Install Pending while trying to install updates to Win7 ISO


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I am using WinToolkit to install a hotfix to a Windows 7 ISO. I am attempting to install Windows 7 Professional X64 on a new AMD laptop with an NVMe SSD. From trawling the internet it seems I have to install a hotfix in the form of an update from microsoft (KB2990941 + KB3087873). After I install the hotfix through WinToolkit it says "Install Pending". From looking through other threads this appears to be normal, but because I need this hotfix for the installation of the OS, I can't reboot to finish the installation of the hotfix. I'm stuck in a loop!

Is there any way to finalise the installation before I attempt to install on the laptop? It naturally looks for drivers relating to the NVMe ssd when I try to install.


Any help on this would be much appreciated!

Try this instead of WinTollkit.

For KB2990941 here is the official update to add native driver support in NVM Express in Windows 7. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2990941/update-to-add-native-driver-support-in-nvm-express-in-windows-7-and-wi

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried the instructions in that link but it failed at the step with the recurse.

I found the solution on sevenforums: https://www.sevenforums.com/installation-setup/415754-update-your-win-7-installation-media.html . I gave instructions on what I did to get it to work on post #804.
