I had a family member give me an HP Pavilion Entertainment laptop that seems to be in very good condition. The only problem is that it's loaded with Windows 10 & as hard as I've tried, I just can't get acclimated to it. I've searched Google for suggestions on how to get back to Windows 7, but this machine has no "go back" or "restore to Windows 7" option.
I do have a retail version of Windows 7 (Home Premium) that I purchased a few years ago. However, I'm not sure how to SAFELY remove Windows 10 and re-install Windows 7 using my own disk. I have no files on the computer, so I'm not worried about losing any information. I just don't want to end up with an unstable PC.
Secondly, I do have another PC that's loaded with the same retail Windows 7 program. Is that going to be a problem having two PC's running with the same program & activation code?
Thanks in advance for your help!
