I recently bought Inspiron 15 3537 with Windows 8. I am trying to install fresh Windows 7 instead. I followed all the instructions, yet at the end of the installation I get the blue screen with HIDCLASS.SYS error:
Someone know how to fix it? :(
Stop code 7E is your AHCI/IDE driver.
Goto Dell and download and extract the newest driver on to a USB stick
During the Windows 7 install process click Load Driver and install the SATA/AHCI driver from your USB stick.
install should proceed normally.
Otherwise go into the BIOS and switch modes. If it is in AHCI mode then use IDE or compatibility mode. If it is in IDE mode switch it to AHCI mode.
