Installing USB_3.0_Win7_18.104.22.168 drivers breaks MS recovery, as mouse support is broken.
Without the above driver, mouse support functions in a fully patched install on Win7x64 - including during recovery from the OS GUI.
Simply installing the driver breaks mouse support on reboot from Win7, making the Win7 recovery option useless.
When using recovery image from windows, the USB 3.0 will not use any drivers to work as USB 3.0, it will work as 2.0 versions. This will work until you load the latest drivers for USB 3.0 controller.
You missed the point completely.
On this motherboard, if you do *NOT* install the Intel USB 3.0 drivers, the mouse and Windows7 recovery work without issues. The system functions normally.
Simply installing the current Intel USB 3,0 drivers breaks mouse support in WIn7 and Win7 recovery no longer functions - on reboot, you are presented with a screen you can no longer control or enter data into.
