    The answer to your question lies in your own post: drivers. It looks as if you either didn't download the correct drivers, or there weren't any available in Win 7. Generally, if it'll work on 10, it should work on 8.1

    Remember: Linux is a different OS entirely, and clearly there were drivers available in the repository for the hardware in question.

    First of all, no one has any idea what parts you are running. I assume this is a laptop since you reference a touchpad. Post the exact brand, model# and service tag#
    Next did you check the support page to see if there were drivers for win7? If win7 drivers were not listed on the support page, you are wasting your time.
