Wow, you hit the HP jackpot! That Install DVD is valuable, and if apps you need/want are indeed on the apps disk then you're all set. Hasta la vista, bloatware!

But I would browse for drivers if any are missing after install on the HP Support Downloads webpage for your model as they're likely to be newer. The installer is mostly driver-complete, with newer arriving quickly via optional Windows Updates.

Install updates and then programs slowly over time to gauge performance after each. Don't let any programs write themselves into msconfig>Startup as they become freeloaders on your RAM/CPU and can spy on you. I only allow AV and gadgets. https://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...-msconfig.html

Use a lightweight free AV like MS Security Essentials which works perfectly with Windows 7 Firewall. http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

When it is finished, clean and order the HD perfectly using state-of-the-art free CCleaner then Auslogics Disk and Registry defraggers monthly. CCleaner - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com
Auslogics Disk Defrag - Reviews and free Auslogics Disk Defrag downloads at Download.com
Auslogics Registry Defrag - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

Then save a Win7 Backup image externally so you never have to reinstall again, just reimage the HD or replacement using DVD or Repair CD. Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

Did you wipe the HD first using tutorial I linked? This is important to overwrite boot sector code.

Clear the CMOS in BIOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

Set SATA controller in BIOS setup to AHCI.

Remove all but 2gb of RAM to try install.

If these fail, then contact HP Tech Support to find out what type of BIOS block they have that is blocking use of the provided Install DVD.

If you know someone with an actual Windows installer DVD that is the same version as what you had, that will let you use it to do the install that will work and you can use the factory activation key listed on the COA sticker attached to the PC by the manufacturer to do the activation.

If you can't find the exact version as yours, any version will do, you can use the info in this tutorial at the link below so you can create an "all-versions" installer that can be used to install the same version you had.

Windows 7 Universal Installation Disc - Create


Though it may take a robo-call to MS to sort the activation after the install.
