    My roommate has just bought a new PC with Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible host controller.

    Microsoft Windows 7 installation ISO image file doesn't provide native USB 3.0 drivers but I was told that Microsoft Windows 8 does.

    Could someone here on this forum show me how to extract USB 3.0 drivers from Microsoft Windows 8 Consumer Preview Release? And incorporate/slipstream them into Windows 7 installation ISO image?

    Thanks in advance.

    Dell's website provides the same file as the one provided by Intel. It doesn't work. That's the reason for my post on this forum.

    Don't know if this is against forum rules, but I've extracted the USB 3.0 Generic Hub Drivers from Windows 8 RP, and uploaded them here:

    sendspace.com/file/t0bjkm

    You should be able to integrate them with DISM and the /add-driver switch. Remember to do this on both boot.wim 2 and install.wim *

    :)

    What do you mean by "manually install"?

    Thanks friend.

    On the original Microsoft Windows 8 RP, the USB 3.0 Generic Hub Drivers are located in which folder? and what is the folder's name(s)?

    In addition, could you show me, step-by-step, how to use integrate these drivers using DISM and the /add-driver switch?

    And last question: what do you mean by "boot.wim 2"? I thought there was only one boot.wim for every installation ISO image?

    First install the OS. Go to the website and manually download that USB3 Zip file and unzip it and install the USB3 driver. Don't know why you are making it difficult for yourself for just a driver that can be easily install manually.

    You either misread or misunderstood my original post. I suggest that you re-read my original post.

    The answer is in one of my replies. It doesn't matter which brand and model so long as the motherboard uses Intel HM75, HM76 or HM77 chipset with Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible host controller.

    You have misunderstood why he is asking, he is trying to install the O/S but because he is installing it via a usb pen drive on a usb 3 port windows 7 will only install as far as the legacy usb emulation will allow ie up to the point of language selection, after that the usb pen drive will not be recognised as there is no usb drivers to parse it.

    Are you telling me this motherboard doesn't even have a single USB 2 port or connectors on the MB or this person just want to install W7 using usb 3 port?
