What do you mean "can't install drivers"? Are you not able to boot into windows at all or will they not install once you are in windows? If your device has USB 2.0 ports AND USB 3.0 ports, on many systems the 3.0 ports won't work until drivers are loaded but the 2.0 ports should have native level support. Try all the USB ports. You should also have native keyboard and mouse support before windows loads into memory so you should be able to enter Safe Mode with minimal native support of those as well in order to get drivers installed.

CD and DVD drives don't require any other drivers than what windows automatically supports since probably Windows 95. If your DVD drive isn't recognized, you have other issues than drivers.

Went into safe mode and nothing. None of the usb ports work. Period. I don't have a dvd bay so i can't insert a disk. Windows is working but everything else? Nope.

Whew after a few days of hastling with the dang thing I gave up/in and went out to buy windows 8 and that seemed to fix all of my problems, upgraded today to windows 10 and it works just as good. Thank you very much for your help though!
