    Hi All!

    We've got hardware that only has driver support for Windows 7 [it's an obscure drawing tablet that had support ended with Windows 7]. However, the system we're trying to run it on only has new USB 3.0/3.1 ports. We need a distro with USB 3.0/3.1 drivers that will enable the keyboard and mouse to work. The system came with a distro that had the drivers included, but after an Avast update, those drivers ceased to exist and we're trying to do a repair install/clean install to fix it. However, as usual, the person who sold the system didn't include a repair disk, so it's up to me to create one.

    Currently, the system has lost keyboard and mouse control, so my only options are to either get a compatible USB 2.0 PCI-E card or make a new distro that has USB 3.0 built in.

    I haven't slipstreamed a distro with drivers for USB 3.0/3.1 yet, so could someone point me either to a post with it [I couldn't find it on preliminary here search because it said that the search parameters were too common] or tell me the commands/apps needed/etc. to slipstream the latest distro with USB 3.0 support, or if there is an ISO with USB 3.0 support for Windows 7 already included?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Thank you both!

    The board in question is an ASUS ROG-STRIX-B350-F-GAMING. I managed to snag the chipset drivers and was going to try to install them through POWERISO, but this looks more reliable.

    Thanks for the assistance! I'll go ahead and try this and see if I can get it uploaded. :3

    Thank you for your research assistance on this particular issue!

    It is. The drawing tablet is an Ugee m708 or a Cintiq DTZ-1200W, neither of which have compatible drivers for Windows 10 (unfortunately). My friend whom I'm doing tech support for got a new desktop PC built and he's screwed/unable to work on his art for his comic/etc., that pays his/his roommate's bills.

    I'm attempting to integrate all of the necessary drivers for his system into one ISO (I grabbed all of the drivers that I could and stuffed them into the Windows 7 disk image [boot.wim & install.wim files, there's 6 images total in the single image] and stuffed the drivers together]. With hope, it will solve the problems.

    Unless, of course, someone has any suggestions for getting a Cintiq/Cintiq like drawing tablet to work on a modern Windows 10 machine? I may end up loading 10 Enterprise and having him run those apps in a virtual environment, provided it can handle the USB ports & drivers for external peripherals.

    Either way, I'm hoping to get him back to work by the afternoon.

    Not sure if that's the ideal solution or not, but either way, I want to get his system up and running so that he can get back to designing and earning himself a living.
