    Installing Windows 7


    This is my last attempt before I sell or throw a brick through this crappy computer. I have a copy of windows 7 on disc. I put the disc in, I sign out, I shift+restart, I boot from disc, it goes right to the login screen and I can't even load the exe from the disc in explorer it just simply does nothing.

    I don't want to delete the partition as it will depreciate the value of the product, it was "made for windows 10" and came with windows 10. My only other inkling is install ubuntu disable the windows 10 partition and then attempt to load the windows 7 disc.

    If you are going to ask why I am sick of windows 10 simply put:

    Apps crash all the time
    System Settings Modules are instable
    Resetting the computer means nothing at all
    Explorer is instable
    Networking issues
    Program Conflicts
    Loss of functionality between applications

    Literally nothing works, it took up to 3 hours before to make a post online. Another issue is hardware like I don't even know if this computer works. I use systems for audio yet this yellow lined day 1 from manufacturer so I couldn't use it. Now I have red lining indicating hardware failure. Out of box no tweaking youtube won't even playback without audio cutouts till you disabled everything. Is just a nightmare, I don't like the screen, or the mouse and with the OS issues is just too much. I want run windows 7 and see if the hardware is stable. Maybe they just put windows 10 on this piece of garbage to make modern even though the support isn't fluid.

    Any ways thanks for your help

    Installing Windows 7 with UEFI is a bit fiddly. You could see here Can't install windows 7 on new asus laptop Solved - Windows 7 Help Forums for some tips/required steps.

    You'll need a new license for 7 incidentally - the 10 one will not work.
