Issue Details

When I installed the system for the USRP 2974, I’m getting this error message:
Windows Installation cannot continue because a required driver could not be installed.


The CPU of the USRP-2974 is configured as Intel Core i7 6822EQ (2 GHz Quad Core). After 6 generations of CPU, Windows®7 installer source may not be integrated with USB3.0 and NVMe(Driver when the SSD is installed in the system) drivers.
To install Windows®7 on the previous generation of Skylake platform, you need to embed USB3 and NVMe drivers in the Windows®7  installer source. For more information about how to modify the Windows®7 installer source, consult Installing Windows® 7 via ASUS EZ Installer
