My new USB 3.0 board works on Windows 2000. :thumbup

Detail


Wow, how did I miss this! Would this driver work on990FX Sabertooth R2.0?


OK I tested, USB 3.0 works !! :yes:

When I first installed the driver, my SDHC UHS-I flash drive was reading 75-80 MB/s but after I rebooted it dropped down to 42 MB/s. Why is that?

I think that it is no problem with WDFLDR.SYS, but not handled functions exist in NTOSKRNL

EtwRegister
EtwUnregister
EtwWrite
IoSetDevicePropertyData
PcwAddInstance
PcwCloseInstance
PcwCreateInstance
PcwRegister
PcwUnregister

and Kernel Bcrypt functions are userd.

BCryptCloseAlgorithmProvider
BCryptCreateHash
BCryptDestroyHash
BCryptFinishHash
BCryptGetProperty
BCryptHashData
BCryptOpenAlgorithmProvider

I can confirm Intel usb 3.0 ports work as usb 2.0 ports and are perfectly recognized on windows XP x86. Intel created a "null driver" (given with inf update utility):

; ****************************************************************************
; ****************************************************************************
; **    Filename:  PantUSB3.INF                                              
; **    Abstract:  Null driver for Intel(R) USB 3.0 devices
; **    Last Update: December 06, 2011 (Version 9.3.0 Build 1018)
; ****************************************************************************
; ****************************************************************************
And intel usb 3 drivers need WDFLDR.SYS (Kernel Mode Driver Framework LOADER) which doesn't exist on XP and i think it only exists on windows 7.

The good news is that VIA chipset included on GIGABYTE Z77X-D3H works perfectly fine on windows XP and do provide read/write USB 3.0 Speeds.
So VIA chipsets might perhaps be ported to windows 2K.



I've tried running w2k on z77 but couldn't do it. Too bad, the z77x-UD5H is nice hardware.
