I'm posting this in case anyone else has a need (and does a search). I had occasion to recover my system image from a USB 3 drive using the windows 7 64 bit recovery disk. Since USB-3 is not supported during this process, I had to install the drivers during the recovery. (Note that instead you could plug your USB-3 drive into a regular USB port and the image will be detected, but the speed is very, very slow.) If you wish to take advantage of the higher USB-3 speed, do this: Here's the link: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS015025 The file is named 8ay208ww.exe and is 6.8MB Run the .exe and copy the files to a new folder - but do not install them. The required files are located in here: Files > x64 Listed are the USB-3 driver files which are required to be available before the image is detected on the drive: nusb3co.dll nusb3hub.cat nusb3hub.inf <<<<<<<< nusb3hub.sys nusb3xhc.cat nusb3xhc.inf <<<<<<<< nusb3xhc.sys I copied them to a flash drive. The two .inf files indicated are selected (one at a time) during the image restore. They both relate to USB 3. When the drivers are installed, the drive will be detected and you can proceed to select the image file.
