Loading W7 from my original MS W7 Dell disc but run into "no signed drivers were found" problem

I just replaced a failed HDD and trying to install W 7 from my original W7 Dell disk on my XPS 9000 PC

The install process stumbles at "no signed drivers found, make sure the installation media contains correct drivers".

Where can I get the needed drivers, and how do i install them in the middle of the W7 installation process??

As I have no network access on the desktop, can I download the needed drivers from Dell on another pc and then install them somehow on the desktop pc that needs them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

For modern hardware you need an updated Dell Windows 7 Reinstallation .iso which has USB 3.0, storage controllers and NVMe drivers. See here for more details:

Thanks for your reply but will it work with the 7 year old i7-920 intel  processor?
