It is possible. There are not currently official drivers. Windows 7 does include a great deal of drivers. I would give it a shot and see what happens. Be sure to make your recovery discs so you can reinstall Windows Vista if you need to.

@ygustavo,

Hi,

If You You want to use HP drivers and test new system without any problems ((like finding drivers) I suggest Win7 32bit version for Your model.

Drivers made for Vista are working under Win7 and for Your model HP provides drivers only for 32bit system.

You may download them from here.

vista drivers work for windows 7. i also use windows 7 on my hp 530. i used to have problems when i installed a custom copy of windows 7.but what i did was to switch to windows vista and made an upgrade. but the upgrade usually needs patience coz can take more than an hour depending on your PC perfomance.

 

i am telling you now all the drivers are working.

 

enjoy using windows 7 on your PC.
