Want help to go back to seven from ten

Hi,

Accidentally did a clean boot and cleared everything in my windows 7 backup partition.

How do I retrieve this off of a hard drive to start again.

Thanks so much.

Hi Michael.

If it is within the 31 days, you can follow this method. Windows 10 - Go Back to Previous Windows

Otherwise you need o perform a clean install of windows 7.

Hi Arc

Thanks for your response. I am unable to do a clean install as I have no disc. My computer is a HP Pavilion dv7. Where do I get a disc with HP win 7.

Thanks

Michael

If your windows 7 license is a retail one, you can download the iso from Microsoft. https://www.microsoft.com/en-in/soft...nload/windows7

If your windows license is OEM, then it will be problematic, at least to some extent. Let me try something.
