    For the moment, but when isn't supported anymore you will want to move, and of course the price will be higher. Having a business you know it is a write-off.

    If you did what i said in my previous post, the update pack will integrate the USB3.x install tool, during the windows install the correct usb driver for your system will be automatically installed.

    haaa...ok so let's see...
    so once the "installed updates" process is finished, all i have to do is to overwrite the install.wim file in my usb key, with the one in C:\simplix\wim\ ?

    i hope that the intel Win7-USB3.0-Creator-V3 tool didn't break the install.win file as i'm still using the same which is supposed to be already "patched" with the usb drivers....o_O

    All that process takes more than 1 hour, with an I7 4770 and a fast SSD...
    i'm wondering why there is no ISO files ready to use and including these USB3.x drivers...it will save us a lot of time...my windows 7 is french, if anyone want it i can upload it in my Mega account, it will save you a lot of time...

    Those iso's don't officially exist because the last official Win 7 iso was released in 2010? USB2 was the highest level, natively supported by 7SP1.

    Never trust any homebrew iso given by any, unknown to you, person ;)
