    I have solved my problem.
    I confirm that bios in CQ57 is same as in CQ43.
    File names is: 03672.bin 03674.bin 03676.bin
    I have tried other USB port and USB Flash drive and it works!

    Tito, by AIDA64 i see that SLIC in bios is 2.0 version.
    How about 2.1 for Windows 7?
    Is it possible?

    Update to the latest bios, then try to change the OS SKU to Windows 7 by the dmi tools.

    My friend has an old Compaq CQ42 originally came with DOS. After unlocking slic, it was 2.0. But after the latest bios upgrade, it became 2.1.

    I don't have it anymore, you should search Hewlett-PackardĀ® Notebook System Recovery KIT DISK's
    Can't put links but you can find it on rutracker org

    As I remember, you need just unpack archive to USB flash, connect it and turn on Notebook. You will see mouse button and english instruction on monitor.
