Windows 7: Driver Install Error "Computer doesn't meet requirements"

Driver Install Error "Computer doesn't meet requirements"

Hey guys,

My dad recently bought a HP Windows 8 laptop but can't get used to the new OS. He asked me to install Windows 7 on it for him. I'm currently trying to get the drivers sorted for it and for the Windows drivers such as Chipset and Graphics, i'm getting the error "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software" which doesn't make sense as the specs of the laptop are:

Win 7 Ultimate X64
6GB Ram
1TB HDD
Intel Core i5-4200U 1.60 GHz
Intel HD GFX

I can't get the drivers of the manufacturers website since they are all of course Windows 8 drivers.

What do i do to fix this??
Thanks

And here is the vendor id for the unknown driver which if i can remember, is an HP thing.

IF there is anything else you need to know, ask away!

They where Windows7 Drivers ... The problem is you have dual Graphics and the Manufacturer modes the Drivers .. So getting them from else where will be hit and miss .. Did you try all Versions for the Intel Driver they have two on the HP website ..

No i haven't. I'll give the older one a try as well. But i feel bad for asking this since i'm a computing student but do i really need those other missing drivers that i attached above? All my dad does is surf the net and watch YouTube videos. Apologies for the ignorance
