Thanks for replying. I did all that was suggested and nothing has changed. Problem is that impactor won't detect my device and won't install driver.

Took these pics to show what i'm seeing (left to right)

1) First pic is when tab is off, I power and vol up to get that menu,
2) Second pic impactor can't detect anything.
3) Third pic is if i select Recovery Kernel, a No command show, did power and Vol up to get this recovery menu

What does the Device Manager show? For instance, when the tablet is in the recovery menu, can you see an unidentified device?

EDIT: What operating system are you running? Are you an administrator? Are you running Impactor as administrator?

Update! : I exchange my tab, now its 4.2.2 and just rooted it with vroot. Voila surprise that towelroot and impactor still not working....

now that its rooted, is there a way to install cmw/twrp? tried the supertool but no luck with impactor so can't fastboot command.
can i just put cmw or twrp in sd and flash it from the android revocery menu?

From the sound of it you are rooted but not unlocked. So, flashing Roms and things will not work until you do that.
However if I am wrong and you have unlocked the boot loader, go right ahead and flash some ROMs.

I found off another thread that our HP S7E running kitkat can be rooted with towelroot v1. It's a one-click root method. Just download the apk, install and run it, and the tablet will be rooted! Just take note to install supersu from the play store
