Having Trouble Installing Windows 7 By USB With Your GIGABYTE 100 Series Motherboard?
Some users are having trouble installing Windows 7 by USB drive on their systems that have a GIGABYTE 100 series motherboard inside.
The problem lies in the fact that Windows 7’s installer is only compatible with an older type of USB driver. The GIGABYTE 100 series motherboard uses a newer kind of USB driver, meaning you will get an error when trying to install Windows 7.
Thankfully there is a fix for this which allows you to package the updated driver on to your USB driver.
In order to build the patched version of Windows 7, you’ll need a few things:
1) A genuine copy of Windows 7 or iso file
2) A USB drive with over 4GB of storage
3) A separate computer
4) The Windows Image Tool available for free from GIGABYTE
Once you download the Windows Image Tool from GIGABYTE the process is fairly easy. Here’s the process you need to follow step-by-step:
1) Open the tool from GIGABYTE. There’s no need to install it.
2) In the source option select your disc drive
3) In the destination path pick your USB drive.
4) Make sure the ‘add USB drivers’ option is selected
5) Click start and wait for the process to finish.
Note: if you just need to add the USB drivers to an existing ISO you can do that from the source option.
