If you login to Dells site and put in your tag is there no 7 drivers? if not you would have to search for a oem driver

The Dell website has the 3050 Realtek ethernet driver for Win7.

For Intel graphics, you have to use a modified driver from Intel. I believe there's a tutorial elsewhere on this forum about downloading the graphics driver from Intel and modifying the inf file so it will work on Kaby Lake processors.

For keyboard and mouse, did you add the USB3 drivers to your installation media? There's a tutorial somewhere here for that, as well, on how to download the USB3 drivers from Intel and use DISM++ to embed them in the Win7 installation media.

I only did it once so I'm not an expert, but I managed to install Win7 on a 7th-gen Optiplex 7050 a couple years ago with the help of tutorials I found on this forum.

It doesn't say windows 7 cannot install.

It says DELL do not provide a free downgrade to windows 7.
