Windows 7: USB 2.0 Controller Hangs Win7 Install/Boot

07 Feb 2010   #11

Windows 7

I have the EXACT same problem. I bought Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium OEM and could not get it to install. It kept hanging on the first installation screen. Changed USB 2.0 in bios to 1.1 and it worked fine. I tried changing it back after installation and it would hang on the loading screen. So, apparently I'm stuck using USB 1.1 because I can't find a solution. Tried updating chipset drivers etc with no luck. We are using two different motherboards so I can only speculate that this is a Win 7 problem.

Windows 7 64bit

Skrave, I trawled the forums and found the answer somewhere. Sorry can't remember at the moment.

However the problem was fixed with a very simple answer. Apparently a known problem when connecting Keyboard / mouse to Win 7 via hubs, powered or not.
So it simply boiled down to the fact that my keyboard and mouse were plugged in via the hub. I solved it by simply plugging keyboard and mouse directly to PC and using the Hub in third USB port for all other gizmos.

Win 7 has worked with this hub ever since. Hopefully this arrangement is possible for you so give it a try.

Good luck!

Yea I guess our situations are a little different because my keyboard and mouse are directly plugged into my PC and it won't load Win7 when I have USB 2.0 enabled via the BIOS. Still no solution.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64
Same probelm - Windows 7 Ultimat 64

I ran into the exact same problem, Windows 7 64 Utlimate, using an Asus P5N7A-VM motherboard. My problem is even worse - I am using a KVM, so I by necessity am on a hub (the KVM is a hub).

I updated the BIOS, got the latest chipset drivers, and all that. Everyting works fine, as long as I have the USB 2.0 controller disabled in the BIOS. It worked beautifully under XP.

Actually, a lot of things worked beautifully under XP...
