    How could I downgrade to Win 7 after a clean Win 10 install.


    Mine was with Win 7. This was done few years back throughWin7 upgrade disk.
    I have this Win 7 upgrade disk and COA for it. (Bought from Amazon)
    Can I revert back to Win 7

    No,not from a clean install. Unless you've made a backup of the original install you'll have to reinstall W7 .

    Why revert back? having problems?

    When I first did my upgrade from Win 7 my sound -SB X-Fi Xtreme Music working. I took the plunge after two days to perform Win 10 clean install using USB key that had downloaded Win 10 from Window Media....

    Now I have tried all tricks and no sound on the speakers-I could hear sound on headphone attached to ear phone pin in the front of the desk top.

    I have previously made a Win 7 image using Acronis True Home Image 2012 on an external hard drive.
    Do you feel if I install my Acronis True Home Image 2012 (I do not own 2015 version) in Win 10 computer, I could boot to Acronis recovery disk and install Win 7 again? I do not want to experiment in case I make this computer a "brick"?

How to clean install
Hello Ladies and Gents, I just had a question. As a Windows 10 Insider, when we receive the free upgrade to the RTM, how then do I do a clean install? I thought we'd need to burn the iso to a DVD to do that. Thank you.
