Hello, and Welcome
Your wireless adapter is probably fine. There are forum threads all over the internet on Windows 10 wireless issues including being stuck in airplane mode.
Right click your wireless adapter in Device Manager. Select Properties and under the Details tab select Hardware IDs in the dropdown box. Copy and post the first line.
Some wireless adapters are having troubles when upgraded to Windows 10.

When you say it is doing the same thing, using the Windows 7 HDD you can connect after pressing the wireless button? Using Windows 7 also has it stuck in airplane mode?

That is strange as doing a clean install with Windows 7 should have eliminated anything to do with interfering with your wireless.
I have a compaq with a wireless button but it automatically connects and shows blue from red when booting up. Do you have Windows 7 set to automatically connect to your network?
Edit: Right click the wireless adapter in Device Manager. Select Properties. Under the Details tab select Hardware IDs in the dropdown box. Copy and post the first line.
I looked for your drivers but the last OS I could find for the C700 was Vista.

itunes is not currently on the Windows 7 HDD that has the clean install, correct? If you have the same issue using a clean install then I doubt itunes caused the problem. I may have been a coincidence.
Sometimes the wireless drivers from intel can get wonky and a reinstall will help or work better than what is available on the Windwos install disk. According to the specs you have either a Broadcom or intel adapter.
You can rule out a hardware problem by downloading a small linux distro like Puppy Linux and see if you can connect wirelessly. Burn the iso to a CD and boot. A wireless manager will appear if it senses an active wireless connection.
If Puppy cannot connect then the only other thing I can think of is to pull the card and attach it again. There may be a connection problem between the card and MB.
If it is a hardware issue with the card you would need to purchase a HP card as HP whitelists their wireless cards. Any other card will not work. The other option is to use a USB wireless dongle.
