2017-09-16 17:42:50 -0600 asked a question Windows 7 no longer in grub

I have just recently installed fedora 26 in an partition of my ssd and the windows 7 option of grub is not appearing. I have tried several stuff but it is not working! please help! I think the solution might be to use a windows 7 usb to fix the missing EFI folder, but my system does not recognize the usb! i have burned windows 7 in it, and it simply skips over it and doesn't open when i try to do it while in the bios, it loads a back screen and then goes back to the device selection menu.

my fdisk -l:
