did you try setting the first boot device to the cd rom within the bios?

You need to disable something called "secure-boot" or similar via the BIOS.

x86 based PC's that come pre-installed with Windows 8 and have the Windows 8 sticker on them, must use the new UEFI BIOS and Secure Boot must be enabled by default (an m$ requirement). This prevents the PC from booting "not-allowed" 3rd party OS's which might be able to compromise the originally installed OS. But on such PC's you must also be able to turn this feature off (another m$ requirement).

ARM based PC's that come with Windows 8 RT also must have secure boot enabled, but on those it can't be turned off (and you wouldn't be able to install Windows 7 to an ARM device anyway, as it isn't compatible).

Once this secure-boot feature is turned off, you should be able to boot to other OS's. It is probably to be found in the "Security" section of the BIOS. It might be a good idea to use the "Chat" function of the HP site to get more help from HP if you can't find it yourself.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

you do realise that you will be voiding the warranty

That doesn't void the warranty. But of course, if you don't yet have recovery media, make sure you create them so you can restore the system to factory defaults should the need arise, before doing any changes to the system.

This is kind of quick, but you can pause where needed, and I suggest muting the sound...

Just follow the clicks. I have found better videos about this before, but couldn't right now.

While you are in the BIOS you might as well set your boot order to boot from CD/DVD first.

Aside from that, I was wondering why the Windows 7 32 bit downgrade? Unless you HAVE to to use particular software or for work I wouldn't.  Windows 8 is pretty good if you give yourself a few hours with it. On a new laptop it would go like the wind.  My 2 cents.
