HP does support Windows 7 and also provides drivers and software for your sleekbook.

 

Which method are you using to try to install Windows 7?

 

The USB installation method should work and an external DVD with a valid installation DVD should also work. 

 

You may have to delete the original partition and create a raw partition during the install for it to work.

 

 

Best regards,

Is your sleekbook a 14-b050la or tu model?

What was the error?
Was there a complete error message?

You might find it simpler to use the Windows 7 USB method that I provided a link for. It is also considerably faster.
