    RM Profile - USB Controller Driver for Windows XP

    I've just managed to get in a loan unit of the new RM Profile. Now, although RM tell me that it won't support Windows XP. I need to get Windows XP running on it to work with our network until we go down the route of Windows 7/8 and CC4 in the summer. (Not my choice, so don't jump on me! :P)

    Interestingly enough the RM Profile built perfectly using my standard RIS image and found every driver except one: Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller. Without this, I can't get any USB devices working! Now, I've run Unknown Devices and it's given me a little more information.

    The manufacturer seems to be "Elitegroup Commputer Sys" and the Hardware ID is "VEN_1B21&DEV_1042&SUBSYS_10421019&REV_00"

    I've searched far and wide but cannot find the driver anywhere. Can anyone help please?

    It's prob because it's a USB3 device, XP doesn't support it.

    Give Easily explore your PC, it may be able to find the driver for you

    Thanks, I just had the same idea but instead downloaded Speccy and it told me the motherboard is an ECS H61H2-TI. Amazingly, they still support Windows XP!

    Here is the driver (ASMedia USB 3.0 Host Controller Driver), just in case anyone else needs to do the same (unlikely!) :P

    The Hardware ID seems to indicate that it's an ASMedia XHCI Controller.

    I'd try pulling the ASMedia XP USB 3 drivers from here: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P8H67-M PRO

    Thanks for that Tom. Just out of interest, how did you find out that it was an ASMedia Controller from the Hardware ID? I tried searching it in Google, but only got useless results.

    I tend to google the vendor and first part of the device ID (VEN_1B21&DEV_1042 in this case).

    I'll double check the vendor at PCI Vendors | vendev.org

    Then I'll pull the driver down from a known site (Normally the larger Motherboard manufacturers [ASUS/Gigabyte/Intel] or a direct manufacturer [Realtek]) and check for the hardware ID in the .inf file.

    Long-winded, but 95% of the time, it lands me right on what I'm looking for
