    Intel DH77DF - installing Windows 7 or 8 via a USB 3.0 Key

    Cov

      Hi,

       

      does anyone know how to install Windows 7 or 8 using the higher transfer speed of a USB 3.0 key with an Intel DH77DF mainboard?

      As far as I know the procedure differs between Windows 7 and 8. If you know of an easy to follow step-by-step guide, please let me know.

       

      Thank you

       

      PS: Transfer speeds for reading in comparison:

       

      DVD drive

       

      1x = 1.39 MB/s

      2x = 2.77 MB/s

      4x = 5.54 MB/s

      6x = 8.31 MB/s

      8x = 11.08 MB/s

      10x = 13.58 MB/s

      12x = 16.62 MB/s

      16x = 22.16 MB/s

      18x = 24.93 MB/s

      20x = 27.70 MB/s

       

      USB 2.0


      • effective throughput up to 35 MB/s
      • actual transfer speeds are usually much lower, from a few MB/s upwards

       

      USB 3.0

       

      • theoretical maximum transmission speed of up to 625 MB/s
      • actual transfer speeds are usually much lower, from about 40 MB/s to 170 MB/s
