No network connectivity

Hi everyone, I have tried several times to load PureOS onto a HP Elitebook 840. I have got so far until it asks me for the wifi firmware, iwlwifi-7260-17.ucode I have loaded this onto a USB drive and the OS doesn’t find it. I have gone through setup and got through to the reboot and into the OS but I cannot move the file into the firmware folder it tells me I do not have permission.
Coupled with this I cannot get my wired connection working either.
Please help

PureOS won’t work on your hardware, it does not contain any non-free/proprietary binary drivers/firmware. You can try Debian with non-free repo enabled or some other distro.
