You didn't say just what procedure you performed to go back to Win 7. Have a look here for guidance: http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/how-get-your-previous-system-back-after-you-have-upgraded-windows-10.htm?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+gizmosbest+%28Gizmo%27s+Best-ever+Freeware%29

 

Providing more info will help in getting help.


I never make the same mistake twice....I always make it 5 or 6 times just to be sure!

Check if you have deleted the $Windows.~BT and $Windows.~WS folders required by the system to perform the rollback operation.

Check if you have the windows.old folder on C: drive (C:\windows.old)

 

If not, you can't go back.

Did you carry out the upgrade using the Windows Update notification? How you installed it could be the reason.

As batman1234 posted do you see a Windows.old folder in the root of C:?  If not then you cannot revert.

Without the Windows.old folder, you won't be able to downgrade using the Windows 10 built-in feature.

Do you have a Recovery partition, disc or USB? One with a Windows image, not the Recovery Environment.
