My mainboard doesn't support booting from usb 3.0. It boots well from usb 2.0. Is there any way to boot from 3.0, booting any program or something from 2.0 before? Would GRUB booted from usb 2.0 fix it?

Linux live. It boots well from usb 2.0 but speed is very low. My pendrive can go up to 130/80 MB/s on usb 3.0, so it's practically faster than an ordinary hard drive, because of latency.

This is more of a hardware limitation rather then a OS limitation, USB3 will work regardless of your OS but dont expect the speed you will get with native USB3 support via hardware


You know you want me baby!

The problem is that my hardware doesn't have native usb 3.0 support. In Windows I have to use additional drivers downloaded from website. I'm looking for some trick like Linux live from usb 2.0 loading Linux live from usb 3.0, because usb 3.0 works well in Linux and I don't have to install additional drivers when i'm using Linux.
