> SP1 hal.dll is correct and no further patching is needed.

OK, if I try kernel patched by XP64G.EXE with oroginal SP1 hal it reboots immediatelly after selecting boot menu entry. But the patching differs from how it was done on forum and looks like it cannot be mixed.
BTW I tried to make MD5 of all windows files before and after patching by XP64G.EXE and there was not difference (expect some logs and prefetch files) so it's clean. It only adds new patched files.

> I'd rather replace whole usb*.sys with Win2003R2 SP2.

Yes, maybe there also was some hot fixes of usb* files later SP2. And same for XP SP3, I have unofficial SP4 from collected about 100 hotfixes after SP3 that may contains updated usb* drivers. I don't have any problems with USB (flashes, external HDD) so maybe it was solved in some post-SP3 hotfix.
usbhub.sys - 5.1.2600.5512 14.4.2008 (probably original SP3)
usbport.sys - 5.1.2600.6437 9.8.2013 (probably post-SP3 hotfix)

Aha, so it rather depends on num of cons than transfer rate of single con, I never use more than a few cons...

DOS gives me freedom to unlimited HW access.
