Cannot install windows 7 from usb

HP Recommended
hp pavilion desktop pc 570-p0xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello! Today i tried to install Windows 7 64 BIT. But i cant install it from usb because from bios i try launch it by disabling secure boot and all this and changing boot order because automatically boots back to old operating system. Then i try to install it from desktop trough setup.exe but that doesnt work too and just shutsdown and boots backup to old operating system installed. What is the problem? please help

Personally, I would strong recommend AGAINST what you are attempting to do. If you remove or overwrite the original Win10 on your PC with Win 7, you are going to encounter serious problems as there are no HP Win7 drivers for the new hardware that comes with new machines.

 

MS supplies drivers that provide only basic functionality.  This means that some of the hardware functionality is likely NOT to work if you force a downgrade.  That includes functions like the touchpad, WiFi, switchable graphics, USB ports -- to name the functions commonly reported here.
 
That said, someone else might come along and point you to Win7 drivers for other model PCs that that will work with yours -- but if that does not happen, you will then be stuck with a PC with limited functionality as HP is not writing Win7 drivers for their new Win10 PCs.

Hello! Thanks for telling me. Just tried to dual boot W10 And W7 to see which works better. If windows 7 cannot be installed is the anyway to dualboot w8 with w10. Thanks for helping 🙂
