i go to the point where i should choose the disk where i want to install... and there are no disks...
says that there are no disks drivers.
i try to do a scan, and i can find any.
when i try to browse, of course only two disks shows up, the usb, and a partition i supose a kind of back from hp.

Yeah what more then likely happened is the OSX install either wiped the drive or formatted it in a format the Windows does not see and the 7 setup routine isn't seeing a non partitioned non formatted drive or formatted in some other format.
You need to boot the system from a USB stick that has a partitioning and formatting program on it. Delete all partition that are now on it, create a new partition and format NTFS. Then run the 7 install.

You say you can see the HP Recovery Partition.
You also say "ps: i cant use the recovery system from hp". WHY?

See- Using Setup Utility in your user manual.

it shows up on the chameleon loader of the osx to select from where you wanna boot... but it gives no boot manager error...
i also can see it on the install of windows 7, but i cant seem to find the driver to solve it.

Really that isn't helping.
He says he can't use it. WHY? Probably because the fubar install of OSX did all those options in. Same reason the 7 install can't see a partition/drive to install to.

Sorry but how many times are you going to post the same thing and expect a different result. That is called insanity.
