!! UPDATE: 12/6/2016- If the script doesn’t work, try changing the index number being adjusted to #2.


2 things need to happen to fix this:

  1. Windows 7 install PE needs the Windows 7 USB 3.0 driver package injected.
    USB 3.0 Host Controller Driver: http://pc-dl.panasonic.co.jp/d…
    USB 3.0 Driver: http://pc-dl.panasonic.co.jp/d…
  2. A registry hack (for lack of a better term) needs to be imported into the Windows PE registry.

Here is a script that updates the WIM with the fix.
