Driver Error Occurs When Installing Windows® 7 from a USB Drive

If you receive a driver error when you are trying to install Windows® 7 (or an older Windows version) from a USB drive, double check whether that drive is plugged into a USB 3.0 port.  Windows 7, and Windows versions older than 7, don’t have the necessary USB 3.0 drivers needed to use the USB 3.0 port. This can lead to driver errors on install. If you move the USB drive to a USB 2.0 port instead this should resolve the issue.
