Windows 7 OEM Fails to Install USB Audio Stack at Setup

Last response: in Windows 7

Hello,
I bought a Medion Akoya Core i3
based computer running Windows 7.

I later purchased a Marshall MXL
990 USB Condenser Microphone for
purposes of recording and web
broadcasting.

The mic would not install properly
and was seen as a 'USB Composite
Device', rather than a USB Audio
device. A review of the registry
and USB driver stack revealed that
the USB Audio stack did not install
at Windows Setup. A clean install
of Windows failed to install said
USB Audio stack. It seems that
no OEM version of Windows 7
will install these drivers, as I've
found friends who have the same
problem.

How do I do a manual install of
the core Windows USB Audio driver
stack?

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium.

New information! This problem may go
all the way back to Vista OEM, in which
case I've definitely discovered a bug.

Please see my thread on the MS Answers
Forum regarding it; still no definite fix offered.

I've managed a 'down and dirty' fix
to the problem, but unless either Marshall
updates its firmware, or MS supplies a Windows
update that addresses the problem, I don't consider
this "solved". Please see thread on MS Answers Forum
to see what I did. I hope this will be of some assistance
to other users.
