I have a Samsung NP900X4C-A05AU 15" Ultrabook.
It came with Windows 8 installed, but I have overwritten the OS with an existing Windows 7 64-bit installation from a desktop PC.
I downloaded the Windows 7 64-bit drivers from here
All the drivers installed OK, except for the USB 3.0 driver (v. 18.104.22.168).
My 2 USB 3.0 ports are not working at all under Windows 7 (the hardware is OK, as they worked OK when I used various Live CDs to copy the C:partition).
Every attempt to install the driver from setup.exe finished without any "finished" message.
I also installed Samsung Easy Software Manager - this reports that the USB 3.0 driver needs updating - then attempts to install v. 22.214.171.124 - but it reports that it failed.
I have attached a screendump from Device Manager.
The entry "Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 Host Controller" appeared after I did a manual install from a v. 126.96.36.199 subfolder ("USB30Drv\Files\x64).
I attempted to to get Windows to automatically find a driver for "Other Device | Unknown device" - but that failed too.
The webpage for the USB 3.0 driver (v. 188.8.131.52) has a popup note that may be relevant:
