Hello,


I tried installing Windows 7 on my new build using Gigabyte's Windows 7 tool but when i booted it up I got no cursor in the setup ?
I tried biostar, asrock and intel Windows 7 tool but still the same problem ?

Hardware:
Ryzen 5 2600
Gigabyte A320M-H
Western Digital Blue 500g NVME M.2 SSD

Please any help would be great.

Turn off fast boot in bios.
Try with PS/2 style mouse.

But yes - installing windows 7 on newer hardware is quite tricky.
USB drivers, several hotfixes and nvme drivers have to be integrated into installation before you can install.
Gigabyte windows usb tool does that.

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

In short, you shouldn't be on Windows 7 while working with that platform from AMD, even for Intel's counterpart platforms. You should be on Windows 10, at the very least to get the most out of your platform. The tools are useless at this point and too much hassle to loose on performance in 2021(soon to be 2022).
