Okay, let's get started now.

#first. What to prepare?

1.1. Create a folder named as USB3 in the drive partition D, E .. (it's up to you). Here I will create the directory USB3 in the drive partition E Please.

1.3. Download the original Windows 7 installer, if you already have it, but if not, you can download it here or here!

1.4. Download the USB 3.0 driver corresponding to the machine, if you do not know then you can check the following: Right-click This PC => select Manage => then select continue Drvice Manager as shown below.

Now you pay attention to the driver of the USB. As you can see, my computer is on Intel USB 3.0 controller.

#2. How to add USB 3.0 driver to the Windows 7 installer

+ Step 1: After downloading, please extract the file. Then access the driver folder of the downloaded file (access to 32bit or 64bit versions depending on the version of Windows 7 you want to integrate.)

For example, the driver file I have just downloaded, I will access the following link:

Intel (R) _USB_3.0_eXtensible_Host_Controller_Driver_5.0.4.43_v2 DriversWin7x86

Because I want to integrate USB 3.0 for Windows 7 32bit so I will open the folder x86.

+ Step 2: Then copy all the files ending in.inf, .sys, .cat…. Generally copy all the files similar to the picture above into the folder driver located in the directory USB3 that we created in preparation.

In the driver folder, there will be files .cat .inf .sys:

  • File .inf A file containing information and commands to be run.
  • File .cat The file contains the certificate.
  • File .sys is the driver.
