First an answer -- most likely yes -- as HP does provide Win7 drivers for it -- see this link:  https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-probook-430-g1-notebook-pc/5379211

 

Second, Forcing Win7 onto any PC these days is a really BAD idea -- for the following reasons.

1) Vulnerability -- MS has terminated support for Win7, meaning that they are not going to be issuing any more security updates. Thus, when new malware comes out (and it will), MS is not going to update Win7 to protect it. You must be running third-party Antivirus products or, if you PC is connect to the Internet, is IS going to get infected!

2) Applications -- with the demise of Win7 support, application providers are going to stop providing updates for their applications for Win7. They will be focusing their new efforts on Win10. If you continue to run the Win7 versions of apps, you will be missing out on new features provided in the Win10 versions.
