    Windows 10 downgrade to Windows 7

    Hello,

    So my problem is i upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and then i got a blackscreen in Windows 10 and had to reset it. Now i want to downgrade back to Windows 7 but the option is not there. The 30Days arent over yet and the windows.old folder is still
    there. I saw a site where they explained how to downgrade from win 7 to xp using the console from the advamced boot settings. I was wondering if you could do the same with win 10 to win 7. I cant find the link but it was a answers.microsoft link. Another thing
    would be forcing the downgrade option to be available by maybe editing the registry. Any help is much, very very much appreciated!

    Cheers

  3. Win 10 to Win 7 downgrade problem

    Hi Jay,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you are facing issues booting to the desktop screen. Sorry for the inconvenience this has caused.

    1. Do you receive any error message or error code?

    2. Did the downgrade to Windows 7 complete? Was she able to boot to Windows 7 prior this issue?

    If not, I suggest you to run Startup repair from Advance boot option and check if it helps.



    It may ask you to insert the Installation DVD/USB while doing startup repair.

    If you don’t have an installation media, you have to create an installation media for that.



    You may download an ISO from the below link:

    Download Windows 10



    Once your media is ready follow the steps.


    • After you boot your computer using Windows 10 CD/ DVD or System Repair Disc, a black screen appears with gray text "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD". Press any key.

    • Select the correct time and Keyboard type.

    • Click on Repair your computer in the lower left corner.

    • Select Troubleshoot from Choose an option screen.

    • Click on Advanced options in Troubleshoot screen.

    • Click on Automatic Repair from Advanced Options screen.

    • Next, choose the operating system by clicking on its button.

    • Windows 10 will look for problems on hard drive(s) and verify that all required files are intact.
    Hope the information helps. Do reply if you need further assistance.



    Thank you.

    Installing Windows 7 in UEFI can be a bit annoying and convoluted.

    You can though if you want. UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Help Forums

    I'd stick with @Superflys suggestion and try to boot from USB and install mbr.

    I'm not 100% sure I understand what your problem is right now. If your issue is you have disabled EFI but can't boot from USB then 3 times start up your PC and hard power off. It will then give up and try to boot from USB.

    You posted a picture of PXE boot from BIOS but you don't want that. You want USB (or DVD perhaps) whatever you've got your windows installation media on. Then you boot it, press shift F10 and go into diskpart and convert your disk to mbr.
