Windows 7: Can I go back to Win7 after the first month of Win10

Thank you so much ThrashZone. I was able to download the file & have the ISO file burned to disc. I only have one more question. Can I use that disc to install Win 7 with Win 10 on or must I format the hard drive first?

Hi,
Yep you have to back up what ever personal files and format the drive
You would also have to redownload or load any programs and games again too

The iso's are not in place upgrades like 10 was
During the install you can format the drive booting to cd or flash media with the iso
Clean Install Windows 7

You might double check to see if this is possible but I believe you stated it's past 30 days

You always format your install partition.

We just finished installing Windows 7 on his computer. The only problem is it tells us his product key is invalid for activation. Now what?

If you're entering the key that is located on the COA sticker, there shouldn't be any issues activating. Have you checked every letter & number thoroughly when entering? That's usually the main culprit when it says it's invalid. Has the COA sticker faded at all and is difficult to read?

My Grandson says you guys are the bomb! I am guessing that means you are great...lol. He must have typed the key in wrong because I tried it just now & it worked.

Many Thanks for all the help,
