    You can install windows 7 on your HCL laptop but you have to make changes in your hardware of your laptop like Memory or graphics device. Replace your old Memory (RAM) with minimum 1 Gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) and DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver. So you should have to change atleast these requirements to install windows 7 in laptop. I think this may will help you. If you have still any difficulty then you are free to ask me.
