Windows 10: Need To Return To Windows 7 Home
Need To Return To Windows 7 Home
I have really no good reason to hate Windows 10, but, I get frustrated trying to deal with 10. I would guess it would take time to get real involved in using the new Windows 10. I loved Windows 7, and know how it's operates and to deal with any issues. So, here I am three or so months into the use of Win 10, and cannot go back to Win 7 by what all says it can be done.
I would like to try this... I have a set (3 disc) that came with the computer I bought from HP. It's the recovery or restore disc that I can make a complete recovery of the hard drive, etc. So, does anyone know if this can be done just by doing such to get back to Windows 7 Home?
There's no crime in liking another OS. and 7 is a very good one, IMO. I hope you continue to enjoy your computer and Windows 7.
Yes, you can go back to Windows 7 with the factory computer restore disks. You might have to enter the product key that was on the label on the bottom of the laptop, but probably not. You can also clean install Windows 7 if you have generic Windows 7 discs and a product key that will work with whatever disks you get.
I would strongly recommend you create an image backup of Windows 10 before you regress to Windows 7. Then if something goes wrong or you change your mind, it's a 20 minute job to return to Windows 10. Macrium Reflect is a good choice for software and an external hard drive is the best place to store it.
There are actual 4 disc. One is a Supplemental Recovery, and the other three are System Recovery #1, #2, and #3. With these disc came a Factory reset Product Key number(s). I contacted Microsoft Support Center, and they tell me this cannot be done, as the Windows 7 C:\\Windows. old folder was deleted after a month . Windows 10 automatically removed the "old" Windows 7 installation files.
You cannot revert back to Windows 7 from within Windows 10. But you certainly can re-install Windows 7 from the restore disks, windows.old folder has nothing to do with that. You will lose everything stored on your computer if you don't back it up first.
I have installed Windows 10 on my HP Stream 7 a few times now (and reverted to 8.1 a few times too!) but when HP recently released some Windows 10-specific drivers for the Stream 7, I decided to give it another go.
However, I am not happy with...
Is there anyway I can replace W10 with W7.This small notebook I purchased came with W8 installed and I then took the free upgrade to W10 but however hard I try W10 is not for me.
Hello Windows 10 experts,
Windows 10 has been a frustrating problem and huge annoyance for me! I won't go into all of the crashes and problems. There is nothing in this operating system that I find of value! :mad:
I would rather return to...
I was having a discussion with a co-worker earlier today about how some of our employees are having issues remembering formatting rules and putting together documents. One of them mentioned that they used to use the paperclip for help when they had...
I tried 10074 and 10122 so the question is can I return to 8.1
