Windows 7: Installing Win 7 with only USB 3 ports

Nozzle (edit - also using an SATA DVD-ROM rather than USB so that does at least clear this problem)
If you are not able to use usb2 or ps2, the other thing I can think of is try integrating the files extracted from the chipset executable.

AS well as the three zip files in my earlier post

This one ( it is an update )

and looks like these need to be copied into windows system32
Attachment 409092

Then when you have integrated all of them and the three zips from earlier post, use win10 installation media and replace the win10 install.wim/install.esd with the win7 install.wim you have just prepared.
