I am planning on ordering an Hp desktop for my grand dad who needs a new computer. The problem is that the desktops that are sold through hp only come with win 8 which I think would be harder for him learn as he is familiar with the xp style layout. Also I have used win 8 a little bit and I didn't like the way it is setup. Whats the best way to downgrade to win 7? I take it I just need to buy a copy of win 7 and format the drive and install win 7. if I format the drive will I have to re-install network drivers if I want to get back onto the the internet or does win 7 automatically support most integrated network adapters?
