    Components of a Driver Package migration


    Hello, guys, I have an Hp-14af116 / AMD A8-7410 APU with AMD Radeon R5 Graphics 6GB running a Windows 7 in a Virtual Machine, but the performance is very poor so I decided to install windos7 dual boot with Windows 10 following the instructions on a post but I got an issue with the lack of drivers.

    So I reviewed HP & AMD site for Windows 7 IDE & USB3 drivers and they are not available for such OS, so I copied the c:\Windows\system32\Drivers (VM ones) to an USB but nothing is showed and after investigating I found that there're .inf & .cat files despite .sys ones and at this point I'm totally lost.

    My question is: can you tell me what files do I need to copy to my USB and where are they located besides c:\Windows\system32\Drivers?

    TIA for your help.

    Did you look in C: for a Folder about drivers? Some OEMs will have them there. An example: my Dell Vostro 1510 has a C:\Dell\Drivers Folder and a C:\Drivers Folder.

    But a question: did the Notebook come with Win10? If so, it's quite possible suitable drivers for Win7 were not created.
