the USB3 ports are backwards compatible with USB2. This means you should be able to create a Windows installer on a USB2 thumbdrive.

Can you try that and let us know?

Yes. i tried it and didn't work.
seems like the windows need a driver to completely detect the usb sockets.
really bad idea that a laptop have only two usb 3 sockets.

what about i use e-sata port and a pc dvd drive to install windows?

Hi,

If you plug your mouse into the USB socket/port, does it work?

Hi,

In your BIOS, can you check to see if there is a 'USB Legacy' setting or similar, and make sure it is enabled.
