I want to down grade windows 10 to windows 7. In recovery section there is no restore for windows 7.
can i simply install windows via DISC. or another solution please help me
I have a laptop that had a 500GB disk where I had install Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 dual booting. So when I looked at disk management when Windows was booted I had 4 partitions in that order:
System Partition with 300MB
Windows 7 with 347GB
Windows 8.1 with 131GB
HP_recovery with 22GB
I used the backup and restored application from Windows 7 and created an image backup of my disk with...
Did a clean install of Win 10 Pro recently...everything running good...but tried to setup dual boot with my trusty Win 7 Pro and am having definite performance issues when booting to 7.
I think it has something to do with the attached Computer management jpg...seems the 'system' thinks Win 7 is the main/primary OS/drive...not Win 10
1st to admit I don't know what all the tags mean in...
My computer is an HP Pavilion 500-205t DT, I was running W7 Pro and when W10 became available I downloaded it to a USB. I installed W10 Pro and it functions normally and my other applications work well within W10 Pro. I like W10 however, I would like to go back to W7 Pro. I have installed OS's over the years many times without any issues. I have 3 types of media to install W7 Pro, dvd, usb...
I'm making some progress now with my new W7 install on MBR via a UEFI motherboard.
I have a question: After first deleting the original install partition with a program that has a GUI (don't remember its name) the Disk 1 partition showed as 'Logical'. After using the app to create a 'Primary' partition formatted in NTFS, it now shows that its type is Primary.
Does the presence of either...
PC started freezing up. HP Pav with Win7 Home Prem (w/o SerPk 1).Performed diagnostic from boot screen by pressing F9 key. CPU, Mem, Hdd all passed except got "BIOHD-3 error. No bootable drives detected", yet it was still booting up.:confused: Within minutes though pc would get stuck/freeze with spinning circle/busy icon. Decided to do a factory recovery. Installed from factory image on hdd...
I happen to like a clean desktop, not the general plethora of icons that install routines will pile up on you. After upgrading to Win 7 Home Premium, I seem stuck with Libraries and Homegroup as icons on the desktop. These two features are readily reached by other means than desktop icons (I have Classic Shell installed as well). How can I remove those two pesky icons? They do not appear in...
I've just finished assembling my first computer, and tried installing windows 7 ultimate x64 on a blank samsung 256gb SSD from an 8gb usb stick, but I got an error on the second step at 1% saying "Windows cannot install required files". I pressed OK and restarted, I get a message saying there's nothing to boot from. Obviously, I made sure the USB was top priority as a boot device.
Im going to build a new Skylark computer. Other than new hardware, its going to be an identical system as Im staying with Win 7 Pro 64. My last build (this box) was quite pain as Ive got so many programs, utilities, and games, on it that Ive never got everything re-installed that I had on the build before, if that makes sense.
As I usually do, Im simple going to clone/copy my two...
I am having trouble with windows 7 installation. Every time I try to install windows 7 professional, it goes to expanding windows files and stays at 0% and I tried this with 3 dvd-rs that I put windows 7 on through Microsoft dreamspark, and I keep trying to put it on my new western digital blue 750 gig hard drive
Can someone please help
My attempted upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 stopped with the message that my System Reserved Partition was too small. Sure enough, my research indicated that Windows 10 requires a larger petition. I used MiniTool to extend the partition and discovered that my System Reserved Partition, which Windows has assigned drive letter E:, was on a different drive than I thought. Attached is a snip...
I disconnected all my HDD/SSD's and clean installed W10 on a fresh SSD. I did this mainly to ensure W10 and my hardware were compatible. I am now back on W7 from my original disks and working fine. QUESTION: Will MS be satisfied when I reinstall my W10 SSD at some time in the distant future and still maintain my "free" upgrade digital entitlement.
So I got this windows 7 Pro 64 bit installation disc and installed it on a new hard drive on my ThinkPad W520. To my surprise, this is what I got:
Hey! Today I did a clean win7 install some hours ago but I had to change some settings to disable UEFI boot on the bios or something similar I set the main boot thingy to DVD-RAM instead of DVD-RAM UEFI, so as to boot from the cd and create a master boot record.
Everything went fine and I don't know if this is related to what I just mentioned but when I boot up my PC I get to the dual boot...
At present I have a clean install of Win 10 Pro 64 bit on a new SSD. I also have my original Win 7 Pro 64 bit on a second HDD. I have all my docs/pics/excel etc. files and documents on a third HDD rather than the installed OS drive(s).
Had no issues doing Brinks Clean install with 10 along with the 7 Pro installation dvd license string...working fine now. But my Win 7 when chosen to boot to...
I've had windows 7 64 on my system for the last 6 or 7 years? However long it's been out and it's been completely fine.
I moved everything over to a Samsung 840 Evo about a year ago and everything was great.
I moved everything over to a Saumsung 850 Pro about 6 months ago and my system has crashed literally about 10 times at this point. I have used Samsung's Secure Erase to reset the SSD...
Just as the title says, I removed the hard drive on my laptop which ran Vista and replaced with a SSD drive I then purchased an OEM Windows 7 Home Premium and proceeded to install. Now I'm not able to activate Windows with provided Product Key.
Here is my MGADiag:

Hi all,new to this forum.I've been browsing here and haven't quite found the solution I need,although several come close..here is what I want,I just want to know the best and easiest way to go about it.
My 120Gb SSD with Windows 7 on it is full,(some DL's just got sent to the ssd without even asking where to install grr.)
I want to keep 7 on my ssd but put everything else onto a new hdd-is...
The problem is described in this thread:
I'm just referring it to this section to give it more exposure.
Solutions for the primary problem that don't involve reinstalling Windows are also appreciated.
I am a first time PC builder. After assembling and installing Windows 7, occasionally I would have a boot error on start up, Windows wouldn't boot because of "recent hardware or software changes". The times it won't boot, my 250 gig ssd won't be appearing in bios. Other times, it would boot fine. I realised my SATA port of the SSD was 6. I changed it to port 1 which was working...
