If you haven't installed yet, checkout what hardware you have installed so that you can choose the correct driver. Most can be found in Device Manager, but Belarc Advisor very good. As for the additional software provided by HP you'll manage fine without it, most consider it 'Bloatware'... but if you have plenty RAM and don't mind a bit of slowing down...

what i did was leave as it is. i downloaded legit .iso win 7 64 bit. after burning it to a dvd i formatted all the drive and tried to install it. so mid way through the installation process an error appeared that the files are corrupted. so what i did was install through the recovery disks i had created.
i have 6GB ram so i don't think the bloatware will be problem ...i am happy
