USB 3.0 is not supported on Windows XP. If the user installs fresh Windows XP Operating System, there will be a yellow bang in the device manager for the USB 3.0 controller (PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E31). This is because there is no inbox driver for USB on Windows XP.

To remove this yellow bang without disabling the controller, the user may install Intel INF(Chipset) driver. Intel INF(Chipset) will rename the controller to "Intel (R) Series/C216 Chipset Family Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller - 1E31" and transfer the controller under “System Devices”.
Even though the Intel INF(Chipset) driver is installed, the USB 3.0 port will still function as USB 2.0.
