BSOD on boot after successful Windows 7 installation

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.
