I have already tried that.
Windows 10 drivers for rev. 6.0 dont work
Start at the beginning then
First reinstall the AMD southbridge and northbridge drivers, and THEN try to install the VIA USB3 driver files. Obviously the USB3 is a tacked on chip instead of it being available in the southbridge as one would expect based on past method. Of course if you are running generic windows drivers for the bridge chips, then it won't be able to see the VIA added USB3 controller chip, probably an adjunct to the AMD controller south bridge.
No available drivers for WIndows 10 64 bit when it comes to AMD.
Testing it out right now
I am currently downloading then installing the motherboard driver. Is there a chance of it hurting my computer?
It will either install or not
If it won't install, then try to install using a compatibility mode for earlier 64 bit OS. It won't do anything worse than you already experience.
I do not have ATI or Radeon card

Did the other chipset drivers install in background?
Logging off for the night
We can resume this tomorrow
I certainly hope so
preparing to install via usb after the 'xp chipset'
clicking i agree... wait for it...
cant find supported hardware still
did i install it correctly
ive been doing research
one guy said
'Turn off PC, Turn off, Cut off power to the PSU, Wait about 10 seconds, Turn on.'
would that work
doubt it, but won't hurt
Also might try shorting the CMOS, the shorting jumper is near the coin battery. It resets the motherboard to defaults. Maybe there's just something wrong with the mobo. It's also possible you don't have revision 6 of this motherboard, but earlier one.
It's all fixed! (Also some other smaller issues too)
I first shorted the CMOS. That did nothing. (Made the startup a tiny bit faster, had to change default hdd for startup) Then I turned off the computer, turned off the PSU, and back on, turned on the computer. The issue apparently was that the USB controller didn't turn off for a long enough time. I was confused when it worked again, too. But I'm happy that it works! Thanks for all the help
Really glad it's working OK now
Also, I do not understand what southbridge and northbridge
means. I cannot see AMD southbridge-northbridge drivers for any of the OS's on the driver page.
The problem is, the Via Hyperion Pro USB drivers are not working for Windows 10 either, so the Etron drivers do not work as well. I have the rev. 6.0 of the motherboard.
Oh! Windows 10 drivers just released!
Let me try them, and I will post if it works
have you confused two motherboards?
I don't see any VIA chips here.
Re: OK, I see VIA chip for USB3 now
The executable in that 2nd link worked perfect!
I first tried to have device manager search the extracted folder for the driver, but its an actual executable you have to run in order to install the driver. SO once I realized that, it worked perfect!
I have Rev 6.0 on windows 7 home premium 64bit.
Via Chipset drivers fix this issue
I had the same issue. Looking at the GA-78LMT-USB3 manual, I found a block diagram that shows the 4USB3 ports are managed by a VIA VL805. On the CD I found multiple USB3 folders in the "Chipset" directory. The Gigabyte website only has the Etron drivers. These did not work for me. So I went down the list installing every dam USB3 driver on the disk. Still no result. I finally deleted the USB controller from "Device Manager" and rebooted. To my pleasant surprise. the controller was detected as a VIA device and the problem was solved.
Re: Via Chipset drivers fix this issue
@sk1965 What did your device manager list look like after you got everything to work.
I no longer have any errors but i still have a ? next to xHCI Root Hub 0 under other devices.
My USB3.0 still doesnt work.
