    USB3.0 not recognised when image restoring

    I have USB3.0 ports on both a desktop and a laptop. I have HDDs in docking stations. When connected to the USB 2.0 ports, when I put the win7 disk in and go to image restore it finds the HDD/docking station and the restore file. Also with Macrium Reflect.
    But if I connect the HDD/docking station to the USB ports It will not find the HDD/docking station or file on either desktop or laptop with either Windows restore or Macrium restore..
    If the bios cannot detect USB 3.0 devises during boot what use is USB3.0 if can only use it once booted into windows? As one of the biggest advantages would be faster re-installs from images instead of only data moving once booted.

    Thanks Retired Geek. This may resolve the Macrium Reflect image restore but may not resolve the windows image restore issue. Also have tried win the winPE macrium disk and it still does not see the USB3 ports. Although I do not know if it has the updated drivers in the winPE disk.

    Thanks for response though.
