I had so much inconvenience getting Windows 7 to stack on the HP p2-1334 Desktop PC. The main OS alternative it accompanies is Windows 8, which I really like a lot, however it’s for one of the staff I work with and I didn’t have a craving for preparing them on it – in addition to it wasn’t the Pro version so I couldn’t go along with it to the area without redesigning.
I chose it may be pleasant to put together a little instructional exercise on stacking Windows 7, and ideally help no less than one poor soul out there. I’ve likewise perused protestations about not having the capacity to change the boot need (in spite of the way this is an alternative in the BIOS), which I will likewise address here.
Before you start, download the Atheros AR8152 arrange driver for Windows 7 from http://www.atheros.cz/atheros-remote download.php?chipset=51&system=5 and spare it to a USB thumb drive, or copy it to a DVD/CD. The one at support.hp.com for this model PC won’t work, it will just work with Windows 8.
To begin, you should change a few choices in the BIOS.
Hold down the ESCAPE key when you control ON the PC until the point when a menu is appeared
Go into the Computer Setup
Go to the Security Menu, and Secure Boot Configuration
Empower Legacy Support
Impair Secure Boot
Impair Fast Boot
Press F10 to spare your settings
Go to the File Menu and select Save Changes and Exit
Presently you ought to have the capacity to introduce Windows 7. Embed the circle, hold ESCAPE and boot the machine once more. You would now be able to go to the boot menu and select the DVD-ROM drive to boot from. Take after the typical strides for introducing Windows 7.
When Windows 7 is up and running, you will likely notice that the Atheros AR8152 organize driver couldn’t be found. Embed the USB thumb drive or plate that you consumed with the drivers for your NIC. At the season of this written work, the most recent form was 126.96.36.199. Go into Device Manager (in the Start menu, right tap on Computer, go to Properties, and in the left segment click Device Manager), go to properties on the system card and pick “Refresh driver”. Select the envelope with the INF and SYS documents from your USB drive – note, in the event that they’re still in a ZIP record, you should remove them first.
On the off chance that your framework has the AMD Radeon HD 7310 (which I consider whatever them do), you should utilize sp57269.exe from hp.com. In the event that you go to support.hp.com and look for this PC, it will just offer sp58347.exe which is just for Windows 8. I discovered sp57269.exe by Googling it, which I downloaded from here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&softwareitem=ob-105905-1
Once your NIC and designs drivers are introduced, you ought to have the capacity to wrap up the drivers from Windows Update. Make certain to incorporate every OPTIONAL refresh when running Windows refresh .
