X1 Carbon 4th Gen. (2016) Windows 7 64 Installation Problems!!! Driver Problem USB 3.0

Hi all, iam getting crazy with my X1 Carbon 4th Gen. I have problems to install Windows 7 64Bit Enterprise from USB or DVD, i tried both. It still appear the message of missing CD/DVD Drivers. I guess it's a USB 3.0 Driver Problem

 

Thing's i've already tried:

 

- I restored BIOS Settings. I disabled Win8 Compatibility Mode. Boot Options from Legancy to UEFI and back..

- Deploy Windows 7 on USB Device 3.0 and 2.0 with Windows7USB/DVDTool

- Deploy Windows 7 on DVD

- I tried all combinations with the Onlink+ Dockingstation and USB 2.0 Port....

- With all combinations i tried to load the USB3.0 drivers and AHCI/Chipset Drivers in the setup menu

- I reimaged Windows 7 with the Microsoft Toolkit and add a Hotfix for USB, USB Drivers....nothing

 

My Device:

Lenovo X1 Carbon 4th Gen. (2016) (Type 20FB, 20FC)

Intel Core i7-6500U Processor (2.50GHz)

8.0GB RAM

256GB SSD SATA

 

Please help me... :-(

The Support would not help me.

Same here, support was useless they quickly realize they did';t know how to help cause they don't know and quickly stated they are not obligated to help since my company didn't purchase a certain type of support. Nice

Re: X1 Carbon 4th Gen. (2016) Windows 7 64 Installation Problems!!! Driver Problem USB 3.0

I know it's been two years but I encountered the same problem. However I did solve it and now my X1 Carbon 4th gen runs on Windows 7 (what a speed in comparison to Win 8/10!).

Here is the solution:

1. Download USB 3.0 driver from Lenovo

2. Extract and preserve only this folder: USB3.0\Drivers\Win7\x64\ (the rest you can delete as it won't be needed)

3. Location of this driver is IMPORTANT. If your X1 has already a partition you can extract/copy the driver above to the C:\ or to the second partition, if exists. It HAS to be on your internal drive. Putting it on a USB drive will not give you access to the driver.

4. Once the installation of Windows 7 is started and the error message appears, browse for the driver and choose  {drive letter:}USB3.0\Drivers\Win7\x64\

5. A list with just one driver will appear. Do NOT select it. Hit the button 'Rescan' and you'll see a second driver called: Intel(R) USB 3.0 Root Hub. Choose it and hit 'Next'. That's it.

 

I'm attaching a picture of the selected driver:
