Windows 7: USB3 install fail: feature transfer error: 2

USB3 install fail: feature transfer error: 2

I tried installing my NEC USB3 3.0 Host Controller File after a repair/upgrade install. Now, I get the above error during the driver setup. I downloaded the driver directly from Asus. Any ideas on the workaround?

Thanks

Er No!!

Is the USB controller recognised? are there any drivers already installed? if so can you uninstall them

Can you turn USB 3 off in the BIOS? if yes do it, start your PC switch off the PC switch USB 3 back on again and try again

You could try using CCleaner both normal clean and registry don't forget to make a registry backup and then try installing it again
I hope this helps

"Edit" have a look here there are other drivers that I believe should work if you can install them; http://www.sevenforums.com/drivers/1...-0-driver.html

Thanks. I tried that. I couldn't install the driver again. What I first did was I wanted to update the driver....just in case the repair/upgrade wasnt 100%. 3/4 through the setup update I got a popup asking for the installation directory and it wast pointing to one of those HKLD\Software entries. I cancelled the setup. I then uninstalled it, but before I did that I checked the device manager and the USB 3 driver was there and recognized.

Afterwards I got the above Error 2. I did a system restore and I got my driver back. However, I don't like this upgrade/repair. My PC is now running slower and as you can see, there are issues with the repair.

Just out of interest why did you do the repair install in the first place? If you really have so many problems it might be a better idea and save time to do a fresh install
