We have just purchased a Zbook 15u G3 that has a Toshiba m.2 NVME drive in it. This is the first one we have gotten with this drive, as the others have the Samsung 951 drive. We use MDT 2013 to deploy Windows 7 to our PCs and laptops which I have the Samsung driver injected into the image as well as the Microsoft updates. The problem I am having is, when I deploy our image to the laptop with the Toshiba drive, I get the wonderful blue screen because I don't have the drivers for the Toshiba installing during the imaging process. I have the Samsung drivers loading and I can deploy with no issues at all, but cannot without the NVME drivers for the Toshiba drive. Is there anywhere I can get these drivers?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Get the OCZ (Toshiba) driver from here http://www.win-raid.com/t29f25-Recommended-AHCI-RAID-and-NVMe-Drivers.html and you should be able to deploy win7
The package is called "pure" 64bit OCZ NVMe driver v22.214.171.1243 WHQL

Already have those, that's for the OCZ drive that Toshiba makes. Those won't work. Just like the Samsung 950 drivers will not work for the Samsung 951 OEM drives. I'm needing the drivers for the thnsn5512gpu7

That's odd. I had the same problem with our second batch of Zbook 15u G3. First one had samsung ssd so that was pretty easy. The second batch used some kind of generic MS driver which I couldn't get even by using Drivergrabber and those were Toshiba 512 GB ssd. Ended up with a nice nice BSOD after first reboot when deploying from sccm 2012 until I added those toshiba drivers to the driver package.
I tried the solution in this advisory http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c05040446
but instead the whole thing hanged during the device driver installation routine.

Well, dummy me. The OCZ drivers worked. When I put them in MDT I had not imported them into the 15u, only the 17 G3. The laptop is up and running with no problems now. It made me think when you mentioned the drivers and I looked.
The ones I used were from

I have a Zbook G3 17" - Toshiba SSD NVME - Windows 10 Preloaded
Here's what I did to get Windows 7 Pro x64 installed... (easier said than done)
Assuming you have a Windows7 ISO
Downloaded Rufus & Created Win7 UEFI Installer Image on USB
Download Windows 7 USB 3.0 Creator Utility (I used the Win7Admin.zip download)
- Did not use the GUI Tool
Downloaded "ocznvme-126.96.36.1993_whck.zip" as mentioned above
After Unzipping, Copied the OCZ folder to the USB Drive. Once at the Win7 install screen select Load driver-browse to OCZ folder- select the only entry (when hide non compatible drivers is checked)
Finally the Disk with all partitions showed up!!!
Hope this helps

I spent a whole week trying to install Windows 7 on a Zbook 15U G3 with Toshiba XG5 SSD.
At the end I found
In setup write your serialnummber and chose Windows 7 x64.
Made a flash USB with Win7 and drivers , boot (Legacy enabled) and There it is!!!
Thx God. Hope that helps others with this problem.
