Downgrading Windows 10 to Windows 7 Enterprise

HP Recommended
Pav 23-Q111na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi all,

 

I am looking to find out if anyone has or any advice on downgrading the All In One PC (HP PAV 23-Q111na) from Windows 10 to Windows 7 Enterprise.  My company bought a few of these and unfortunately we did not realise there is no drivers on HP website for Windows 7 and has only been tested on Windows 10.

 

We require to put them on the domain for authentication and group / security policy reasons and Windows 7 at the moment is the defacto.

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks

Sorry, but no HP Win7 drivers means just that -- the hardware in the new HP Win10 PCs is to new to have older Win7 drivers.

 

There is no way to "downgrade" these machines to Win7 and guarantee that the hardware will still work.

Thanks, this was what I was expecting and appreciate a quick response. Was just hoping out of hope something could be done.

 

I have been looking at the support questions for this model and it looks like it might be possible for Windows 8?  What you think?

 

thanks again.

There are no HP Win8 drivers, either.  That's more likely to work than Win7, but it still has the problem of no HP drivers.

 

Sorry, but to keep full functionality on your PC, you need to retain the OS version that came presinstalled.

 

Good Luck
