    Thanks, I will try it!
    ---------- Post added Jul 11, 2018 ----------
    The AIO package I have is a x86 with updates of June 18.
    I know my PC can't run a 64bit version.
    I thought to get it run if I delete the ei folders and replace
    the boot configuration but I don't know if that would work.
    I couldn't find a single Windows x86 with June 18 updates
    because I don't have Internet at home to get the latest updates.
    If it would be possible to offline update the latest security
    updates between September 16 and now that would be good. Maybe
    someone of you know a place from where I can download those updates.
    Is there a way to see what updates are installed in the AIO package?
    The Graphic Card I have is a NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT with
    512 MB RAM.

    What you appear to have is just a standard 32-bit disk that's been integrated with Windows updates and generally played around with, that's not really an AIO disk. If it was just a normal ISO with integrated updates it would still boot on your computer but the creator may have done something else that is causing it not to work (you still haven't said what happens when it fails). You have Windows 7 already installed so a standard disk works on your PC.

    If you just want to install updates offline all you need to do is download them elsewhere with an offline updater. Look here:

    https://www.raymond.cc/blog/offline-windows-update/

    The #2 WSUS Offline Update tool will do exactly what you want.

    The last official Windows 7 ISO was way back from 2011 and any disk you use which has newer updates will be created from a third party, so you have no idea what else has been done to it.

    if your processor do not support 64bit then you cant install 64bit, you cant just delete some files from windows disk and expect windows 64bit to get installed properly without for example runtime errors! to Slim windows installation disk and to delete files are two different things!

    I was reading about Plop Boot Manager but couldn't find any solution to make the Win 7 x86 AIO running witout doing some changes in the AIO itself.
    I think there is no way to get it booted because it was created on a newer PC.

    It doesn't matter how new the PC is that creates the disk, things like legacy BIOS and UEFI don't come into it. A standard Win 7 disk will run on any PC that can boot to optical media or USB.

    We can sit here guessing forever but we need to know what happens when you try to boot the disk. A link to the actual ISO would also be very helpful. It's difficult to cure a problem when you don't know what the cause is.

    It is booting up to the point when a tiled window is showing up then it's sitting there and nothing happens.

    Here are the download links:

    I've had a look at the ISO and the problem is what I feared, this disk has been so heavily modified that almost all the files the disk uses to boot are actually Windows 10 files. That could be the reason it doesn't work on your machine. Windows 10 32-bit is unlikely to work on hardware as old as yours.

    In the end to get a normal Windows 7 bootable disk I had to take a standard Win 7 ISO and replace the Install.wim which is the main installation file. That's basically taking only 1 file off your disk and placing it on a standard DVD.

    To get this disk to work you would probably have to do the same which means downloading a 32-bit Windows 7 ISO at 2.4GB, then changing the wim file over with ISO editing software. That's a lot of effort and still not 100% guaranteed to work. It would be much quicker and easier to just update your current Windows install using the method I outlined above.

    Even if you do manage to get this to install, it's now a month out of date and would require another 300MB+ of Windows updates for July.

    @Halgooo

    Thanks for your effort.
    I had a chance to test this ISO on a Lenovo Ideapad 120s and changed the Boot Mode to Legacy Support put it on a USB Stick and it worked.

    Can you give me a link for downloading the July 18 windows 7 updates?

    However, I will try to switch the Wim file to a 32bit iso and see what happens and let you know about the result.

    It will almost certainly work on all newer hardware such as the Lenovo you tried.

    The important updates I have listed are:

    .NET 3.5 Security Update:
    http://download.windowsupdate.com/c..._c9d5a67adfdccd5ca6ccd9ec55104c0b7130652d.msu
    Windows Security and Quality Rollup July:

    Malicious Software Removal Tool:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...e0-e72d-4f54-9ab3-75b8eb148356&displaylang=en

    Luckily the updates are smaller for 32-bit.
