This actually didn't work for me with my Gigabyte mobo... I had to burn a disc!

Is this because AMD doesn't recognize usb 3.0 ?

How can I fix this so I can bypass it and go straight to the Windows install?

Thanks

You (both) needed to integrated the USB 3.0 drivers.

That was one of the first things I did... the USB Flashdrive just didn't work! I think I chronicled my pitfalls either here or on another forum.

 

But the bottom line was with my Gigabyte mobo... I HAD to burn a DVD to get Windows 7 to install!

Did you try a different USB port or the front panel one? Sometimes some of the ports are from extra hubs or controllers (such as asmedia).

Yes, I tried 2 other ports and at that point, I was over it! It was easier for me at that time to just burn a disc and call it a day. I spent like 4 days troubleshooting that install and I was eager to try whatever would work the fastest without further research and lost time. I was working against the clock since it took nearly a month to find a valid mobo, as all of my items from Newegg were about to expire past their return window!

I'm going to reiterate once more for people who aren't reading the first post:

OPTICAL MEDIA IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED FOR INSTALLING WINDOWS 7.

As well, I'd like to make my list much more comprehensive:

Can people please prominently indicate:
Quote:
Did they try booting with a NON-SLIPSTREAMED Win7 DVD to test if the USB 2.0 ports worked "out of the box"? And if the PS/2 port(s) worked?

The purpose of this is to determine, without knowing in detail which USB 2.0 microcontroller a mobo manufacturer used, if mobos exist which have USB 2.0 and/or PS/2 functionality without needing a driver.

Try using this tool : LINK
It's from Polish forum : LINK.

Basicly : It updates iso image with USB 3.0 and NVMe drives as well as updating Win installer itself with version that's more compatible with new hardware (like Ryzen or Kaby Lake).

Downsides to this program are two :
1) Updating image itself can take quite a bit of time (depending on internet speed, CPU spped, OS and destination hard drives speeds).
2) It will not work on moded images (like ones containing x86 and x64 versions of Windows 7).
I used Win 7 SP1 x64 and installation was fine (I didn't use it on newest hardware tho).

I have a PS/2 mouse keyboard. so is it just a case of building the unit, installing windows 7 and installing the correct drivers like I did with my previous build. Is the only issue that the USB drivers don't work initially?

If you can provide more system specs we can try to judge for you how much trouble you might have - assuming you haven't long since already accomplished the Win7 installation.

GENERAL PSA:

We need more motherboard information crowdsourced here. I don't have the money or the contacts to get all the Ryzen boards out there just to test Win7 install media all day, so folks, a little help please? smile.gif

Didn't have to reinstall Windows 7 and I installed the USB drivers with a ps/2 adaptor for the keyboard. Ps/2 mouse didn't work. Was no problem what so ever
