Following those steps in this thread and finding a video on the specific steps on Youtube allowed me to do the transfer to Win 7 with no hassles. I had to download the network driver from hp after win 7 installed to get online for windows updates. But it worked excellently.

Hi:

 

Use the cloud recovery client software from your PC's support page.

Here is the support page for the  Prodesk 600 G3...

 

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-prodesk-600-g3-microtower-pc/15257651/drivers

 

Here is the software I referred to...I think you will need a 16 GB USB flash drive for the utility to create the W7 installation image.

 

This package provides the Cloud Recovery Client for supported models running a supported operating system. This Client Utility enables users to download the Recovery Kit from the cloud
