Aspire R5 471T-71W2 windows 7 USB problem

I was trying to install windows 7 on this laptop without success until I found the Microsoft windows 7 USB 3 creator, the installation was successfull but now the big problem, USB is not detected in the windows, it needs a driver and there is no lan, wan, bluetooth, card reader, usb3 port, all that doesn't work unless I install the USB driver.

How I can install the USB driver and everything is not detected?

Acer claims the block port is usb 2.0 port but no it is usb 3.0 port.

If windows successully installed, where are the native usb 3 driver used during the installation?

    as far as i know, windows 7 doesn't have a native USB3.0 support by the way on your laptop an USB 2.0 (the one not blu) is available and this, normally works under windows 7.

     

    if you still have issues, you could try to create a slipstream version with some embedded drivers, nLite will help you do it (it's free):

    Well, I shrinked the drive disk size and made a new partition as 60GB for drivers only.

    I reinstalled windows 10 and I will fill the drivers partition then re-install windows 7.

    btw shouldn't the windows 10 get activated automtically on this machine like it was previously received? I reinstalled windows 10 and it needs a product key for activation.

    windows 10 normally reads the product key from the BIOS, i don't know why is asking it.
