Hi Every-one, I am new here and not really a computer buff. I have a new computer HP Pavillion HP-6 which is running Windows 8 and try as I might I simply do not like the new O S. I have experience of Windows 7 and I like it a lot more the Windows 8 (which is driving me up the wall). My query is this, how do I install Windows 7 as my operating system and get rid of that which is installed at the moment? A retrograde step may-be in some people's eyes but I feel that it is the only way to go. Thanking you in anticipation, very best regards from Keith in Derby.
Installing Windows 7 instead in place of Windows 8.(5 posts)
First you need to find out if your computer will run win7. You need to go to HP website and locate the drivers. If you find all the win7 drivers then you need to purchase a copy of win7. The are a couple of ways you can prepare your HDD.
One is to insert the win7 disk and let it format and repartition your drive which means you will lose your recovery partition win8 image. Don't know if you want to do that, you might want to revert bck to win8 someday.
Have you made some ecovery disks from your recovery partition disks yet?
