Windows 10: Help downgrading to Windows 7

    Help downgrading to Windows 7


    Hello everybody,
    Recently I attempted to use the Windows 10 feature of downgrading to and restoring Windows 7. However when in the process of restoring Windows 7 my computer freezes. Any help to prevent this, or to stop the process entirely so that I could use an alternate method of downgrading to Windows 7 would be very appreciated. I have tried turning it off and back on again, and when in the restoration screen there are no options available. Also CTRL+ALT+DELETE has yielded no results. Any help would be very appreciated, thanks!

    Hi have you had Windows 10 more than 30 days installed on your computer.
    If you have then unless you made an image of windows 7 before you upgraded you cannot roll back.
    If under 30 days if you have not deleted it have you tried rolling back with windows old folder.
    Also may I ask why you are trying to roll back to windows 7, perhaps we can help you if you are having trouble with windows 10.

    A couple of blanks need to be filled in, if you don't mind..............................

    1. RE : when in the process of restoring Windows 7 my computer freezes.
    Please describe the method you use to initiate the restoring of Win 7.

    2. RE : I have tried turning it off and back on again, and when in the restoration screen there are no options available.
    How did you get back to the "restoration screen" ?
    Did the screen freeze again ?
    What options you were expecting to see on the screen ?
