    Any news? I have found out that they released a new modified driver which includes 3EA0 as your device id for the UHD video driver: https://www.win-raid.com/t4348f52-Win-x-Coffee-Like-UHD-Video-driver-2.html#msg95160 Maybe this is better than the previous one which should also work! These 2 driver versions (there are mostly targeted to Coffee Lake and Whiskey Lake version) are different from the one I used (this is mostly targeted to Kaby Lake versions)

    There is a whole new approach to avoid disabling vga and slipstreaming a signed video driver: uefiseven. See here: https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/uefiseven-easily-boot-windows-7-on-uefi-class-3-devices.82137/ Basically it emulates INT10 from CSM in order to make VGA run. This way you can finish the installation without needing a video driver that had to be custom signed if modified.

    You also get working BSOD, checkdisk and safe mode using this, because standard vga works.

    I think you can slipstream this patch into the efi folder and the install.wim en boot.wim from win7 iso and install it as usual without needing a win10pe and all the commands.
