Windows 7 x64 "downgrade" - Insufficient disc space.

Hi, new user here.

Well, bought an used notebook with some car diagnostics software on, and a hardware USB-interface.
The laptop though, runs a Windows 7 x64 Enterprise, which i believe is a "copy". The machine got a OEM Windows 7 x64 Pro sticker underneath.
Did try the downgrade trick, mentioned allover this forum, but for some reason it does not work.
I had to uninstall SP1, as I didn't have a SP1 DVD ready on hand.

When running the compabilityscan, I get the following error; (roughly translated from Danish)

"There is not sufficient discspace in partition (G . There must be at least 15 MB free space."

Note: Partition G: is a partition on 100 MB created by the Windows installation. Theres ~200 gig free on my SSD, which also held the G:, when the installation is started.

Any clues what to do from here?

Thanks.

Does Windows VirtualPC "XP MODE" works if downgrade (win10) ?
Hi. Some years ago I was lucky, and got my hands on the HP Probook G 650. A enterprise laptop with a real rs-232 serial port. And it was shipped with Windows 7 Pro. It supported the so called Xp Mode 1. But how about If I buy a new laptop, these days only shipped with Windows 10 Pro ?
