Windows 10: A Quick Win7 question. Solved

    A Quick Win7 question.


    Yeah, I know I probably should post this in Sevenforums but.... lol, I've forgotten my password for it and never go there anymore, plus I know a lot of you still use it if only in a VM. So...

    My brother in law is installing 7 on a new machine he's building for a friend. His friend bought the parts and just gave them to him. My question : he wants to install it (7) on a Nvme drive. The drive was NOT seen by Win7 to install to, so he's installing it on a spinner and wants to try cloning/transferring it to the Nvme drive after the updates are finished. Will he be able to do that? I THOUGHT 7 didn't have the capability to be installed on a Nvme or to take advantage of the speed etc. Anyway..... will he be wasting his time to even try?

    An issue with Win7 and older versions is the new hardware has become "too good" for them. The first requirement is for the BIOS to recognize the drive so Windows knows what it has to work with.

    Install the nvme drivers into boot.wim and install.wim.
    Might need usb3 drivers also.
