i was building two different computers, one was to use window 10 and one to use windows 7(dont ask xD) but i accidentally installed windows 10 onto the windows 7 mobo. and now it is not compatible and doesn't have drivers available for it. if i wipe the hard drive to install windows 7 on it, will i still be able to use my windows 10 os disk on the windows 10 pc? or does it not have multiple uses?

Hello optamisticmoogle

 

If you have bought retail versions of both operating systems and have both license keys written done, usually in the box you were provided with, then there should be no problem.

This doesn't apply to OEM licenses that are usually bound to specific hardware, or if you got your Windows 10 version by upgrading it from some other version.

Then there should be no problem in overriding current installation of Windows 10 with Windows 7.
