Welcome to the Forum.

You have a SSD that requires some drivers that aren't on the Win 7 installation disk. You have to add them to the Win 7 installation disk or show the path were they are.

Your main concern is to find a bigger SSD (128G) to replace existing 32G. You can't install win 7 or even update Win 10 with only 32G.
For what I found, the SSD is a chip soldered to the MB. Won't be easy to replace.

My suggestion is to install a Light Linux (Mint, Lubuntu etc)

How do I get the drivers for my laptop, I want to try that first and If It doesn't work, I'll try to get a bigger sized SSD. My SSD Is MBR.

Before you do anything, my suggestion is to create a disk image of your current installation. If anything goes wrong, you can restore back your customized Win 10.

When you boot from the win 7 installation disk, do you have mouse and keyboard?

As you have 4G of memory and only 32G of disk, you should try to install Win 7 32bits, not 64

Try this SATA drivers:
