Install Windows 7 via USB3

This isn’t exactly a guide, more a warning…

I just attempted to use a Gigabyte F2A85XM-D3H motherboard in RAID with Windows 7 as the OS and no matter what was attempted it would return a Drive not found error when trying to select the target partition during setup.

To allow for installation you seem to be forced to use a USB2 port, although this does take slightly longer this post has been put up to save the time needed to troubleshoot the issue to install windows.

This issue has been noticed with AMD RAID Drivers on a A85x chipset.
