This is an I/O gap caused by trying to align new hardware technology with Windows 7. To bridge this gap for Windows 7 images, Dell support recommends the following workaround available online:
Due to a reduction in customer demand and a general quiescence in the production of XP-specific drivers, all Windows XP drivers have been removed from the full (zip) downloads of the UIU. Windows XP will continue to be supported and drivers will continue to be offered via UIU Online Updates. Please contact UIU Support for a full (zip) download of the UIU-prepared XP driver database.
The full driver database now exceeds 15Gb in size (15.5 Gb). Please follow the guidelines below for optimal performance. This database release still covers Windows 7 through Windows 10 (32/64bit).
USB Flash drives need to be formatted with the NTFS file system before the driver database will successfully transfer.
Network share access is recommended.
The Big Bang Support Team would like to remind our customers to please clear out any drivers represented in the Custom folder(s) prior to testing with a new version of the UIU Driver Database as neglecting to do so may result in false negative installations. Please contact a Support Representative with questions or concerns. Thank you!
