    Windows 10 preloads - where to look for it?


    Anybody know about the path to the files Windows 10 preload saves? Is it on my C:\? I guess it is, but where? I don't want to delete them, or mess with them, when doing my weekly cleaning *Redface

    windows 10 to windows 7

    If Windows 10 came preinstalled on your computer.

    You will first need to go to the manufacturers website for your model computer and first find out if there are Windows 7 native drivers available. A lot of computers that come preloaded with Windows 10 do not have native driver support for Windows 7 by the
    manufacturer. If there are no native drivers, you will have to consider returning the machine and purchasing a machine preloaded with Windows 10 Pro with downgrade rights to Windows 7 Professional. Or look through the manufacturers catalogue for systems already
    preloaded with Windows 7, usually the business line will have these options.

    Return the computer if it came preloaded with Windows 10 and purchase one already preloaded with Windows 7, they are still available:

    Removing windows 10 and replacing with Windows 7

    Could you describe for us exactly the problems you are experiencing with Windows 10?

    You will first need to go to the manufacturers website for your model computer and first find out if there are Windows 7 native drivers available. A lot of computers that come preloaded with Windows 10 do not have native driver support for Windows 7 by the

    Return the laptop if it came preloaded with Windows 8 and purchase one already preloaded with Windows 7, they are still available:

    You won't be able to access it until July 29th and then it should unpack the files and install itself.
