Hi:

 

You should be able to install W7 with a modified USB flash drive using the gigbyte tool at the link below. 

 

That will allow the keyboard and mouse to work.

Before you even do that, you need to go into the BIOS, enable legacy mode and disable secure boot.

 

W7 is not compatible with secure boot.

 

See this link for the settings to change.

Since HP only supports that model for W10, you will need to find all of the drivers from each of the hardware component manufacturer's websites.

 

You are also making it harder to find W7 drivers by installing a 32 bit operating system.
