Installing Windows 7 on HP ENVY dv6-7295ex ?

Dear Sir,

 

I bought new HP notebook PC (HP ENVY dv6-7295ex) - Windows 8

 

The salesman told me it's possible to downgrade it to windows 7 (Cus most of my programs are not certified with windows 8-IE10) then I tried to downgrade it but I can't install windows 7 on it.

 

Is there any way to install windows 7 on this notebook.?

Please help me ASAP.

 

Thank you and best regards.

Actually, if your notebook comes with Windows 8, it is NOT recommended to downgrade to Windows 7. Take a look at this article, which describes the reasons why.

I hope this helps,
