Windows 7: BSOD while installing Win7 and loading USB 3.0 Drivers

BSOD while installing Win7 and loading USB 3.0 Drivers

Hi all,

I am trying to install Win7 on my SSD for my laptop, but I need to load USB 3.0 drivers before installing.

However, when I select the right driver and proceed, I get BSOD'd.

I'm going to try different drivers now, but if anyone has different advice, it would be welcomed.
EDIT: Tried drivers from Intel's site rather than laptop manufacturer. No dice.

Error number: 0x0000007E

Cheers

How are you trying to install Windows. Are you using a DVD or a USB thumb drive.

From a USB, hence the need for 3.0 drivers

Can't you just install through a USB 2.0 port?

Windows 7 doesn't have USB 3 drivers. Have you tried installing it without worrying about drivers. If the USB drive has been set up properly it should just load without having to worry about drivers.

Unfortunately I have 4 USB 3.0 ports. I've always been fine before, having done at least a dozen fresh installs on this machine.

The only new thing with the machine is the SSD in it, so I might try taking it out.

I've never set a USB up with drivers beforehand, so I'll try something like this and see where I get to.

So setting the USB drive up like this guide advised worked fine.

Still not sure why I got the BSOD but I guess the problem is solved.

In aid of this thread I also tried taking the SSD out, didn't work.

Thanks for your help all.
