Just add the USB drivers to the Windows 7 installer.

 

MSI Smart Tool seems to work for everybody to add USB 3 and NVMe drivers to a bootable Windows 7 USB installer.

 

Also, the artificial block on Windows Update in Windows 7 and 8 for newer CPUs can easily be permanently removed with this patch: https://github.com/zeffy/wufuc

Um. Can you have 2 OS's on 1 drive? I don't think you can right? Or am I making an ooopsie? @anyoneelse 

Have you correctly formatted the USB to install Windows 7?

Try using a USB to PS2 adapter. for your keyboard, or mouse.

You can. I dual booted Windows 10 Home and Xubuntu 16.04 on my old PC. I just had to partition the drive.
