    Seems like there is no way around it. To install that update yet prevent the windows 10 upgrade, either download the updates manually using the Simplix Pack (original thread = http://forum.oszone.net/thread-257198.html ) which installs all updates minus the bad ones OR

    then do this via Group Policy Editor:

    I read all of those links. Every update seem to have Windows 10 upgrade preperation. I don't want any of them at all. Have you done this yourself too?

    How the hell did Microsoft think when they did this. When you do a clean install you need too update afterwards. It seems that you have to update manually before you can get rest of the updates and that is just so stupid. **** Microsoft!!

    I never use Windows update anymore on Windows 7, just use the simplix pack regularly and turn off Windows update

    you cannot PM me or Mr. Fox because we disabled PMs.

    Don't worry too much about it, I've seen that error a few times. If you go hunting for Event Log Errors it the errors will never end and you'll go crazy.

    The only thing I cana suggest is update OR downgrade your IRST Driver and/or reinstall the NVMe driver if you are not in RAID mode.

    I just finished a crisp and clean Windows 7 Ultimate x64 installation on the 960 Pro in my Z370/8700K desktop. I fought it for a day and finally got help with some system driver tweaks from Fernando at Win-Raid forum. After integrating the 300 series chipset, RAID/AHCI, USB 3.0 and 3.1, and NVMe drivers, the installation went with no hiccups. The only "unknown device" items in Device Manager were the Intel ME and ASUS WiFi drivers.

    I am attaching a zip file with these essential Z370 system drivers to save others the hassle of searching for them. You can integrate them into your ISO with MSMG Toolkit.

    [Download: W7 x64 Z370 Chipset/USB3.0/USB3.1/Intel RST RAID+AHCI/NVMe Driver INF files]

    I am uploading the ISO now. When it is done I will post a link here for anyone that wants it.
