The card itself seems to be working as the white light is on and my usb 3.0 Western Digital portable HD starts spinning. Problem is windows never sees the hardware. The drivers installed but I get the error no USB 3.0 host controller when trying to start it.
My motherboard is kind of old so maybe a compatibility issue? I disabled the speed spectrum option as recommended but still no hardware found. The one mistake I made initially was installing hardware then installing drivers but I don’t see how this really impacts me.
Here is my mobo btw _
