You said "I want to re-install W7". Did it came with Win 7?
Why don't you do a Factory Recover. It will clean and format your disk and install Win 7 as it was new.

Just asked him and he bought it revamped off of E Bay, and didnt come with a disc.

I have a spare product key and happy to use that off of a family pack got 3 used 2.

But will give this thought too It was W7 when he got it.

Thanks.

If this is originally a Windows 7 PC, then there is no reason you can`t reinstall Windows 7.

Your Bios has nothing to do with it not allowing you to reinstall Windows 7 and Windows 10 has nothing to do with it.

Go into the Bios and set it to defaults, usually F5, then save, and exit the Bios, usually F10

You are simply doing something wrong, just follow the steps from the tutorial posted in the 1st reply.

Its strange, on a given night I'll have a couple shows set to do a series record (new episodes only) yet when I look in the guide it is not going to record (no red ball). The listing is correct. I could work around this by recording all episodes but that's ridiculous. What's even more amazing is...
