    Hmm... but can you boot from this controller with USB 3.0 speeds? I have an older PCIe USB 3.0 card with a Renesas controller and my bios doesn't even see the darn thing. It would be nice to be able to run Linux off a USB 3.0 memory stick at high speed. Or use a USB 3.0 stick to install windows...

    I'm assuming the card I have, a Startech PEXUSB3S2, lacks a proper boot rom chip.
