Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Solution: either u havent enabled USB 3.0 in your BIOS or u have but your pci-e frequenzy is over 100. To make usb 3.0 work u need to set pci-e frequenzy to 100, even if its 101 <- usb 3.0 ports wont work. Don't know if its on all mobos but atleast on few.

Why doesn't Microsoft support USB3.0?
G'day, We all know that in order to use USB3.0 ports, we need to install 3rd party drivers (e.g. Etron, NEC etc.). Sometimes this can be a real pain in the bum. With the increasing popularity of cheap USB3 storage devices, it seems logical to me that Microsoft would write and support their own...
