  1. How did you create your W7 media? Has this worked for you in the past?

    First thought would be a problem with the media.....
    Secondly, have you tried using USB 2.0? I've had better success installing W7 via 2.0.

  2. Created media using NLite application. It never worked. Installation never go further from "Windows is loading files" Screen. And i have connected both Keyboard & mouse connected to USB 2.0 (Black). It never worked using different media also.

  3. You have to use NLite to slipstream in the right usb dirvers into windows installation.

    You also have to figure out which usb ports on your board are from cpu chip and which are from motherboard, only the cpu ones will work.

    FYI you will not get windows updates with ryzen and are on your own to find drivers for the hardware because your mobo vendor will likely not list any drivers for windows 7.

    I did use NLite Software to create ISO.

  5. Understand that Windows 7 is NOT supported on that platform. Even if you do manage to somehow install it you will not have access to Windows Update.

    Ok, but are you certain you got the proper usb drivers slipstreamed in for your computer?
    You need to provide USB 3.0 drivers for windows 7, from what I can tell the USB 2.0 ports are all managed by the chipset and not the CPU and thus those wont work for installing windows 7.

    Ironically the most successful way of putting a 2009 OS on a 2017 computer is to use the same methods used in the 1990s. Use CD/DVD installation with a PS2 keyboard.

    Yeah. I have tried with SATA DVD & PS2 Keyboard. Still couldn't install. It get stuck at end of "Windows Loading files". I am suspecting the RAM. I ll replace it and update here.
