Can I Install Windows 7 to HP Pavilion 15?

HP Recommended
Pavilion 15-cx0183tx (Ultra violet)
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Currently my OS is Win10. When I boot from Win7 USB, it will load awhile, then the whole screen will stuck and stopped need to shut down.

 

The main hard disk is Adata sx8200 NVMe,

second hard disk is Samsung 860 Evo 256gb.

 

Can you point me some link/hint or is it impossible to install Windows 7 to this laptop?

Hi:

 

W7 will not install or run on any Intel PC with an 8th generation core processor.

 

Even if by some miracle you got W7 to install (It might install, if you use a W7 DVD)... there are several problems...

 

1. No USB 3.1 drivers for W7

 

2. No graphics drivers for W7

 

3. No wifi drivers for W7.
