Windows 7: How to check if HP running Windows 8 will run 7?

How to check if HP running Windows 8 will run 7?


I'm currently in the process of purchasing a new laptop, and I found the HP Pavilion g7-2270us, but unfortunately it comes with Windows 8. I am perfectly happy with 7 and would like to have the option of downgrading if I get the laptop, but I want to see first if I even can, because I read somewhere that HP no longer tests their laptops with 7, so there's a chance the downgrade won't work.

Is there a list of qualifications a laptop must have to run 7?

Hard to say. If the drivers for Windows 7 are available, it will work.

But why don't you ask for it with Windows 7 to start with. They have to sell you a Windows 7 version (there was a court decision to that effect). Two of my relatives have done that.
