Can a new Wintel machine utilize-see-read USB 3.0 before specific driv

3 posts in this topic

Can a new Wintel machine utilize-see-read USB 3.0 before specific drivers installed?

Since I need to install USB 3.0 drivers on my Asus i7 machines (G73 & K55A),

does that mean it can't natively utilize-see-read USB 3.0 before any specific drivers are installed for those USB 3.0 ports?

If it CAN, then I'd want to use a new USB 3.0 flash drive to install from - - for the additional speed gains,

but if it canNOT, then I'd just continue to use the standard USB 2.0 stick.

Thanks for whoever can help clarify this.

Yes, Windows 8 support USB 3.0 controller out of the box.

A legacy Windows does not, integrate USB 3.0 drivers to boot environment first.

Use the USB 3.0 flash drive at a available USB 2.0 port.

Thanks cdob - -

now that I've finally got all my w7's configured, why not go through the rinse-repeat cycle again quickly w/ w8? ;)

Well, some have said ... just use Classic Start Menu, etc (which I love on w7) if you're not a finger-swiper,

and keep putting one foot in front of the other .... MS may've gone metro, but they're not going retro ~
