Windows 7: Installing windows info

Installing windows info

I bought the install disk for Windows 7 Professional 64bit and I installed it on my custom build on an ssd. Ever since I did that my internet has been really slow with both my wired and wireless connections.

My question is if I do the free Windows 10 upgrade they keep asking me to do can I reinstall my windows 7 with the disk at anytime if I decide I want to go back to it?

Thanks in advance.

Windows 10 use the win7 license, that means that you can only (legally) use them on one computer. Yes, you can go back to Win7.
In my opinion, Win7 Pro 64 is a better OS than Win 10.
If your devices are working well, with correct drive and no software issues, installing win10 wont make your internet run faster. You have to search on other possibility's like router, antivirus, firewall, spywares or even your ISP. Run Speedtest by Ookla

Hi,
yea it's a lot better to create a system image before upgrading that way none of the roll back bugs will exist and you won't have to reupdate win-7 from scratch just for the time period you used win-10
I would how ever put the win-7 system image on a totally separate hard drive and disconnect it from the system before the upgrade.

System image the win-10 too before rolling back

You can install 10 and role back from within 10 for 30 days

I recently put this windows 7 on my new build so I don't have any important files on it. Can I just skip the imaging process for my windows 7 and if I decide I want to go back to it, can I just clean install it from the disk again? and If I do it that way will the activation key or whatever you call that still work? The key that came with it.

On Win 7, right click on My Computer - Manage - Disk Management and shrink your Win 7 partition on 80G and do a clean Win 10 install on it using the Win 7 key. You then will have Win 7 and Win 10.

If you have only installed win 7, you should have 3 partitions on the SSD:
- One 100 MB UEFI (if you installed as UEFI)
- One 120 MB MS reserved
- One big Win 7 partition.

On Win 7, right click on My Computer - Manage - Disk Management and shrink your Win 7 partition on 80G (you going to create another 80G partition, Win7 partition will be about 420G) and do a clean Win 10 install on it using the Win 7 key. You then will have Win 7 and Win 10 to choose from when you boot.
Clean install is when you boot from a media (DVD or USB flash drive) and do a new install on the SSD. It is not a Win 7 upgrade.
