Create a bootable Windows 7 USB flash drive and integrate the USB 3.0 Drivers
Platforms with Intel Braswell-SoC or Series-100 chipsets are missing the EHCI-mode (USB 2.0). These systems are working in modern XHCI-mode (USB 3.0), only. Unfortunately Windows does not support XHCI out of the box. This leads to missing keyboard/mouse function during installation. The following FAQ will guide you to integrate the correct driver to your Windows 7 installation.
First you need the following files:
- Windows 7/8.1/10 PC with 10Gb or more free space
- USB flash drive with 8GB or more free space
- RUFUS (Tool for extracting the ISO-File to an USB-Stick)
- Windows 7 ISO-File
- Shuttle Windows 7 USB-Patcher
- DVD to ISO program
Start the DVD to ISO program, select your DVD and select the location where you want to save the ISO file
Insert the USB flash drive into the computer and start the downloaded RUFUS-Tool
- Check if the selected USB flash drive is the right one.
- Select the right Windows 7 ISO-File.
- Click Start and wait until the process is complete.
Start the Shuttle USB-Patcher with right-click "as Administrator" and press “Next”
Close all instances of the Windows explorer and click “Next”
Click the update button, choose the USB which you have created before and press “Next”
The last step is starting the process by clicking the “Start” Button. The following process will take a long time, please be patient! After the process is finished, check if the Installation was successful and close the program
Try to install Windows 7 again.
