Today I tried to do a Windows 7 clean install. I didn't realize all drivers would be gone after, but I have the MSI drivers and utilities disk that came with my iBuyPower BB920, as well as the Win10 reinstall disk. My computer did not come with an internal DVD drive, but I have an external one that connects through USB. Of course, there's no driver for the USB either, so it won't recognize the DVD drive or the flash drive I have the drivers copied onto, 2.0 or 3.0. Any suggestions?
I5 6400 Skylake CPU
Windows 10 Professional
AMD MSI RX 480 4gb graphics card
16gb DDR4 Ram
120 gb ssd
Tempered glass computer case/w led lights and remote
MSI 110M VD Plus motherboard
Keyboard and mouse included

Your modern computer came with Win 10 = is optimized only for Win 10(= lack device drivers for Win 7/8.1), and is not optimized for Win 7, eg the Win 7 SP1 Install/Recovery media from M$-website has no support for USB 3.0 and NVMe(= non-SATA) SSD.
....... The USB 2.0 ports should work under Win 7 = you need to use USB 2.0 Flash-drives, and not USB 3.0 Flash-drives. You need to connect your external USB 2.0 DVD-drive to the USB 2.0 port and let Windows Update automatically fetch the driver for you. If not, you have to do to the DVD manufacturer website to get the Win 7 driver.
While online with Win 7, you should be able to manually download and install the missing USB 3.0 driver at ...
Last resort is to "roll-back" to Win 10.
