She can definitly run Windows 7. Albeit I would recommend installing
the PV drivers, otherwise it is slow.
In regards to USB, try this:
[root@phenom ~]# xm usb-list-assignable-devices
2-3 : ID 058f:6387 JetFlash Mass Storage Device
[root@phenom ~]# xm usb-add latest-hvm.xm host:058f:6387
Once you have launched the guest. And you should see your
USB device in the guest (I only tried this with Linux PVHVM guest)
Oh, make sure you have 'usb=1' defined in your config.
