I installed WIN7 pro with USB port 2.0, system works fine. then I installed USB3.0 drivers on it. after that, I got BSOD when booting up. I tried both USB3 and USB2, same result. It seems Win7 cannot load USB3 drive during boot process even the drivers are installed already?

Microsoft does not provide a USB 3.0 driver for Windows 7. Some vendors have their own USB3.0 drivers for Windows 7, but we have never tested it, so WinToUSB drive may not work properly if you use a third-party USB3.0 driver.

We recommend you to create a Windows 10/8 To Go drive, then you can boot it from a USB 3.0 port, it is more safe and reliable.
Experience sharing:
-Enabling USB3.0 - Windows 7 Pro x86
-Installed Win7 Win2USB on a 16Gb USB-Stick on a normal way

Upgrading from USB2.0 to USB3.0 Drivers:
- booting from usb2.0 usb-port (or from USB 3.0 without driver working as USB 2.0)

-downloaded Win7-Intel®_USB_3.0_eXtensible_Host_Controller_Driver_5.0.4.43 (lower versions are not successful) and unzip to desktop or...
-Setup is not installing as my motherboard does meet min requirements

-- execute device Manager >double click on yellow marked USB controller >update driver>.browse  my computer for driver software>let me pick from a list...>next>Have disk>Browse> ....>select iusb3hub.inf >OK> select Intel ® USB 3.1 extensible Host controller apply....

One more device (as unidentified ) will pop up , follow the above method but except last step , where we have to select Intel ® USB 3.0 Root Hub

-Reboot the PC

- booting from USB 3.0 port is working, too.
