I could really use some help. I have been out of the game for a few years...it doesn't take long lol. Busy having a couple great kids. Anyway, I have always nuked and paved all new computers(used to get a new one yearly). Hate all the crap that ships out of the box. Anyway, I need to upgrade badly and get a new laptop. All seem to be shipping with windows 10 now and I really am not interested.
I will cut to the chase. Can I install windows 7 on a brand new machine that shipped with 10? I have no idea if I can get driver support. That's the big question really for me. Anyone have recent experience with doing this? Does it basically come down to if the company offers drivers for the individual model? That's what I am thinking. If it's a brand new "model" and they only support windows 10...am I screwed?
Any and all thoughts appreciated. FYI, I have been mostly using Dell laptops for almost 20 years...have owned so many I lost count. I found a Black Friday deal but can't find info on the model...it seems new and proprietary to Best Buy. Starting to ramble so I will just say thank you in advance for anyone who can add anything to my questions.
