USB recognition

Why would a newly imaged laptop not find the 3.0 USB memory drive? I have updated all drivers and see no errors in the device manager? I can see the USB drive on other laptops but not the newly imaged laptop and again, there are no signs of errors? This is a Lenovo T450S laptop and no docking station. All updates are also there.

What does newly imaged mean? Backup and restore to new hardware? What tool was used?

we use ghost here to image laptops after they come in. I have never had an issue finding the USB drive. Other laptops see it right away?

Have you installed the USB3 drivers after image was restored?
If yes then check in BIOS if USB interface is enabled. Some BIOSes have an option to disable USB.

I will check now. That may be it. This is a first for not seeing all drives including USB.
