Windows 7: Installing Windows 7 from bootable 2.0 USB by 3.0 USB port

The error means the installer is bad. Confirm the ISO and write it to stick using Universal USB Installer
with Win7 in dropdown menu.

Since USB 3.0 is the problem, have you tried an SD card?
Using the Microsoft link and perhaps borrow a friend's card, if you don't have one, it may work.
I've tried the Microsoft program on one of my SD cards, and the burn was successful.
I didn't have success with it on my desktop experimentation, but you may, with your notebook
I got no problem burning the ISO file to the SD card (SanDisk SHDC 4GB), but after I chose to boot from the SD Card, it said "SD Card Read Error. Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart."

Define 'after a few clicks "Next"'.

If you get to the part where you can select the drive to install to, it has a link at the bottom left specifying 'load driver' or some such.
Click on that, then go to the USB stick drive folder location where you copied the driver files to and try to load it.
Actually, after I click "Next", then click "Install", then it asks me to locate the drive. I know about the "Load driver", but the problem is that I replace my HDD by a SDD, so there is no use putting the USB 3 driver on the HDD, and the USB installation stick is not showing up, so "go to the USB stick drive folder location where you copied the driver files to and try to load it" is not an option.

I use the ISO from Digital River, and make the bootable usb by the official software from Microsoft website.

Then write the ISO to stick again, trying another tool. The error is almost always bad installer.

Can you try DVD?
