HP doesn't recommend the installation of Windows 7 nor will it support the installation of Windows 7 on the HP Pavilion 14-b104au Sleekbook Computer. HP will not provide drivers and Windows 7 drivers may not be available for the hardware in the computer. Additionally, Windows 7 may not support some of the hardware or software designed for the computer.
You may wish to try "Start8" or other programs desgned to make Windows 8 look and feel more like Windows 7.
However, if you are absolutely bent on putting Windows 7 on your computer, I can provide a complex lengthy set of instructions to do so and point you to most drivers. Please post a list or photo of all the device in the Windows "Device Manager" for our review. Before embarking on this journey, please create your personal set of HP Recovery Discs.
