|From the manual:|
Note: Due to a lack of legacy EHCI controller support from Intel on the 6th generation CPU, the USB 3.0 ports of the BRIX unit are not compatible with USB 2.0 devices.
To help you install your operating system, GIGABYTE provides a tool which is preloaded on the driver CD called "Windows Image Tool". This tool helps you to create an installation USB dongle which includes the driver necessary for backward compatibility. To install Windows 7 using this tool, please follow these steps :
- Plug a USB 3.0 drive (4GB minimum) into another computer.
- Launch the "Windows Image Tool".
- Add the Windows 7 installation files and USB 3.0 drivers to your USB drive.
- Plug the USB drive to your BRIX unit and follow the steps to install the OS.
After the installation of the OS and drivers, the USB 3.0 ports will be backward compatible with USB 2.0 devices.
