The problem is that the Windows 7 install image lacks the drivers necessary to operate the USB sockets.  You need to modify the install image to include the USB drivers.  Intel provided a tool to do this, but they have withdrawn it. However, Gigabyte provide a similar tool that is still available.  So, if you can find the USB drivers, you can modify the Windows 7 install image and complete the installation.

 

Unfortunately, I don't think that you will be able to find USB drivers.  I am not familiar with your model, but I think that it is a recent one.  Both Intel and Microsoft have stated that they will not provide any drivers or updates for Windows 7 for recent laptops:

 

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4012982/the-processor-is-not-supported-together-with-the-windows-version-that

 

I don't know for certain that this applies to you.  Your laptop has an Intel chipset, so if any drivers are available for Windows 7, they will be available on the Intel web site.  If you cannot find them there, then they don't exist.

 

You should consider installing Windows 10 on your laptop.
