    Change from Windows 10 back to Windows 7


    I have recently purchased a new computer from Dell and Windows 10 was already installed in the machine and of course I was unable tlo restore Windows 7. My question is as I have in my possession a fully legitimate installation disk for Windows 7 would I be able to install it in place of Windows 10. Thanks is advance for any assistance.

    Yes as long as you have all the drivers for W7. You will have to do full, clean install of course. That means deleting all partitions on system disk and letting W7 make own.
    Check with Dell if it's 100% W7 compatible as it is very new machine and with very specific hardware. Keep in mind that you may be missing some great features available just for computers like that found only in W8 and W10.
