Hi:

 

Please read this general W7 upgrade guide and also use the Vista drivers for any device you need from your notebook's support and driver page second link below.

 

You should be able to run W7 on your notebook since it can run Vista.

Hi:

 

Please read my post (and Eric's post) above. 

 

HP does not support your notebook with Windows 7 drivers, but you can get it to work using drivers by running windows update and by using the Vista drivers.

Here is what I would do.

 

First take an inventory in you device manager and write down the names/model # of the hardware (graphics adapter, wired/wireless network adapter, etc).

 

Install W7. Then if you can connect to the internet, launch the windows update program. Let it install the any drivers it may have.

 

Then for any drivers that are still needed, install the Vista drivers for the hardware that needs drivers.

 

If you can't connect to the internet install the vista driver for the network adapter, then run the windows update program.
