Windows 7: Used sysprep to move HDD to a NUC, but no USB 3.0 drivers

Used sysprep to move HDD to a NUC, but no USB 3.0 drivers

Hi all, I followed an old tutorial and used sysprep to bring the HDD to an Intel NUC (6 gen model). Unfortunately, I just realized after booting it up that there are no USB 3.0 drivers and there are only USB 3.0 ports on this machine, so I can't use a mouse or keyboard on this machine. I see there is a utility to load USB 3.0 drivers into a Windows 7 install image, but is there a way to load them into what I have currently? Thanks.

It's a known issue that a standard Win7 install does not have USB 3.0 drivers; these have to be added to the install media. On a machine with only USB 3.0 ports, they won't work unless these drivers are installed.

You could extract this iso to usb and boot it.

17514x64-v4.iso

You should be able to use dism++ to install drivers to your windows on the hard drive.

Thanks. Amazing piece of software. I had to redo the sysprep from a backup image and then load the USB3 drivers, then it was recognized upon OOBE start-up.
