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:

8) Then search for the following path:
; KBL
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.

Ill be uploading a video on my youtube channel, ill make sure to edit in credit for cannon king, and make it for kabby lake processors only, hopefully we can get the video views. Ill try getting it uploaded by tomorrow

WIth my driver it works only for kaby lake.

WIth canonkong's driver works for coffe lake (which you also have).

So you could do 2 separate videos.

I think you shoud acutally have all the drver links

https://yadi.sk/d/XbeizsLv1W3HsAthis was for the usbs, i installed them using mini 10, and then i had to update them in device manger

I went back to device manager and found the none working ethernet driver, get the compatible hardware id for it at the top, and searched it online, turns out the drivers from this site do work

 

https://drp.su/en/hw...s=windows-7-x64so myabe have a look around their and you might get something

 

Also for my wirseless internet they have a driver here as well https://drp.su/en/hw...=windows-10-x64Just install it the same way as the Ethernet

 

And the only last driver i had to then use was my gtx 1050 https://www.geforce.com/drivers, you dont need to modify it, just use it normally.

See if you go to intels site and install the wireless driver for windows 7 all you keep getting is no intel r device found, i dont know why that is.

 

I also have one more question in terms of drivers. Im trying to hook up my gamecube controller to dolphin, using the smash bros wii u port thingy, is their any drivers i would need to install for that?

 

If theirs any specific drivers ill be sure to send them to you

 

Ill have a search for blue touth drivers too

@ popoof22

 

I'm curious about what driver you used finally for UHD 630, including all modifications, catalog and signature, etc.

 

Could you upload it somewhere and post a link?

 

I don't require it since my install on SSD is with MBR partition and also I can enable CSM, so Win7 don't have any problem during install using its included generic video driver, but I think it can be very useful for other members or future readers of this topic.

 

I'm glad you finally make your equipment work on Win7 OS. Congratulations.

@alacran read the whole topic, use the driver from yadisk link with my guide, except you don't modify the driver anymore, you only need to sign it, then follow the guide.

@popoof22 the first link is NOT for usb, it's the canonkong's uhd video driver. Post the correct link for USB 3.0 driver

With my slimmed versions you will never get windows update to work. I really don't recommend it, it makes windows bigger and bigger and it will be slower. On my old laptop i'm using a version with updates until may 2016 and it's still working great, no issues.

Wufuc takes care of some drivers to work, without it they won't.

Is their any to get them to work? Saves the time of installing a new iso. All i just need is the secuirty updates.

Maybe i just need to install sp1.

If i do it might be a good idea to install server 2008, cause it can provide me more, it works on vista but not sure on 7

It says i was able to install KB4495606 and a secuirty update too

if perhaps say i wanted to switch the ios version is their any way to do so without losing my data? Cant get the os installed with the part where you choice your drive and upgrade, dont think just applying the image again would work either.

Don't make confusion between our CPUs. So be careful when you make the tutorial videos that my method is for Kaby Lake and yours (my guide with special uhd 630 driver) is for Coffee Lake.

You have a Coffee Lake (H series, that means 3rd generation Coffee Lake), not a Kaby Lake: https://en.wikichip....ore_i5/i5-8300h

I have a Kaby Lake (R series, this is a 2nd generation Kaby Lake): https://en.wikichip....ore_i7/i7-8550u

I am just a tad bit consider about my secuirty on the slimmed version now.

 

What is the easyiest way to get all my data from this version to the normal version? Because i have a good amount of stuff on here now.

 

I could install it on a different partition, and then when its installed i could just copy all the stuff from this pc, every thing in the users folder and programs folder and app data and all that.

Use partition magic or something similar to divide the hdd in multiple partitions. Then move all data to 2nd partition. Then using our guide do not clean the hdd using diskpart. Only mount EFI partition as S: and then just format them maintaining the existing file system. Then you already have an empty C drive for windows and an empty S drive for the EFI, then follow the guide. Meanwhile you have everything sitting in D.

If you ever plan to reinstall, when creating the first partition with ntfs you can specify "size=" in MB, so 20GB in MB would be 20x1024+1=20481MB, always use this formula to get perfectly rounded size, otherwise you get 19,9GB.

Easier is using external hdd, backup what you need and start over.

Further you cannot just move installed apps and stuff from one installation to another. Won't work.

I forgot to mention something very important. And explains why i was confused in the comments.

When i got 7 to work, i used a the slimmed version and the driver from cannonking just how it was, i didnt modify anything.

 

I am trying now on a clean boot with the larger normal versions of 7 and they just will not install. They are coming up as the same issue as last time. Rebooting but just stays on black screen.

 

Slimmed version will reboot fast, only takes 5 minutes for it, and will then be on a completely blank screen for just a minute, then the screen will get power and then it will say checking device performance.

 

I believe the issue is maybe because their old, what i might try doing is using the newer full 2018 ones and see if they work. Because of right now only the slimmed version is working for me.

Yes, that may be the cause, because some updates would take care of some issues. Always use recent versions with updates integrated, do not use outdated versions. I always use recent versions and further never use windows update.

Use this: https://www.teamos-h...-team-os.76902/. This is what I used as source for the slimmed version. All updates till March 2019.

So i retested, the only two versions i can find to be installed is the slimmed, and i got an ultimate version from microfosft witch has updates from august last year.

 

I tried with the driver how it was, and how we did it in the guide but it didnt effect anything for me, Home premium, Home Basic, Professinal, didnt try enterprise, or all in one, would not work.

It only seems that ultimate seems to be working. Hopfulley ill be able to do some guide to get ultimate to professinal for the extra 3 years of secuirty updates with my volume license.

Nice, but remember using Windows Update destroys your installation in terms of disk usage and performance. Whenever you install an update, it makes a backup copy so you basically have both (unupdated and updated) of some files. This increases disk usage unnecesarry because come on why would you uninstall an update? So it is better to have an ISO with updates untill present and never use Windows Update because come on you are not a vital company that would lose billions of dollars due to a security breach. I'm more than an average Windows user and I still use my selfmade Windows version which has updates untill May 2016. I've never had any problems. When it's really time to reinstall simply make yourself or download an iso with the most recent updates included and you're good to go for another long while. Trust me, I don't speak just like that.

Eh, im not the biggest on loading speeds so im okay. My last laptop toke 40 minutes eatch time just to get started.
See i wouldnt do that with all the updates just up to one point, as it would be annoying to reinstall the iso espically in our situation. It may run okay for you but theirs also slight chances that trojans can get on their.

Honestley i hope moderen micorosft dies in a fire, and finnaly realeases a new version of windows. Witch has themes like 7 did.So that the people who maybe feel home sick from xp can get an offical made proper theme. Not no crappy classic shell stuff. And gives you controll back over your pc and is like an operating system, not a service.
