According to what I could find, an HP 20-2110nr is a Chromebook -- and that poses special problems for installing Windows:  https://www.howtogeek.com/278953/how-to-install-windows-on-a-chromebook/

I'm sorry model is desktop HP 20-2101nr not 2110nr

This is no chromebok, this is desktop with preinstalled windows 8, but windows was upgraded to win 10. Win10 - pease of sheet. I want install win 7, but i not have results. Win 8 installing perfectly.

OK, so I did the search again -- and this time, the HP page shown is this one:  https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-20-All-in-One-Desktop-PC-series/6879099/model/72...

This shows HP has drivers for this PC for Windows 7, 8.1, and 10.

While that means that it IS likely to work in Win7, since there are HP drivers, the problem is your license is OEM, and that has no "downgrade rights" to Win7.  If you force an install of Win7, since your OEM product key is for Win8, it will not activate.

You would then have to purchase a license on your own to get Win7 activated.
