I checked and your computer model comes with Windows 10 Home preinstalled.
This model is designed with Windows 10 in mind and officially only supports Windows 10.
There are no Windows 7 drivers available and certain function will may not work well with WIndows 7.
If you need to run Windows 7 inside, you can do so withing a virtual computer (VM).
If this is new computer for you and you must use Windows 7, you can consider returning it back to the seller and purchase another HP model that can run Windows 7 and has Windows 7 support.
Hope this helps.
