One should always unplug all other HD's during install to insure the boot files are correctly installed to Win7 partition or it's 100mb System Reserved partition.
I installed it ones without usb attached.
USB DISK IS OF MBR TYPE.
2 partitions related to gpt are on the windows installation drive only.

It may be boot code on the USB drive which is interfering with boot. The only way to know for sure is to move the data off temporarily to wipe the USB drive with Diskpart Clean Command then repartition in Disk Mgmt, move the data back.
