If secure boot is enabled in BIOS, try disabling it and enable legacy boot.

Also in case you are using NVME SSD, then you may need to inject the corresponding driver

IS the ssd is well detected on bios ?

 

You can also check the status of the hdd using the uefi tools (F2 to run the test)

 

if the disk is well detected on bios and not detected during the installation, try below steps : 

 

win 7 64 : 

 

1- Download the Intel Rapid storage: 

 

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp73001-73500/sp73487.exe

 

2- run the file on another machine and follow the steps to extract file on : C:\swsetup\SP73487

 

3- copy the folder "Drivers" on USb Key.

 

4- connect your udb key on usb 2 port

 

5- during the installation, on the window where the hard disk must be appeared, click on load Driver, select you usb key then the "driver" folder

 

6- Follow the steps.

 

Win 7 32 bit : 

 

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp73501-74000/sp73501.exe
