I was attempting to go from Windows 10 Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium (the original operating system). While attempting to use HP Recovery System, it attempted to boot the recovery partition. I unfortunately was unaware that Windows 10 had wiped my recovery partition? So basically my recovery partition was changed to the "boot from" partition and because it is wiped my computer has nothing to boot. I got this computer after the point in time when HP would send recovery disks. I have a 2nd computer that runs so I was thinking about trying to get the ISO for my 1st computer (A) and hopefully create a recovery disk on my 64GB flashdrive from computer 2 (B ). However every time I attempt to do so on Computer B it tries to make recovery disks for that computer, which from my understanding would not work as they are not the same model HP laptops.
I have an HP Envy Sleekbook CTO 4t-1000 (model) Product code (A9G60AV). (I will not post my serial # or Windows product key for obvious reasons)
i5 processor (I believe 1st or 2nd gen)
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
I did attempt to get the ISO from Microsoft but because the computer is an HP and the product key is on the bottom of my laptop (still legible) they said I would need to get it from HP.
I am fairly computer literate, but this issue is a tad beyond my knowledge level. I am comfortable booting from external sources and with installing operating systems I am just struggling to resolve this one. I put this under the "Internal Hardware" forum because my brother mentioned there may be a way for me to switch partitions? If I need to repost this to Operating Systems, I apologize and will do so.
If you need more information feel free to ask questions. I greatly appreciate any help!!! Thank you in advance!!
