As long as the correct drivers for USB 3.0 are installed, it will work fine in Windows 7

While installing Windows 7 when Windows is asking for driver, just click Cancel. You will be brought back to the welcome screen. At the welcome screen, remove your USB drive, insert it back to different USB port. Click ‘Install now again’. The installation process will be like usual.

Hope it helps!!
