    How to downgrade the Windows 10 Pro to Windows 10 Home (upgraded from Windows 7 Home)

    It means there is no way for Win 10 Pro downgrade to Win 10 home (upgrade from Win 7 Home) unless I reinstall the win 7 home then upgrade to win 10 home?

    If I do the clean install of that PC installed Win 10 Pro upgrade from Win 10 Home (upgraded from Win 7 Home) and skipped the inserting key steps then connect internet, will my PC activate automatically for Win 10 Home or Win 10 Pro?

    How could I downgrade to Win 7 after a clean Win 10 install.

    No,not from a clean install. Unless you've made a backup of the original install you'll have to reinstall W7 .

    Why revert back? having problems?

    When I first did my upgrade from Win 7 my sound -SB X-Fi Xtreme Music working. I took the plunge after two days to perform Win 10 clean install using USB key that had downloaded Win 10 from Window Media....

    Now I have tried all tricks and no sound on the speakers-I could hear sound on headphone attached to ear phone pin in the front of the desk top.

    I have previously made a Win 7 image using Acronis True Home Image 2012 on an external hard drive.
    Do you feel if I install my Acronis True Home Image 2012 (I do not own 2015 version) in Win 10 computer, I could boot to Acronis recovery disk and install Win 7 again? I do not want to experiment in case I make this computer a "brick"?
    Regards
