Given the date of your post, I would have expected someone to respond to it before this -- but since that has not happened, I will take a shot at it ...

First off, you can't actually make changes to an ISO file; instead, you have to extract the components, make changes to those, and rebuild the ISO file. If you're not aware of that, then you don't have enough knowledge to do what you are proposing.


Second, while I could not find HP drivers for your model PC, I did find one for a similar model -- and those are only for Win10.  HP does not make older drivers for their new PCs that come with Win10. So, if you FORCE Win7 onto this PC, you will not have the drivers needed to make it work properly and you will not be able to get those from HP.


Third, and while folks will tell you that MS finds and loads all the drivers you need, in fact, it only loads basic drivers.  The advanced drivers are supplied by the OEMs, in this case HP, and there do not appear to be the drivers you need available.
