Hello and welcome Kush sorry you had to wait for so long.

Now I don't quite understand what it is you want to do as your description of what is happening is really not too informative. So could you please post back and in point form for example describe what happens when you power up.

Just one more thing mate we cannot advise you properly unless we know what we are working with so please update your profile with the system specs (preferable) or use this System Info - See Your System Specs

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit Build 7600 / Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3

That is a intended behaviour, a real W7 instalation does the same thing.
I don't think there is anything you can do about it...

You may have to include the mouse driver when starting the virtual machine.

For example:
Using bootable Mini Tools Partitions Wizard.
When booting start, it will include some generic drivers to detect hardware, such as mouse, in order to work,

There are also others issues.

For mouse, it is best to insert directly to USB 2 ports, instead of USB 3 ports &or Hub.

As USB 2 ports are meant for hardware that do not required &or unable to use high speed USB 3 ports.

Even some external HDD do include an additional usb 2 cable to connect to only USB 2 port for extra power.
