    Can't install Intel eXtensible usb 3.0 on my pc after uninstalling it

    I am in desprete need of help. I was having issues with my intel usb 3.0 ports so I thought I would try uninstalling the drivers then reinstalling them however whenever I try to reinstall them I get a message saying "Your computer does not meet minimum requirements" It's important I get these working as it's the only ports my capture card work in. Anyone know a work around or anything I am kind of desperate here, I need the capture card for an upcoming event.

    USB 3.0/3.1 Drivers (original and modded)

    See this section , open the Spoiler for more info:

    E. Intel USB 3.0 and 3.1 Drivers

    Important notes:
    • The Intel USB 3.0 driverpacks do contain at least 3 different USB 3.0 drivers:
      • an "Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver" named iusb3xhc.sys, has to be installed by pointing to the file named iusb3xhc.inf (after the installation the related device is named "Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller"),
      • an "Intel(R) USB 3.0 Hub Driver" named iusb3hub.sys, has to be installed by pointing to the file named iusb3hub.inf (after the installation the related device is named "Intel(R) USB 3.0 Root Hub") and
      • an "Intel(R) USB 3.0 Host Controller Switch Driver" named iusb3hcs.sys (only usable/needed for systems with an USB Controller "Switch".Notes: The related USB Switch device is usually named "PCI Express Root Complex" and listed within the "System Devices" section of the Device Manager. It has to be installed by pointing to the file named iusb3hcs.inf. After the installation the Switch device may be renamed to "PCI bus".

    Working fix

    I have discovered a fix for this!

    If your issue was that you discovered your USB ports were not working, and removed/uninstalled the Intel eXtensible USB 3.0 Drivers and discovered you couldn't reinstall them - I HAVE THE SOLUTION FOR YOU!

    Go to this link and install the modded eXtensible drivers.

    1) Go to this link and Scroll down to E. Intel USB 3.0/3.1 Drivers:

    2) Open the spoiler and go to B. Latest modded Intel USB 3.0/3.1 drivers

    3) If you have windows 8 or 10, download from the first section either the 64 or 32 bit system (based on what system you have)

    4) Unpackage the zip file somewhere, open Certificate folder and then run ImportCertificate.cmd

    (If you have any issues go to this link:

    5) Now run DPInst64.exe (64bit version)

    6) Follow steps and restart your system.

    7) Your USBs should work now!Enjoy! :)
