Issues When Installing Windows 7 Drivers

Users may encounter errors when installing drivers in Windows 7, which can be resolved by installing an update to Windows 7 that enables SHA-2 code signing in Windows 7, allowing the older operating system to use the newer device drivers. If allowed to fully update, Windows Update should install this update for you automatically. However, if you are unable to connect to the Internet, you may need to use a USB thumb drive, or some other media, to install this update on the machine on which you wish to install Windows 7.
