    Any particular reason you're not using bootcamp. I'm not sure about this, but I believe that you have to load up the bootcamp drivers onto the USB in order to get the trackpad, etc. working.

    The easiest way would be to use the bootcamp assistant to create the bootable USB. It'll download the drivers and load them on after copying Windows. What issues were you having with bootcamp?
