    There's no Intel USB3 win7 drivers for the 300 series chipset. You would need some third party pcie usb3 card that has drivers...

    At the OP you already posted you used Win 7 image updater, it's the link Joe C gave...

    The problem with that project is that the dev uses drivers which often don't work, when used win-raid provided drivers it mostly works.

    I noticed that. I still haven't got win7 on this desktop even after buying a generic usb 2.0 pci expreas card and installing it. Still no results

    I purchased another card and that got windows 7 on the desktop, but I can't install intel usb 3.0 drivers which means most of my ports don't work. Sadly my only option id to use windows 8.1....I wish i could return this machine. Oh well. Thanks for your help everyone.
