    20H2 removed Intel drivers- unable to force install Intel driver


    Optiplex 9020 i7-4790 Q87 chipset. Originally Windows 8 Pro but had been upgraded to Windows 10. I was running Win10 Pro 2004 and everything was working. My chipset, USB 3.0 drivers, and Sata driver were all Intel. I used Double Driver and backed up all my drivers. I then updated to 20H2 . On first boot Windows replaced all Intel's drivers with its own drivers. There are way less drivers than what DoubleDriver backed up. I used Doubledriver to restore all my backed up drivers.The only one of my backed up drivers that I could get to over-ride the Microsoft driver was for Sata/raid. None of the chipset or USB drivers would restore using Doubledriver. The PC has USB 3.0 ports in front and in back. It also has USB 2.0 ports in front and back. Using the Microsoft 3.0 controller driver, my 3.0 ports now run barely over 2.0 speed. I then tried to force install the Intel drivers I had backed up for the 3.0 controller and chipset but Windows would not use them. Got best driver already installed. So I downloaded the 3.0 Extensible controller driver and my chipset driver from Intel, , (these were the drivers I was using in 2004) and used intel's .exe file but Windows says 'best drivers for your device are already installed'. I tried to force the drivers, got same error. I disabled driver signature enforcement and still couldn't override the Microsoft drivers. I tried to install them in compatibility mode for Windows 8. Wouldn't install. I then uninstalled the USB 3.0 Host Controller. When I did it killed all my usb ports including the 2.0 ones both front and back. This should NOT have happened. How can I force Intel drivers to install to see if I can get my 3.0 ports to work correctly? And how can the the 3.0 controller driver control the 2.0 ports as well? 2.0 ports are independent of the 3.0 ports. I want to use Intel drivers. The best driver for my device can't be installed if everything is working worse than when I used all the the Intel drivers. It's like we are at Microsoft's mercy.This computer is not so old that the drivers should have to change when Windows updates its version. Here's a copy of device manager, and the error I get. Also usbtreeview that shows I have a usb 3.0 device connected at superspeed. Can someone tell me how the heck do I over-ride Microsoft drivers. Attachment 330681 Attachment 330683

    I have been searching for the Intel USB3.0 Extensible Host Drivers and have turned up these snippets.

    Yes, I tried that. Many times. That's what I mean when I said 'force the drivers".

    Yes, I tried that. Many times. That's what I mean when I said 'force the drivers". I notice all my attachments are not showing in my original post so here are the ones for device manager and the error again. And I've also tried 'search windows update'. It finds no new drivers.

    I'm wondering how you are measuring your USB performance, I have 20H2 using a two - three year old Intel B360, i5 (8th gen) system, the original Intel USB drivers have been changed to Microsoft ones (interestingly the same for the USB host on the RTX card, previously an Nvidia driver).
    However the speed of my ports has not changed, I regularly copy 16GB image files to an external USB3.0 (Seagate 3TB Disk), using 1909 - 2004 with Intel drivers I got 184MB/s per file, with the current 20H2 and Microsoft drivers with the latest chipset .inf from Intel, I get 184MB/s per file, so absolutely no change. I have tested just now with 2 external USB3 hard drives and a handful of Kingston and Integral flash drives (USB2 and USB3) and all perform the same as before.
    I am not saying you are mistaken in your assessment of performance but if you have issues it doesn't seem to be the drivers being supplied by Microsoft that are at fault here, at least not based on my system.
