There are so many drivers and apps after an OS install

That you must check with HP for what drivers in what order must be installed. On some PCs you won't see Windows 7 drivers (I didn't check your model) so you may get stuck with the factory OS.

Do a startup repair.
Did you change any hardware in the system after the initial Win7 install ?
