You're very welcome.

 

The only suggestion I can offer is to make sure you are booting from your W7 installation media from your notebook's USB 2 port.   Those would be located on the right side of the PC.

 

You cannot install W7 from a USB 3 port.

 

Otherwise, if your notebook has a DVD drive, try installing W7 from a DVD.

Does it matter what type of flash
USB2 or USB3?

The type of USB flash drive doesn't matter...USB3 or USB2 is fine.

 

But W7 does not have the USB 3 drivers needed to boot and install from a USB3 port unless you add them to the installation files.

 

Since your notebook has USB 2 ports, it is much easier to boot from a USB 2 port to install W7 than to do the work to add the USB 3 drivers to be able to boot from a USB 3 port for W7 to install.
