  1. The the huge convenience rollup requires a reboot to install fully. Windows 7 refreshed media creation
  2. I understand: Intel Hub connected to a Intel USB Hub. And next to a Intel USB 3.0 controller USB\VID_045B&PID_0209 USB\VID_8087 Renesas Hub connected to a Intel USB Hub. And next to a Intel USB 3.0 controller USB\VID_2109&PID_2811 There is a issue with both Intel Hub and Renesas Hub. There are no Intel USB 3.0 XP drivers. There are Renesas USB 3.0 Hub XP drivers, but they are tested with Renesas controller drivers. A Renesas USB 3.0 Hub XP driver may work with a XP default controller drivers, or may fail. Verify the BIOS section 5-2-7 USB Blocker. Does the BIOS prohibit the USB Mass Storage Device by disabling the USB hub? Did you disable USB 3.0 xhci mode at BIOS? It's a BIOS or a driver issue. It's working at a reboot, but not at a power down and power up? Guessed: it's the BIOS. The BIOS expect proper OS USB 3.0 drivers, there are no XP drivers. Try a PCIe USB 3.0 card, with XP driver support.
  3. @Damnation Don't you use a GA-Z97X-UD5H-BK? The manual describes BIOS section 5-2-7 USB Blocker. Are any USB devices blocked? I don't understand the Product Specification: USB Chipset: - 4 x USB 3.0/2.0 ports (2 ports on the back panel, 2 ports available through the internal USB header) - 6 x USB 2.0/1.1 ports (2 ports on the back panel, 4 ports available through the internal USB headers) Chipset + Renesas uPD720210 USB 3.0 Hub: - 4 x USB 3.0/2.0 ports on the back panel The picture shows 8 ports on the back panel. 2 ports and 2 ports and 4 ports are 8 ports on the back panel. Is the Renesas uPD720210 USB 3.0 Hub connected to a Intel USB 3.0 controller? How does USB 2.0 USB 3.0 handshake works at XP with XP default drivers? How does the motherboard block USB devices? Are enabled and disabled relating USB Hubs? Is USB\VID_045B&PID_0209 a real HardwareID or a fake ID created by the BIOS? Are there different motherboard revisions? Do you have USB 2.0 slot brackets? Can you connect this to the internal USB headers? Goto device mangager, change view per connection. Which USB controller precedes the USB hub?
  4. Edit Windows7-x64\k11acw7\netathr7x.inf [Manufacturer] ;%ATHEROS% = Atheros, NTamd64.6.1 %ATHEROS% = Atheros, NTamd64 ;[Atheros.NTamd64.6.1] [Atheros.NTamd64] The Windows 7 binary driver may work or fail at Vista.
  5. Go back to AHCI mode temporarily. Boot Windows 7, open the registry HKLM\system\CurrentControlSet\services\pciide set start=0 Enable IDE mode again.
  6. The BIOS shows two active XHCI controllers. I understand: The BIOS dosn't allow do disable xhci mode. XHCI hand-off is about switching USB 2 or USB 3 mode. Do not install Intel USB 3 drivers. If you are lucky, default Vista USB 2 drivers are active.
  7. This are ASMedia drivers, not Intel drivers. There are different USB contollers at the motherboard. One chipset Intel USB 3.0 controller and another ASmedia USB 3.1 controller. Guessed: there are USB 3.0 ports and USB 3.1 ports at the laptop. There are ASmedia USB 3.1 Vista drivers. There is a inf section [ASMEDIA.ntamd64] Intel dosn't provide USB 3.0 Vista drivers. There is a inf section [Intel.NTAMD64.6.1], Windows 7 and up Disable Intel xhci at BIOS, fix to USB 2.0.
  8. Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver Not Supported in Windows XP or Windows Vista
  9. No need for a additional tool. The OS itself lists the ACPI key. The key is a key, it's not a usage permission. wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey The OS manufacturer lists two different cases: How is the software aquired? From a store as packaged software for end-users of from Microosft directly? Pre-Installed on your computer from the computer manufacturer? The first Windows 8 OEM is tranferable to another computer, the second is not. This is the manufacturer opinion. In addition there are local laws. A packaged software for end-users is clearly transferable. The Pre-Installed version is questionable to transfer.
  10. The manufacturer opinion is: To make that transfer, you must transfer the original media, the certificate of authenticity, the product key and the proof of purchase directly to that other person, without retaining any copies of the software. At a hardware manufacturer Windows 8 OEM the product key is embedded in BIOS, you don't know he product key, you don't have to know the key to install a new Windows. You can not transfer the key without retanining any copies, as long you keep the hardware. This OS manufacturer opinion relates to en-US system builder OEM version only. Not to a hardware manufacturer OEM version. Transfering a system builder OEM is allowed, a hardware manufacturer OEM transfer is not specified at above link. There are different countries with different laws and court rulings. There are a lot of different cases, there is no general answer to license transfer.
  11. The download works for retail key version only, not at OEM versions. Read sections Download Windows 7/8.1 from The Windows 10 Download Page and Download a Windows 7 or 8.1 ISO Without JavaScript
  12. Can you clarify the request? Do you like to add drivers? Do you like to replace active drivers? Can you name some examples? Which hardware do you use and which drivers are missing? Dism can add drivers to a offline Windows. But the drivers are not installed fully. Boot critical drivers are available at next boot. Windows may install non boot criticical drivers at next boot.
  13. Enable Testsigning mode and edit the inf file: [Manufacturer] %Intel% = IntelGfx, NTamd64 [IntelGfx.NTamd64] %iCNTG0% = iCNT0, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2A42 %iCNTG1% = iCNT1, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2A43 %iEGLG0% = iEGL0, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E02 %iEGLG1% = iEGL1, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E03 %iEGLQ4G0% = iEGL0, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E12 %iEGLQ4G1% = iEGL1, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E13 %iEGLG4G0% = iEGL0, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E22 %iEGLG4G1% = iEGL1, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E23 %iEGLGVG0% = iEGL0, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E32 %iEGLGVG1% = iEGL1, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E33 %iEGLGB0% = iEGL0, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E42 %iEGLGB1% = iEGL1, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E43 %iEGLGBU0% = iEGL0, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E92 %iEGLGBU1% = iEGL1, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E93
  14. Backup Activation Method
  15. Windows 7 doesn't support USB boot. Contrary there are some USB boot hints: Timeout for boot device increase for Hyper-V Server 2008 R2. Read the BIOS / UEFI conditions influences USB boot possibility. BootDriverFlags and PollBootPartitionTimeout for Windows 7 Embedded. Windows 8 does support USB boot. BootDriverFlags and PollBootPartitionTimeout are used to enable this. A default Windows 7 contains settings BootDriverFlags and PollBootPartitionTimeout. Both settins are disabled by default. Windows 7 kernel, hal and drivers are prepared for USB boot. But it's not a documented feature, may work or fail. fix_USB3_SD.cmd enable this settings at Windows 7. Intel offers USB 3.0 drivers for Windows 7, not for Windows 8. Therefore neither Intel supports USB boot. fix_USB3_SD.cmd adds Intel USB 3.0 settings at Windows 7. Windows XP doesn't support USB boot. XP USB boot is about 10 years old now: Post #16 describes USB boot registry settings, e.g. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\usbehci] "Start"=dword:00000000 "Group"="Boot Bus Extender" I've a Intel USB 3.0 series, Intel offers Version: drivers. This won't support your hardware. I get at boot from Intel USB 3.0: BootDriverFlags and PollBootPartitionTimeout: Windows 7 does boot Start=0 : Windows 7 BSOD 0x7b It's experience about used local hardware. Can I recommend start=0? Increase boot time? Or combine start=0 and PollBootPartitionTimeout?
