IIS is not available on Windows 7 Home edition, Microsoft said the Home edition is not meant for networking; I would add that a server (IIS is a server) should only be installed on a server OS, so Windows 2008 R2.
So you must have the Professional edition or the Ultimate edition of Windows 7 installed on your computer for installing IIS.

As listed in the matrix in the article you provided, IIS Management Console is not available on windows 7 home edition. You will have to upgrade your windows edition to take avantage of advanced IIS features. If upgrading is not an option for you, you may
see if IIS express meet your requirement:
