Testimonial: "I was afreaid that would be the case, However i did seem to find an alternative solution to the issue i was facing. i was experiencing terrible lagging after installing Win7. after some looking around (like i should have done first) i noticed that there is STILL an issue with smpnetwk.exe that causes my processor to be over worked and i just wasnt going to have that. I have no need to share my media because well lets be honest. Some of it isnt appropriate. Hence, disabled. So. Thank you for your help and i am grateful for your time good sir or madam! Good Day!"

When you first turn the laptop on is there a HP splash screen? Can you enter the BIOS (normally by tapping F2 or Del key). If so then it would seem the BIOS updated OK. If when you turn it on there is nothing the BIOS flash probably went wrong and the machine will need a new BIOS flash chip installed.
If you can access BIOS then it may be a simple problem that the new BIOS reverted to default values. The most common issue would be the boot mode of the HDD. Look through the BIOS menus and there should be an option for boot which will say AHCI/IDE/Compatibility. Try changing it to another option, save and exit BIOS and see if that helps. Try this for each option.
Alternatively tap F8 continuously when you turn the laptop on and see if the advanced boot menu appears, if it does try selecting Safe mode with networking.
Finally to test if the HDD is actually working, try downloading Hiren's BootCD and boot to it. Then run some HDD diagnostics to see if the HDD is operating correctly.
Hope this helps,

SOURCE: Can i install windows-xp on
Before install, save externally a Windows 7 backup image: Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup
Next rightclick the C and D drives, select Properties, write down the size and type in a name for each.
Boot the XP installer, at the "Where do you want to install Windows" screen determine which is C or D by position in list, size and label if given. Once you are certain which is D, click on it to install.
You may need to use the XP installer to delete the D partition, create again, then full format NTFS as the partitioning is slightly different with XP.
