Wanted to give an update...

I have successfully installed 64 bit Windows 7 Ultimate on the HP Pavilion TouchSmart 15-b109wm Machine and have EVERYTHING running as it should...even the USB 3.0 ports. Most of the drivers were even windows 8 drivers as well. I have yet to test the USB 3.0 ports with a 3.0 compatible device, but i did test it with a 2.0 device (something i had handy, since my 3.0 external is currently being used ATM).

The touch screen works, it has Aero effects enabled, which was the most complicated of the finds...just took a lil longer than the rest of the hardware to find the right driver for the graphics.

Edit: USB 3.0 ports work with a 3.0 compatible device just as it should.

additional update:

it seems that the display driver was the only driver not available directly from HP (at least one that would work) or AMD, i had to use google to find it, and it wasnt on either of their websites...it was on some third party site...can't remember the name though.
But the Model of graphics card that this 15-b109wm PC has is the AMD Radeon HD 7500G Discrete-Class and the driver name that you need is: amd_13-9_mobility_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql, which i found through searching google with the exact graphics card name.

Hopefully this thread can help someone out in the future as well, and im pretty stoked that i got this machine up and running with everything working!!!
