It creates the USB but when I go to install it, it says "This computer is either not connected to the internet or does not have network drivers installed".

Any ideas?

Ill help you out with your next issue :)

Once you get this installed you will realise windows 7 update on clean builds doesn't work anymore as MS changed the server address's its supposed to look at.... Try this below;

1. Download and Install IE11. (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/internet-explorer-11-for-windows-7-details.aspx)
2. Restart your computer.
3. Download and install the KB3102810 update (
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3102810)
4. Restart
5. Stop Windows Update Service and Delete the ?SoftwareDistribution? folder.
6. Restart your computer.
7. Search for updates.


works every time for me that I need it these days (I'm a server engineer)

Hello

i have a little problem.

When i trying to install win7 i noticed that it cant run, so there was google and the msi win7 tool but..

The problem is he would not see my m2 drives,only my sata hdd and a 850 ssd.(definatly i would have my windows on the 950 m2)

i have a
mobo m5, 6700k,2x 950pro 512,1x 850 pro sata,

I checked m2 genie on in the tool but wont work.
i noticed that when i make a image with rufus the windos setup will see my drive but after finishing installation it says can not configurate harware.

There is somethging that i do not right.

Thanks for youre time.

I suggest using Gigabyte tool which allows you to integrate drivers like USB3, Nvme and others.

Hi,

I'm trying for a fresh install of Windows 7 on a new setup with a Z270-A pro and new Kaby lake I5 7500. After attempting to boot from the optical drive with windows 7 CD, I get a can't find bootmgr message. I've heard windows 7 is not compatible with the newest generation intel processors. Am I out of luck here or will the smart tool help me? On that note, I actually can't get the Smart tool to run, it says there is a problem and immediately closes.

Thanks.

try yumi multiboot tool

lets you put several different items on a thumb drive
when it boots, it presents a menu, which you pick which item you want to boot at that time

get done, leave the drive n, reboot, and simply pick the next item you want to work with.

has 2 versions... use the one according to which bios flavor you intend to use
UEFI
OR LEGACY

ANOTHER GOOD THING IS...
you can do it with anything that use a iso file

SO IT'S REUIRED TO A PARTICULAR BRAND OR ITEM SPECIFIC
it will format a thumb drive, load whate ever you present to it, then you can boot into it, and pick whatever you want to run, form the things YOU CHOOSE to load on it.
win iso
gparted iso
linux iso
anti virus iso

most any thing that is .iso format

ONLY REAL ISSUE I FOUND WITH IT IS
*they say* UEFI version will not run 32 bit
but i seen it do so, when i accidently clicked the wrong item to boot.
was 32 bit linux, i wanted 64 bit that was listed right below it .. mouse misfired
ANYWAY, tht 32 bit version is still running today
so it will run he 32.... thought most everyone wants 64 bit everything today... is still good for older pc.

ANYWAY
it has worked where, others has failed
and I have tried several

hpusb  tool
unetbootin
rufus
and FEW others

yumi is my go to thumb drive prep & boot loading tool

only other I know of that CLAIMS to do what yumi does, cost $40 and has a limit on how many items it will process
yumi has no such limit
it is free
and has been around for a while now.

pendrivelinux
^^^ it's there
and so are many of the others, along with comparative write ups about them

they even help you formart/clean your thumb drive and prepare and load it with whatever iso file, OR IT'S DOWNLOAD LINK, you provide
merely hve you file of url, and follow the prompts.
when done, you re fully ready to go booting and installing
really simple

and not 1 bit of problem bout cleaning/clearing your thumb drive afterwards, to use again for somethign else.
personlly, i'd store that one s a backup in case of future pc issues
, and get a 2nd to use for tools, media, etc..

BTW yumi also splits you thumb drive files inot categories, ie, OS, tools,  etc....
you don't have to do it
you don't have to browse form dir to dir
they load and sort it all, and you just use a arrow key to go thru the directory listing on the thumb drive

just try it once, with multiple iso/package & category items
you'll see right off just what I mean.

I have the same problem, attempted on two different machines. Is there any way to download an older version of the tool or figure out why it won't run? Tried everything else to get around the "missing driver" installation error, and this tool looks like my only option besides buying an optical drive or non-USB mouse/keyboard.

FYI: Important Smart Tool information:
The source folder in MSI smart tool could not be multi-version operating system DVD or ISO file, 
it would make smart tool having error when adding those drivers and cause installation incompletion.
to build windows 7 installation file via smart tool,
it must be used a single version operating system installation file(i.e. stand-alone ultimate, professional, etc.).

if you download WINE (Windows Emulator) from the Linux distribution's software repositories and install it. once its installed you can Run the EXE via WINE to get it to Execute.

Hi guys,

I have the same issue. I just upgraded my PC to Ryzen 1500x with MSI B350. Installation was smooth but my KB and mouse does not work once I enter OS(Windows 7). It works fine in bios. 

I guess what I am asking is, do I need to clean install windows again or is there a work around on this?

Thanks.

then try again

The ISO is ripped from an original Home Premium DVD so im sure only one OS is present. The only modifications done are integrated updates up until 2016.05.22[lets put aside why until this point, its a personal thing]).
