Hello guys,
I have a DVD with WIN7PE SE that works perfectly,

but on the new notebook you do not see me USB ports being in version 3.0

there is the possibility to insert native support to USB 3 to my win7pe without having to resort to specific driver for each notebook?

 

thanks

No, there are no generic Windows 7 USB 3 drivers.

There are hardware specific drivers only.
Worse, there are conflicting releases: different versions with the same file name.

Use the generic driver ingtegration script, this uses dism.exe to integrate the drivers.
Collect the drivers to a folder and select this folder at driver integration.

The Intel USB 3.0 are the conflicting one, especial the switch driver.
I've no relating hardware and therefore can't recommend a driver package.
Try either the original Intel USB package or the modded Intel USB package, not both at the same time.

Do you expext a USB 3.0 controller at USB 3.0 speed?
Do you accept a USB 3.0 controller at USB 2.0 speed?
Be aware, BIOS/UEFI settings are importand too.

Why when booted via DVD ?

And I have not yet seen any machine that support USB 3.0 speed booting, it always are at a lower speed.

 

But yes integrating the USB 3 driver, does once booted into the WinPE provide access to USB 3 devices/storage

The Intel USB 3.0 Port can be connected to USB 2.0 controller or to a USB 3.0 controller.
This can be set fixed or automatic at firmware.
The machine boots at USb 2.0 speed at automatic mode.
The OS can change this later at boot time. The switch driver should enable USB 3.0 speed at automatic setting.

If you like to read or write write a lot of data to USB (full backup), the USB speed is importand after boot.

If the switch driver fails, then there is no USB 3.0 speed.
If you need USB 3.0 speed, you may fix to USB 3.0 controller always at firmware.

Yes but, if port in bios are configured to 2.0 controller, then no extra driver will be needed in the WinPE, as it support the 2.0 controllers.

And if configured to Automatic or 3.0 controller then the 3.0 driver will be needed.

So as currently the devices are not seen in WinPE, then the port in bios are not configured to 2.0, therefore driver are needed.

Checking UEFI setting are not important as booting are done via DVD and are working.

 

So to me I can not see reason why user should need to go into the bios, from already listed information, then it must currently be using the 3.0 controller, why the driver are needed, and will then be running 3.0.

The switch driver are when booting on the port and it are set to automatic, as then and only then it will be running 2.0 during boot, and WinPE the with this driver switch to 3.0.

 

I may be wrong, but this are just how it has been working on the machines I have been in contact with.

you need to use Dism to add drivers, usb3, to your wim file.

you can download DISM GUI from here:
