    Default 970 pro3 + USB mass storage drivers

    I'm trying to install win7 ultimate (lite) small size version in other words and my usb sticks are not detected.Win7 says i need a mass storage driver...

    I have tried the usb 3.0 drivers without luck.
    When i read the readme nothing's mentioned about the compatibilty with the southbridge SB950 (it controls sata and usb devices no ?).. i find that strange

    So here it is, i'm stuck

    drivers page:
    ASRock > 970 Pro3

    A PC without an OS, or an OS just being installed has virtually no drivers, so most things won't work, no surprise really. That includes the USB 3.0 ports.

    Use the USB 2.0 ports on the boards I/O panel for installing Windows from a USB flash drive, that has always worked for me.

    I guess the "2 x Ready-to-Use USB 3.0 Ports" on the I/O panel are not really ready. Or your version of Windows does not have drivers for those USB 3.0 ports.
