USB 3.x/XHCI Generic driver for Win7 and Vista

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I saw this and I think it may be interesting for all people that still want/like to use this old systems:


USB 3/XHCI driver stack for Windows 7/Vista

Some files were modified in order to improve/provide support for Windows 7/Vista.
There are no warranties, expressed or implied, regarding the use of these files.
Not supported by Microsoft!
By downloading anything you agree with this.

Based on the work of Mov AX, 0xDEAD from Win-Raid forum, otherwise we would never know that the Windows 8 driver could be ported to older OSes.

It's a truly generic USB 3/XHCI host driver, even supporting USB Attached SCSI Protocol (UASP) devices.

Supports USB 3/XHCI host controllers from any manufacturer (USB 3.0/3.1/3.2).

Supports 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) systems.

- Download and install the Security Update for Kernel-Mode Driver Framework (KMDF) version 1.11:

- Download and install the USB 3 driver stack for Windows 7/Vista:

- Clearly, Microsoft originally intended to release the driver as an update to Windows 7, but later decided to make it a Win8 exclusive and added artificial locks.
- USB Attached SCSI Protocol (UASP) driver is a standalone driver. For the first time, you need to install it manually.
- Removed/disabled all telemetry crap.
- INF file is MUI enabled, supporting localized strings for 22 languages.
- Drivers double-signed, thanks to canonkong from Win-Raid forum, so no issues with Driver Signature Enforcement on 64-bit/x64 systems, even without SHA-256 updates.
- Drivers can be integrated into installation media after integration of KB2864202 above.
- canonkong has thoroughly tested the driver's stability and performance for several days with most (if not all) existing controllers......
