    win 7

    Roll back to Win 7, then re install Win 10 later?


    Hi all,

    I see it is possible to go back to my previous OS Win 7 as I am having some issues with things in Win 10, so could I within the next year re-install Win 10 or is it limited to just the one download and install?

    Thanks in advance

    I've already rolled back to 7 and re-downloaded / re-installed Windows 10.

    Although if you mention the issues you have, we might be able to sort them out. I had network connection problems - but It's connecting to the Internet now.

    If you have upgraded your Windows 7 to Windows 10 using the official method, your license has been registered at the Microsoft activation servers. So you can go back to Windows 7 and install Windows 10 again on the same computer. You can upgrade again, or you can download an ISO and do a clean install.

    Hi ptbptb

    thanks for info, its good to know :-)
    Here is a link I tried to ask about my issues yesterday, but they all seemed to fail? I have seen many posts regarding the same issues. Also now my Nokia suite is not recognised?

    Hi DonCapuco,

    Thanks for the update, I will look into it as i am still unsure about Win 10?
    It seems a little slower and abit more complex to navigate than Win 7, Cortana does not work in many regions, it does not have the hibernate option in power settings (which I used alot) and everything is connected to buying MS products, though I should be grateful for the free install :-)
    Does the Win 7 key (x25 digits) stay the same for Win 10?

    Thanks again.
