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.

Everything done perfectly. The only thing I saw is that the "bootmgfw.efi" file you use has the same size as the one that gets overwritten. Did you get this file from a Windows 10 ISO as I said? Anyway, try with the file I used from my original Windows 10 on my Acer laptop: https://openload.co/...6g/bootmgfw.efi

 

And after the reboot, you must wait again for a while with black screen, the installation continues this way and only after a while you will get "checking system performance" on the screen. Do not power off the laptop manually, leave it alone for a long while.

 

I don't know if your efi file is wrong, just use mine and further do it as you did, all commands are working fine (even if the one with set services doesn't have any confirmation, it really works otherwise the following lines would not succeed). Then after reboot leave it alone for a while, it can take a long time until it passes the black screen. I have a SSD and it takes long, you have a HDD and it would take longer.

 

Hopefully it works, otherwise I honestly have no idea what we could try!

Ill try with the one given, i used the boot mgfw from the slimed install.wim.

That means the install.wim is from a Windows 7,so the efi file too. That's the problem I think, my laptop didn't boot at all with the efi from Windows 7. So I used the efi from Windows 10, based on other guides which showed how to boot a Windows 7 installation via USB by using the efi from 10.

Quote from my guide:
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".

It's still weird that you get a reboot, normally with efi from 7 it won't boot at all, with vga not deleted and not disabled in bcd I got bcd error screen. Maybe your laptop reboots automatically after a while or simply pressing enter would do that, maybe you did that.

You can also find the file on the Mini win10 usb in efi\boot folder, but it is smaller than mine in size, so maybe it's another version of something. I grabbed the efi file from an up-to-date Windows 10 that I had stock on my Acer.

Anyway try with my efi file, I hope it works. Let me know, hehe

I tried with the efi file, it still just reboots, and has no device checking screen.

I tried with rst optane, and it doesnt crash, now it might possibley work with that sata mode, how ever i let it ran on that mode for a while and it didnt reboot.

How long for you does it take the machine to reboot?

When im using the method that doesnt say checking device performence it takes around 8 minutes to reboot.

Im going to try with the boot mfgw file again, ill try on the intel file that doesnt have the ibkl, and try again with the one that i just used.

If you could also share some of the certificates that would be cool, and some other files.

Just hope ost with optane works

This probaly might not work however, if i hooked up my monitor to the pc duing the installaion would i possibley get anything on my scree?

Only thing is i would need to add the drivers to the install, i could add the hdmi drivers using ntlite, but im not sure if this will work during the instalation.

I don't remember how long, but you can try to do smth else, just leave it working, or try overnight.

You said you managed to get checking device peerformance using one of the methods. Just use that method again with my efi file and be patient wait at least 30 minutes to be sure.

HDMI and external won't work, you can't get any video output with vga turned off, so there is no other way to do it.

I saw your video, you do everything fine, there's no need for my certificates. I could sent you the driver customized for uhd 630 and also signed, but it would be the same, you did everything perfectly.

Just use the method you used when you got checking performance and let it alone for at least 30 min after that.

Remember, after booting with black screen, you should hear the hdd working (also hdd led blinking if your laptop has one), then it should reboot and start again with black screen, then after a while you will get checking performance.

Sadly it didnt work.

I tried with the ikbl un added as i did before, and their stills no device checking performence. The only thing i managed to bring up is a selection where you can choose an operating system. You can pick 7 but the screen will go blank again. However you can press f8 and do some boot options.

I tried doing safe mode, and it freezes vga.pnp. Before when a while ago when i tried installing 7 via just a usb, trying to do it i tried the f8 options, and it would also freeze, i think its the same issue where you would try to normally boot windows 7 off a usb where the orbs would freeze. So it might all be the same driver issue.

If you have anything to update me on the situation please let me know.

Also so we could get more direct messages faster would you like to join my discord server? if you have a account.

Theirs also this site that cliams to have a 360 driver https://drp.su/en/de...s=windows-7-x64

I wonder what would happend if i fallowed your guide, but instead tried installing it with this. It might not work since theirs no ddl files.

Maybe what i should try is using the commands DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS TESTSIGNING ON  nointegritychecks ON set {default}

Just to see if it will make it work. I just put the commands in after ive done everything in the guide?

Or last solutiion, would it not be possible to install the uhd 630 modified driver, on a different pc (same hdd) get rid of vga.sys and put it back in the nitro 5? Also making sure that its uefi compatible.

I have further no idea.

You said you managed to get checking performance once. How did you do it?

If you install on a different pc, when you put the hdd back you'll get BSOD, because there will be another motherboard.

You can try testsigning, but for me didn't make any difference.

The intel driver might be fake written as for win7,there is no official driver for uhd series for win7. You have to use driver from hd series and modify as we did.

Wait a second, I reviewed your movie and I saw an error: the command "signtool sign /f C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.pfx /p 12345 /t http://timestamp.ver...ts/timstamp.dll/v C:\DriverCert\Intel\Graphics\igdlh.cat" has the "/v" with no space after "timstamp.dll", this is because this forum messes up the commands unless you use the code function, it should be:

signtool sign /f D:\DriverCert\myDrivers.pfx /p 12345 /t http://timestamp.verisign.com/scripts/timstamp.dll /v D:\DriverCert\Intel\Graphics\igdlh.cat

I don't know if this matters or not, you got sign successful, but maybe it's not correctly signed this way.

 

I also found some modified drivers form UHD 630, it seems some of the lines are different. Here you go, 2 versions: https://cloud.mail.r.../Htb1/UuxJoRqygand https://yadi.sk/d/MmU024D9OzAjgA . Remember you have to modify the 2 dlls, delete the catalog and sign the drivers just as you did for the other one, except you don't have to touch the inf file anymore, it's already been patched. The first one is our version, but in the inf I see different indexes, I would try this one first. The second is another newer version, maybe the dll files do not contain the same HEX data, but first I'll try the first one. Then if not working, try the 2nd one even if you can't modify the dll files. Try them, maybe this is it!

 

You don't have to use testmode, it doesn't matter, during installation you MUST have signed drivers, otherwise they are not used.

Ill be getting to work on first one, also the ddl files where already edited on the first one.

The command you sent for some reason always keeps coming up with error, when their is no space ddl and /v it works like this

signtool sign /f C:\DriverCert\myDrivers.pfx /p 12345 /t http://timestamp.ver.../timstamp.dll/vC:\DriverCert\Intel\Graphics\igdlh.cat

If still not working, edit the inf for each driver and instead of DEV_3E93 place your DEV_3E9B, then sign the driver.

I just tried again, it didnt work, however i realised something.

For all my attempts ive been using the command reg.exe load HKLM\loaded_SOFTWARE C:\Windows\system32\config\software

How ever ive always been using the command as W:\Windows\system32\config\software with the rest of the stuff

Do i need this as c to work? Because in my last attepmt it says it never can find the c partition, and theirs no c partitions coming up in file explorer.

W is good, you basically mount the registry of your installed Windows 7, which you have on W partition.

You said you succeded once (out of the many attempts) to get checking for performance on the screen. How did you do that?

Furthermore, I have no idea to suggest, unfortunately.

Im not exsactly sure. I think it was during the time i switched from using an normal windows 7 iso, and then switched over to the slimed one, maybe i did it with windows 7 boot mgfw, but ill try again with the slimmed version, mixing around the wim and boot file. I think i had xchi support enabled and fast boot.

Try these:

1) UHD 630 signed driver and certificate (I just made it with DEV_3E9B): https://drive.google...5CN5HUBupDdFyHH

I signed the driver with space between ".dll" and "/v" and I had no errors.
Win7 x64 Ultra Lite (2014 version I made myself, but it boots very very fast and is great to test): https://drive.google...OVVhUDNhMXJoWkE

The other March 2019 is a bit larger, because I also included speech support, touchscreen support and sensors that I need on my 2-in-1 laptop. This 2014 version works perfectly on a standard laptop.

 

Turn on xchi and use sata with optane. If not working, try different combinations. Also don't forget to use my efi file which is a Windows 10 efi file. If you get reboot, that's good, it means the driver is loaded, after reboot you have to wait very much until you get "checking device performance" (30min should be enough).

Indeed. It doesn't come up immediately, the installation is still busy installing first. Check a normal installation video on youtube to see how the install process goes. I said 30 minutes to be sure, it depends on the pc, how fast it installs.

But the fact that it reboots means that the video driver is loaded. When I first tried without certificate, it would never reboot, the screen would stay black and the fans running high, that with the slim version (which by default has automatically reboot disabled when blue screen occurs). You can hear the hdd with your ear on the laptop, if there is activity it means that it installs. Just let it alone for a while after it reboots, never force shut down by pressing power button, that messes the installation.

I tried using the uhd provided, and did everything like normal, using xchi for the sata mode or what ever it was called, and i kept on usb 3 support, it still wouldnt work, it reboots, i left it on over night, i came on and its still on a blank screen.

Ill try again but this time using rst with optane, but the only thing is that doesnt reboot.

If rst doesnt work, ill have to try using the ibkl, with as much combinations as possible.

So you used both my uhd driver and my certificate reg files? I have no idea further. Some users reported issues with uhd 610 (exclamation mark in device manager, that means driver is not loaded), but they conformed working with your version of uhd 630, DEV_3E9B. See here: https://www.win-raid...deo-driver.html. Here I got the 2 driver versions that I sent you earlier, maybe you can ask there for help. But they discuss about using the driver on an already installed version of Windows. Our situation is a bit different, but with the driver signed and certificate should work as normal.

Ill try contacting them to see if they can help too.

Im going to try again with rst with optane, ill leave the laptop for an while to see.

And ill try and use the un modified ikbl one again if rst is an fail.

I might also try and add hdmi drivers using ntlite to the install.wim just to see if that might change anything or give any video input.

Sadly rst with optane doesnt work either

It doesnt reboot, just stays blank, and the fan is very loud.

 

I tried using the unmodified ikbl line again using both bootmgf files and it still wouldn't  do anything for me.

 

Ive also contacted people on the fourm i hope ill get a message back

 

How ever i also noticed on that fourm that someone tried booting with the driver signed and it wouldn't not work for them. They needed to press f8 before booting and put use disable digitally signed drivers. I dont know if it will work but im going to try in both sata modes with the signed one just to see if it work,

 

Also i have another question im not sure if you can help me with,

 

Today i switched back to windows 8, 10 broke with its new update, do you know of any 8.1 uhd 630 driver? I tried an redit one it would never work.

I tried using ours again, i puted the same line from the qindoqs 7 section that has my dev number to the qindoqs 8.1 section. Still wont work.  Just so i can have the os temporaly till i get 7 working.

You suggested a great idea: if we could make the driver work in win8.1, then we could use the same formula for 7. I'll have a look these days and I will send you the same driver for 8.1. For 8.1 you also need secure boot off and also driver signing off with F8. Remember you have to go to device manager and update the driver manually, do not use the included setup of the driver. Tell me what message you get (or print screen could be good) when using the driver you made for 8.1 with secure boot off and driver signing verification off.

The guys from the other forum used the nonsigned version of the driver, therefore they had to use F8 option to disable driver verification. I succesfully installed w7 using my method on Acer Spin 5 machine, which has no legacy support, so this is really possible.
