driver.

If you could please go over how to add the drivers to the install.wim file, like where they go

and
Boot a Win 10 PE:
A default Windows 10 installation DVD is sufficient. Use a additional windows 7 install.wim disk.
Boot a Windows 10 installation DVD.
Or a appropiate Windows 10 installation USB disk. Use the same or a addional windows 7 install.wim disk.
Press shift F10 at gui installation selection.

More in detail, like steps nearly, that would be EPIC.
Im completley confused how you mean i run the cmd file, like where do i run it? When am i meant to and get it onto the windows 7 while the things in PE.

Ntlite is a software that lets you view what drivers are missing from isos, it lets me add the gtx 1050 drivers from the directory, and lets me add them to the install.wim setup things. But maybe i should just do it your way just so it will work better.

There are no Intel graphic card drivers.

However, the Intel grapic card is active still. Can you disable it at UEFI settings?
The Intel graphic card should not appear at Win 10 device manager at all.

I guess, the Intel graphic card goes first, the Nvidia second.
There are no Intel Windows 7 graphic card drivers.
If you boot without vga.sys, the Intel graphic card won't be activated. Black screen.
Adding Nvidia graphic card drivers won't help, they are no active because of missing Intel drivers. black screen still.

Use Windows 10 at given laptop.
