I also verified the disk at the end of the burning so I don't know what I did wrong.
What happens if you browse the disk in windows file explorer? Or command prompt? Assume drive letter is D

attrib  D:\*.*
What is listed?

If you exhausted the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start then it shows how to rescue your files and correctly burn the WIn7 ISO to DVD in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which is the last-resort step.

I would have helped you do this so you could enjoy the best possible install of WIn7 instead of the worst possible install of Win7 which is the HP factory preinstalled WIn7, with the worst load of bloatware in the industry.

However you never reported back any results for the steps I gave you so I had no idea what you were doing. I wonder why you would ask for help here and then just ignore it? The result of that is that you now have the worst possible install one could have of Win7.

If you'd like help getting a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 and are able to cooperate rather than ignore, then we will be glad to help you.

If not then at the minimum I'd follow these steps to Clean Up Factory Bloatware to regain some Win7 native performance.
