    I'm having a problem loading the motherboard software - using the express installer. Its an Intel board that claims to have USB 2.0 type ports, however after I had the OS installed etc. I pluged in my iPod only to get an error saying I had a fast device plugged into a slow port.
    I then remembered I had forgotten to install the MB software, aso I tried to install using the Express installer CD that came with the board. This got about 50% through and then put the system into shutdown, upon re-start you get to the windows start up screen and then nothing, you never reach the login screen.
    So I decided to start at the beginning again and re-loaded the OS. So I was back getting the same USB error. Then I tried installing the MB software manually (as recommended on the Intel site) but again I have the same issue. So to get anywhere I need to install the OS again.
    What am I doing wrong?
    Do I need to get the MB software loaded first? and if so how do I wipe the HD in order to do that.
    Or
    With the OS installed how do I install the MB stuff and get the USB ports functioning properly?

    The reason why you are getting the message is because your motherboard might not support USB 2.0 speed.

    Read this forum http://forums.techguy.org/t340223.html and you should be able to find out whether your motherboard can support USB 2.0.

    Hi,
    I checked and it does support USB 2.0 speed so must be something else, any ideas?

    Thanks

    Make sure you are plugging into the USB port attached to the motherboard, found on the backside of the computer.
