The Windows 7 RTM distribution doesn’t support USB 3.0 out-of-the-box, and you can encounter some problems with the installation of Windows 7 on a computer/máy tính having USB 3.0 ports only (most modern devices released after năm ngoái have only USB3 ports). For example, USB keyboard and mouse may not work in Windows 7 Setup wizard, or the installer may require to lớn load drivers for your CD/DVD drive:
A required CD/DVD drive sầu device driver is missing. If you have a driver’s floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now.Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive sầu, you can safely remove it for this step.

Accordingly, you cannot install Windows 7 (or Windows Server 2008 R2) from a USB drive to lớn a computer on which all peripheral devices are connected via USB 3.0 ports.
The Enhanced Host Controller Interface is not supported in the Hãng Intel chipsets starting from 100 and 200 series (B150, H110, H170, Q150, Q170, Z170, Hãng Intel Apollo Lake), similar AMD chipsets và chipsets from other vendors. Therefore USB 3.0 ports are simply not detected by the Windows 7 installer.
To install Windows 7 correctly on some computer models, you can disable USB 3.0 mode in BIOS settings by switching khổng lồ USB 2.0 compatibility mode (Legacy USB 2.0). In all other cases, you will have sầu lớn modify Windows 7 install distro and integrate USB 3.0 drivers for your motherboard chipmix lớn the boot & install WIM images.
Some motherboard vendors released special tools lớn integrate their USB drivers into your Windows 7 installation image. For example, ASRock (Win 7 USB Patcher), MSI (MSI Smart Tool), Hãng sản xuất Intel (Windows USB Installation Tool for Windows 7), Gigabyte (Windows USB Installation Tool) and etc. But in this article we will show you how to lớn manually integrate USB drivers into lớn the Windows 7 Install image without using third-tiệc nhỏ utilities.
All the operations of modifying of the Windows 7 ISO image, described below, are performed on a computer running Windows 10.
Next, you need to update the Windows 7 install image (it may be an ISO file or a ready image copied to the installation USB stick). You’ll need two WIM files lớn be copied khổng lồ the c: mp directory from the Windows 7 ISO image or the installation disk:sourcesoot.wlặng – WinPE boot image used lớn install Windows on your device;sourcesinstall.wyên ổn – Windows 7 image that will be installed on your computer.
Run a command prompt with the administrator privileges, & use the DISM tool lớn mount WinPE boot image (boot.wim) và integrate the USB 3.0 drivers into lớn it:
dism /mount-wim /wimfile:c: mpoot.wyên /index:2 /mountdir:c: mpmountdism /image:c: mpmount /add-driver:"c: mpusb3" /recurse
The following message indicates that the specified USB3 driver was successfully added to lớn the boot.wyên image of the Windows 7 installation environment:
Installing 1 of 6 — c: mpusb3DriversHCSwitchx64iusb3hcs.inf: The driver package was successfully installed.
Save sầu the changes in the image and unmount the boot.wlặng file (to lớn avoid DISM errors, make sure that you closed all File Explorer windows & the tệp tin managers, which has the c: mpmount directory open):
dism /unmount-wyên /mountdir:c: mpmount /commitdism /cleanup-wim
Similarly, you need lớn update the operating system installation image in the install.wim tệp tin. Here the main difference is that the install.wlặng image can contain several Windows 7 editions with different indexes. So, you will have to add drivers to lớn that Windows edition you are going to lớn install (or to all available Windows 7 editions in turn).
You can list the available Windows 7 editions in the install.wyên ổn image as follows:
dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:c: mpinstall.wim
In our example, there are 4 different Windows editions in the install.wyên ổn image. We’ll add the USB 3.0 driver to lớn Windows 7 PROFESSIONAL with the index 3 (this number will be used lớn address the edition using DISM).
Then add the USB 3.0 drivers to the Windows image lượt thích we did it above:
dism /mount-wim /wimfile:c: mpinstall.wyên ổn /index:3 /mountdir:c: mpmountdism /image:c: mpmount /add-driver:"c: mpusb3" /recursedism /unmount-wlặng /mountdir:c: mpmount /commitdism /cleanup-wim
You can also integrate the lathử nghiệm security updates inkhổng lồ your Windows installation image using DISM.
It remains to replace the updated install.wim và boot.wyên ổn files on the installation USB flash drive sầu or update the ISO file, & you can use this image to lớn install Windows 7 on computers with a USB 3.0 controller.
