    Unable to Install Windows 7 ISO


    I have just found out that I could install Windows 7 for free as long as I had a product key for my Windows 10 computer, in which I had to search for and find a special way to get it through the registry since it wasn't in the box. I went to this website (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows7) to try to get an ISO for Windows 7 since I would much prefer it over Windows 10, in which has caused me many issues, most notably with svchost.exe (netsvcs) taking up all of my network. I had to use a 3rd party program to take ownership of the System32 files and take out qmgr.dll and wuaueng.dll so it would finally stop. After a recent windows update (which was forced on me to do), my computer has been stuttering, my wifi has constantly been going out randomly (Fun fact it just randomly went out when I was writing this) even though every single device that is connected remains connected. Windows 10 is full of too many issues, and now with this new wifi problem it makes it a lot harder to get my assignments done. I went to go to the website and it told me "Error - We encountered a problem with the validation request". I just want Windows 7 so my computer can properly work, and windows 10 has been agitating me for years. I have the product key, I have the S/N, I have the box, I just want to finally be free from Windows 10.

    Unable to install any OS

    Hi guys, I'm unable to install any OS. I tried ubuntu and got input/output error, tried installing window 7 error 0x80000010.

    Downloaded iso's of both again and again still same result. Got a new SSD still the same, tried a different usb still the same.

    I'm fed up, have been trying since the past 1 month still am unable to install.
    I've listed my specs in my profile.

    PS Have even tried/changed my ram.
    Where the pug is the problem ?

    I have been using live usb to work on computer for now but I need a permanent OS.

    Looking for a Dell Windows 7 64x install .iso

    You don't need a special ISO, you can use any Windows 7 disc to install using the key on the sticker on the computer.
