Use the F10 key or tap the recovery button key in HP to install windows 7.

Dont use the dvd

The recovery button key in HP should be F10 or F11 ...you need to tap it when u see the bios screen.

I'd install windows 7 (it comes with a lot of drivers) and more available via windows update once this is done then just look for the drivers you need

Thats the thing its asking for the device drives before installing. Thats why i didnt know which one i needed it

so it needs the hard drive manager intel matrix storage manager.. are you using raid right now? can you go into the bios and set the drives to ide compatible mode?  Do you have the hard drives setup as a RAID system? Intel Matrix Drivers F6 install
