Downgrade from win 10 to win 7. No legacy boot option. Not DVD or USB

Hi,

I just bought a new Acer one 10, with 2 Gb RAM and 32 Gb Hdd. !! 32 bit. !! it came with preintalled win10.

I really need to get rid complety of Win 10 and install Win 7. I have tried RUFUS and several WIn 7 .iso, and turned off secure boot but although you can choose boot order, there is no way that the pc will recognice bootable DVD or USB and during boot it just goes straight to win10. So it seems I am stuck with Win 10 for ever...also the Bios (UEFI) setup has not any option to choose "legacy mode"...

Please help me to wipe off for good this dammned Win 10 and install win 7, any 32 bit version would do.
Thanks

It sounds like the boot order is not getting changed in the bios. Does it have a boot menu (not the bios) where you can choose what to boot from ?

If there`s no Legacy mode, you may be stuck.

I hate to ask this, but, why must you have windows 7 ? Windows 10 is not that bad at all, you just have to get used to the interface, after all it`s just another operating system.

Long Live Windows 7

Hi,
Win 10 is not bad, I have on others PC but for this particular one I need to have win7.

You are right, it keeps ignoring my chosen order. I have read that UEFI has its own configuration boot order but it seems not to be available or it his hidden somewhere. And there is no legacy boot option....
