    Hi everyone,

    I've downloaded a Windows 7 AIO ISO from a website.
    However, I cannot load it to install it because my pc is an old bios legacy.

    I tried different tools but no luck. Maybe someone can help me what to do to get it work.

    WinAIO Maker Professional?
    AIO Boot Extractor?

    Thanks for your reply

    It's a Intel D875PBZ Motherboard from my Gateway E6100 PC

    What happens when you try to boot the AIO disk?

    Your PC is so old that it might have a Pentium 4 CPU which is not 64 bit. If the AIO is trying to use the 64 bit boot files to startup it won't work.

    Check your PC and if it is a P4 then just download a plain 32 bit Win 7 ISO as the 64 bit version and an AIO disk is of no use.

    Also check your PC spec against Win 7's minimum requirements. Some Gateway E6100's came with 512mb of RAM and Win 7 won't run on that to a satisfactory level.

    That just means there is no official Intel driver support, Windows 7 32-bit still works perfectly fine on this motherboard, plenty of people around the web have installed and used it.

    Well maybe to get a better graphic card!
    also performance can be lower, so maybe a better cpu will be needed or SSD hard drive!

    Like I said above, if your CPU is a Pentium 4 then there is no point in having an AIO DVD because your system won't be able to run a 64-bit Windows. When creating an AIO using something like WinAIO Maker Pro, there is the option to boot with the 32-bit or 64-bit files, if the creator of the ISO chose 64-bit, your system won't boot to it.

    A standard 32-bit Windows 7 ISO has all the 32-bit versions on it, you don't need anything else. The fact you have Win 7 32-bit already installed says the 32-bit boot files work fine on your PC.

    If you are still intent on getting this to work, can you point me to the AIO ISO you have been trying? What happens when you try to run it (error msgs, BSOD, what?)?
