    If you're happy with the OS why do you want to go backwards?

    Someone poses a question, they get a reply of sorts that requires almost immediate reiteration or rebuttal, yet they log off and take off!}

    Indeed not a great way to build membership.

    Just that, one or two members may have been poised to help out......

    Confusing.
    I assume you mean "not happy" instead of "beyond happy".

    At the very least you'll need:
    1. A legitimate W7 install disk and Product Key
    2. KB976932 Service Pack 1
    3. Driver install files
    4. KB3020369 Prerequisite for KB3125574
    5. KB3125574 W7 SP1 Update Rollup (Windows will be updated to April 2016)


    Then follow this tutorial:

    Once you have successfully installed W7, the updates listed above and the drivers, install a program like Macrium Reflect and create at least 2 Backup System Images (on different external HDDs).
    https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorial...e-macrium.html

    Once you have created the Backup System Images, you can risk downloading the remaining updates for W7.
    I only install the Security-Only updates (and some fixes for them):

    Note:
    You'll also need to apply IE and .NET updates separately.
