Preliminary notes: Although the Windows Operating Systems from Win8 up natively do support many USB 3.0 Controllers by using a generic Microsoft USB 3.0 driver, it is often better to install the specific USB 3.0 drivers, which have been developed, optimized and released by the manufacturer of the related USB 3.0 Controller. Unfortunately some manufacturers of USB 3.0 Controllers offer just a compressed Drivers & Software Set, but not the 'naked' drivers, which can be integrated into an OS image or manually installed from within the Device Manager.

Tips for the manual installation of USB 3.0/3.1 drivers: • Before starting with the installation, you should make sure, that your input devices (keyboard and mouse) are connected with USB ports from another manufacturer or - if available - to PS/2 ports. Another option is to use a 'Virtual Network Computing' (VNC) Tool and to execute the installation of the USB 3.0/3.1 drivers from another Mobile system (look ). • Expand the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' section of the Device Manager and check the HardwareIDs of the listed USB Controllers (right click onto them>'Properties'>'Details'>'Property' >'HardwareIDs') to find out, which of the Controllers is the one, where you want to update the driver software. • As first step you have to update the driver software of the USB 3.0/3.1 Controller. • After the reboot the Device Manager will show within the 'USB Controllers' section devices with missing drivers.
