Problems installing Windows 7 on a Samsung laptop

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Basically, when I try to install Windows on the laptop it fails and gets stuck in a boot loop. It works only if I first install it on a different PC and then just move the SSD to the laptop. This only works with Windows 10 since it can adapt to changes in hardware. The problem is that the latest GPU drivers for that laptop are for Windows 7 which commits suicide when you change hardware. I could technically use Windows 8 (I think it can adapt as well, correct me if I'm wrong, but I really don't want to use it). So, the question is, how do I install Windows 7 on a different PC so that I can then use it on my laptop.

I don't really think that this will help but it's a Samsung NP700Z5A-S01AT with an i7, HD 6750M, 8GB DDR3 and 240GB SSD.

I should clarify, this laptop has dual graphics. And basically every dual graphics laptop needs it's own, proprietary driver
