Mouse and keyboard not working when trying to install windows 7 from win10 computer

HP Recommended

Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I want to install windows 7 for funsies on my windows 10 desktop. I made the partition and have the installation media and everything. I disabled secure boot. When I booted from USB (where my installation media is) the windows 7 setup started up but I could not use my mouse. I plugged a wired mouse into the USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, but still nothing.


I even tried this utility

that I found on a similar post

but it didn't seem to change anything.

In bios disable USB xHCI and enable ECHI Hand-off.
