Asus Z77 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 105

The Intel USB3 driver for Windows 8. Generally people complain about speed. Yesterday I was just hoping it would read my drive.

It has been mentioned in this thread, but no solution was posted (as far as I can tell). Because Win 8 has a native USB3 driver, Intel won't release theirs. Which is dumb, since it makes those USB3 ports usable.
I have the P77V -Deluxe or whatever. I'm putting together are revamped rig and I thought, hey, why not try this Windows 8 I got? I've liked it enough on other computers. This is the mistake, but I don't want to buy another Win7 copy...
Now I don't know about you guys, but I have a large external that I copy backups to in case my internal drives fail. It's 3TB and USB3 (I don't know if this part matters), so it gets the three last backups. The Intel ports will not read it. Asus ports are fine and dandy. See with the Intel ports, I get the recognition sound, it pops up in USB and devices, sometimes even in disk management, but never have I been able to access it. It is a large drive, so it isn't exactly instant, but eventually it vanishes from devices because it spins down and turns off.
All my other stuff is USB2, but I think it is purely size related, because the ports work fine for every thing else that I have, all of which is smaller than 1TB. Did I mention that the Intel USB2 ports also won't read the drive? Fun times.

So the Intel driver doesn't work on Windows 8, but without it, my front panel USB3 will become instantly useless.

After much looking and getting mostly results about installing Windows 8 on a 3TB drive, I finally thought to myself, hell, this driver package has INF files. That's basically a universal installer. If I can alter it enough, I should be able to install it. I open the file and thought to myself, I am too tired for this, so instead, I turned to google and found that someone had already done this. Not only that, it is a longer process than I imagined.

Here is a legible guide based on a guide by a legend named ekko.

My 3TB drive is now recognised on all USB3 ports, Intel or Asus! The USB2 ports still don't recognise it, but that's OK. I was only hoping to compare speeds. I was so happy. Too bad I still have to reload windows a few times before this is all done...


EDIT: If this could be added to the OP, that would be great.
Thanks for this.

I see.. far too little time on my hands to handle something like this, and don't know most of the places to find a ton of the drivers. If anyone steps in thans in advance.

Happy Easter everyone! I'm back and will be finishing updating the OP later today.

On a side note, I think I broke the OP because nothing is showing (at least for me). redface.gif Fixed it.

Thanks for this. I was taking a look because the .inf files he has are from the older version and then compared this against the instructions the original person provided. There are few differences; these .inf files retain the catalog file entry while instructions tell us to remove it and NTAMD64 hasn't been added under Manufacturer line?

Anyhow, can someone tell me what date it shows for you using this method in the Device Manager? I updated the .inf files for the newer version manually and it appears to work ok - the version is now 1.07.248 but the date is still from 04/12/2012?

That's fine. I added a link next to the Intel driver for those who are using Windows 8.

I basically just followed the directions and manually edited the newer .inf files myself. My results are here. I think 4 December 2012 is the correct date for the 1.07.248 drivers, so I believe you did it correctly.

For reference, here are the relevant lines for my "iusb3hub.inf" file. It should be the same for the "iusb3xhc.inf" file as well (save for a few minor differences).

Using what I had above and following the directions on the page (basically just rebooting into Windows w/o driver enforcement enabled and manually updating the driver for the host controller and then rebooting again w/o driver enforcement and there will be an "unknown device" which needs to be installed: it is the USB 3.0 hub) I was able to get V1.07.248 of the driver installed (driver date is 4 December 2012).

so is it OK to use the .inf files that are posted here? http://plugable.com/2012/12/01/windows-8-and-intel-usb-3-0-host-controllers or are they old? anyone mind uploading their pre-edited ones if there are any?

and what exactly does this give us over the default microsoft drivers, better performance/speed over the USB3.0? seems a bit weird that they won't release them because MS has their own.. I don't really understand that(??)

Only one thing changed (that I could find) and that's the date and driver revision. Just change those to match the new ones. I.e. this line: DriverVer=12/04/2012,1.0.7.248
