Did you install the updates MS releases SP2 for Windows 7 - Windows 7 Help Forums
No I only have SP 1 installed on my OS, that's what the disk came with.

Fist you have to install the Ethernet driver.
Open device manager, right click on Ethernet controller - Properties - Details tab - Hardware Ids

Copy the fist line. It should be something like this PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_001A&SUBSYS_2052168C&REV_01
Search the web for the driver.
Install the attachment fist

I did all of the steps, and the mouse driver is not to be seen in the device manager. Like I said the one I use is Asus Touchpad (or Asus Smart Gesture). Apparently it's not meant for Windows 7 as it's incompatible. Is there a way to install a different touchpad from another company? Or do I just get a external mouse?

One step at a time.
Use external mouse, as the USB 3.0 drivers are now installed.
Did you found the Ethernet driver?
Give us another image of device manager.

Take a snapshot with sniping tool and place the image here as an attachment.

I see that you already have a network adapter is it a LAN device?

Yes I installed that first thing, it's Qualcomm. Here is the image of the Ethernet Controller IDS.

The Ethernet controller drive seems to be the second on the list Realtek

You should install the Windows updates. To save time fist install the SP2.
Once SP2 is installed, run WU. It will probably find the other missing drivers, even for the touch pad.

Alright, thanks for your help so far. I also tried installing a couple other drivers but when I restarted it did the 74/200 thing and then after that finished, it reverted the changes cause of failure.

Hey, another user having issues chiming in here. I noticed how extremely helpful you've been, Megahertz07, and I was wondering if you would do the same for me. Since this thread is similar to what I'm trying to do, I figured I would pass on creating a new thread and post here instead if that's acceptable. If a new thread is better let me know, and I'll make one.

Anyways, my laptop (ASUS GL502VS), came pre-installed with Windows 10 Home (Skylake chipset so also has no USB 2.0) and I'm trying to install Windows 7 Enterprise (yes, enterprise; my father can get it free because he's a professor) on a USB 3.1C external SSD. I've been reading through a bunch of threads and articles and such for a few hours now about installing Windows, and compatibility with USB 3.0, and compatibility with installing on an external drive, and etcetera etcetera but I really can't seem to understand everything properly because I can't find someone that's posted about this exact situation with the enterprise version and dual boot and external USB 3.1C.

Anyways, I have the Windows 7 Enterprise iso, a usb, my external ssd, and my determination. Any thoughts?

Thanks much,
~Smexy
