    I didn't but about taking a long time, it's because it has to do the same process for every image, mount, update, unmount, cleanup. Exactly how it is with the Windows 7 USB Creator from Intel, it'd takes ages if you hadn't removed the other editions that you don't want. You can remove other editions via the MSMG Toolkit from the remove menu, you have to remove then one by one until only the edition that you want exists, then go to option 6 and do a cleanup then create the ISO again

    Actually a very important one, for a lot of Intel HWA accelerated applications like Vegas, Video Pro X, and Corel Video Studio 2018, all of which can render in less than half the time with an IntelGPU present. And there are others. More and more non-gaming applications are moving to that built in Intel GPU. In fact some vendors have now officially DROPPED support for Nvidia and AMD in favour of IntelGPU as it has the performance needed at a better price-point.

    Raiderman, can you tell me which version of the Intel driver you got working? I have spent hours trying to get Windows 7 to use the iGPU on my 8700K. There is a well-documented work-around for Kaby Lake modifying the igdlh64.inf file but that doesn't work on Coffee Lake. I have everything else working fine except for that, which I need to accelerate my Video Editing application, that now only uses iGPU (Magix Video Pro X). WikiChip claims that the graphics is identical on KL and CL but the drivers are not. I figured wIntel had crippled the drivers to stop this workaround but when I saw your post I got all excited again...

    Have you tried adding manually your hardware_id (UHD 630) in igdlh64.inf ?

    Yup - that does not work on Coffee Lake. Works fine on KL though. I have put the working igdlh64.inf for CL side by side with the last one that works for KL and copy-pasted all the missing sections, even analysing the DLL file-versions. I am missing something small because it installs just fine, no errors, but then after a restart it goes yellow exclamation mark in DevMngr.

    I have windows 7 running on Z270 with i7-7700K and iGPU (v21.20.16.4860 Nov-2017) which is the last version I can get to work. Anything after that will not work with 7th gen...
    Then I move the OS drive over to Z370 with i7-8700K and the iGPU fails to load, when in theory it should actually run just fine - the differences are cosmetic from what I read.

    You would have to ask @Mr. Fox as my screenshot was of my Ryzen build. He also has an 8700k on Windows 7.

    My apologies - you are correct - I got confused with the quoting - it is indeed Mr Fox who said he got iGPU working on Coffee Lake.... so my question goes out to him now :)
    Mr Fox, can you tell me which version of the Intel driver you got working? You said you have it stashed in case you ever need it again....

    I'm glad that AMD is back in business with laptops with Ryzen + Vega GPU on board.
    The sad thing is that Intel + Vega GPU in laptop won't work on win7 because Intel igpu driver is required to support external GPU. :(

    Summary. You want win7? Buy AMD laptops!
