You can Install Classic Shell for Windows 8

http://www.classicshell.net/

 

First install the new Bios

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-125113-1&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en...

 

Install the Driver (not the BIOS) from this page

Thank you for the reply! SO, he needs to install the BIOS first. Install Windows 7, then use that long list of drivers from that post on that page to make it work?

don't forget the Windows 8 Recovery

 

For Windows 7 Install deactivate Secure boot and activate Legacy boot

Hi:

 

You should be able to use all of the W7 x64 drivers and software from the HP Probook 450 G1, which appears to have the same hardware as yours.

 

DO NOT USE ANY BIOS OR FIRMWARE DOWNLOADS FROM THIS LINK

Aw, thank you so much for your help.. this is perfect! Just one quick question. When he tries to install Windows 7, after its all completed. It gets to the "Finishing Installation." part then comes up with the message "Windows Cannot be Installed on this Hardware". He read online that that error is 95% of the time caused because the HDD drivers are not installed so he needs to install them first through the setup to get it to work?

You're very welcome.

 

You need to do this, and you should be OK...

 

Download the drivers from this link below (first or second file listed -- 32 or 64 bit as applicable).

 

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=2101&DwnldID=23060&keyword=Intel+Rapi...

 

Extract the files onto a usb flash drive.

 

With the flash drive and W7 installation media plugged into the machine, boot from the W7 installation media.

 

After you select the install now option, select the Drive Options - Advanced menu, then select the Load Driver option.

 

You should now see the storage driver files listed.

 

If you check the box, it will only include the compatible driver.

 

Follow the prompts and hopefully W7 should install.

I didnt install the ethernet or wifi drivers because i dont know which one to choose.. ill post there hardware ids so it maybe could narrow down the search. also. the graphics driver provided didnt work. i used the intel one, but im trying the other one that they have listed.
