Unable to Install windows 7 on HP Z440 – Intel Xeon E5-1630v4 – ZTurboDrive G2 512GB PCIe SED

HP Z440
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello,

 

i have a HP Z440 Workstation with Windows 10 64-bit installed but i need to install Windows 7 64-bit.

This doesn' t work.

 

I get in the startup from the W7-boot  but cannot install the correct driver tot do the installation. Which driver do i need for this installation please? I tried every Storage driver there is on the HP-site.

 

With kind regards,

 

 

Danny

Hi, Danny:

 

Sorry those drivers didn't work for you.

 

The only other suggestion I can offer is to try the ones from the Z440 support page. 

 

I have zipped them up and attached them below.

 

There is just one driver file on your PC's support page.

 

Hopefully it is the right one.

Hello Paul,

I can see the driver but i can't install the driver. (Hide Drivers that are not compatible is active)

===> NO DRIVES WERE FOUND

 

Is there something special i need to change in the bios?

 

With kind regards,

 

Danny

Hi, Danny:

 

Unfortunately, I don't know what you need do do about that problem.

 

One of those drivers should have worked with the BIOS set to its defaults.
