    What are you going to replace Win10 with? Are there drivers available from the maker for the Operating System you will use? Many times when a new OS is on a new machine it can't be downgraded to an older version of the OS. It might work if going to Linux and one of the 250-some versions will work.

    Can we know why you want to remove Win10? As requested, what do you want to replace it with?
    Unless it's Linux, the OS you wish to replace it won't be free that I know of.

    Just start clean install of W7 and during installation you'll have option to delete all partitions and let W7 make it's own.
    BTW, you are not going to loose license for W10 if/when ever you feel like installing it again.

    If that PC is UEFI, I believe you will have to turn off secure boot in the BIOS. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...ndows-7-a.html
