Just saw your post. If the guide I just posted a couple minutes ago is what you already followed and it did not work, then I am assuming the issue is that the usb3 drivers you injected into the pen drive are not being recognized. Note that the only way to get usb3 ports working on a 370/390 board is to use the Win10 drivers designed for that board. The drivers will work on win7. BUT, in order to bypass the windows message of "your version is not compatible with this driver" you have to follow the instructions in the overclock.net link I posted yesterday, which discusses how to extract the drivers from the win10 driver zip file.

Its no bother, but I don't think I can describe it any more clearly than the 11 steps listed in the very first post of the referenced link. You will be downloading from the asus website. The drivers are not specific to asus, they are intel drivers. As it says in the second post, you will need to click "show all drivers" to find the ones the thread starter talks about. The usb drivers are a part of the chipset driver, but I recommend you follow all the steps.

So after researching i finally came to the conclusion that Windows 7 can not be installed in any possible way when using a z390

there are no drivers compatible.

the only way would be to use an external pci-e -> usb card but it's honestly too much work, im just gonna return my z390 and get a prime II z370 instead

Thank you for the help anyway!:)
