I have the Hp Pavilion desktop 550-153w with windows 10 preinstalled I do not like that opperating system never did. well I finely had the money and was able to find a copy of windows 7 pro with a new product key. I have tried several times to downgrade and i keep getting an error message. is there a way to work around this issue and downgrade to windows 7 or did I just waste the money on somthing that I cant do ?
BTW please start putting a way to downgrade on all the computers this blocking it sucks it makes me feel as though we have no choice in the mater anymore.
HP doesn't recommend downgrading from win 10 to win 7 because many of the components in a Win 10 computer may not be compatible with Win 10. If you want to continue, you will need to disable "Secure Boot" and maybe enable "Legacy Support" in the "BIOS Secure Boot cofiguration" on the settings page.
