Hello: I have a usb 3 flashdrive with the windows 7 installation image on it. It will load windows 7, but if I'm doing a clean installation, the USB 3 pci e card is not going to work unless the driver is installed. As I understand it, this pci e card's driver will not be loaded by the Windows 7 64bit Ultimate SP1 installation disk that I have prepared on the USB 3 flashdrive. Or, will it?
I am going on the hunch the it won't so at the outset of the installation, windows 7 offers a window that says "load drivers." I suppose it is there that I direct the installation to another place, say another usb flashdrive with the usb 3 pci E card's drivers.
My question is after I direct windows installation to the Pci e card's driver and load it, will the USB 3 Flashdrive from which the installation is being conducted then start to work at USB 3 speed, or will I not be able to get the USB 3 PCI E card to work until Windows 7 have completed installation; in such case, I might as well use a usb 2 flashdrive?
Thank you for your consideration, comments and advice.
