You can only run W10 64 bit on the HP 290 model series.


Only W10 drivers were developed for the hardware your PC has, and the reason the keyboard and mouse don't work is because W7 doesn't have the required USB3/3.1 drivers to allow it to continue the installation process.


No matter, since there aren't any drivers available for the graphics and whatnot, even if you were able to get W7 to install.
