HP Envy u483cl - Windows 7 x64 downgrade - Intel Wireless AC 3165

[ Edited ]
Product Name: HP Envy x360 15 u483cl
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

PROBLEM:   Can anyone help me find drivers that will maximize performance?


I have downgraded my new HP-Envy to avoid Windows 10.  Eventually will dual-boot Win 7 and Linux Mint.


Have successfully installed Windows 7 (by modifying install.wim and boot.wim to include USB 3.0 drivers).


For others, SOLUTION TO "NO INTERNET CONNECTIVITY" = HP.com,  http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02543015  =  f12 on my notbook, which controls "Airplane mode" - apparently defaults to "off".  NO indicator lamp, unfortunately.


Notebook product = identified above

OS - Windows 7 Professional x64

NIC = Intel Wireless AC 3165

Hi @Willie_97,


Thank you for posting at HP Forums.


I read your post about looking for the best drivers for Envy x360 15-u483cl. Unfortunately, there is only drivers for Windows 10 for this model offered by HP. You may try to scan hardware change in the Device Manager, and update using the automatic research. Hope this could help.
