    No not 2 answers, but you need both.

    Navylcdr's is the tool to make the USB bootable, my link is the actual W7 SP1 download link
    download my link to your desktop - plug in USB run Navycmdr tool then it will ask you wheres the file - thats my link.

    Edit
    Windows USB/DVD Download Tool - Microsoft Store
    My mistake same name different things , assumed the "tool" was the tool NOT the iso link

    Thanks, I got into windows 7. I didn't really reinstall, though breaking the hp recovery stopped the error message apart from an ide error. I used the installation disk to get into cmd and access the registry to enable achi. Then I got in after 3 hours of driver installs and updates. The only issue now is that changing OS takes forever from the windows boot manager though that's time for another thread.
