    Hi Guys,
    on my Laptop with Slylake processor , managed to install Windows 7 with inject USB3 drivers to the boot.wim using the Intel_USB_3.0_xHC_Driver_Skylake_MR6_PV_4.0.6.60.
    after the installation everything works.
    when i tried to plug a usb to the device to install drivers none of the USBS Ports are working.
    The drivers were injected just to boot.wim.
    Do i have to do the same to install.wim ?

    thank you

    Boot.wim is only for booting the install media, yes you had to integrate it also in install.wim or just install the drivers on the running system.

    Go to your motherboards support web site and download the USB 3.0/3.1 drivers...install
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Also if you dont hibernate the computer you can also disable the hiber file, run powercfg -h off from a command prompt with admin rights :D
