Operating System Problem want to go back to the previous windows by clean OEM install

HP 14-r008tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My laptop model is HP 14-r008tx. It was bought from Malaysia. I live in Bangadesh. It came with Windows 8.1. I had installed windows 7 once on the time of installation I have formatted the whole hard disk and partitioned it again. on the time of formation I have deleted everything(like OEM, Restore point etc). Now I am using windows 10 the machine is now very slow that no one can imagine. And there is also many problems with the machine. Now I want to go back to windows 8.1 OEM or Install windows 10 OEM or Ubuntu OEM.

Where to go? Or what to do now?

Help me wih the issue ..

Thanks in advance..

N.B: It is impossible to go to Malayasia or other country. I have to solve the problem from here in Bangladesh.

Hi,

 

As long as the existing installation of Windows 10 has activated Ok after the upgrade from a previous OS, you can just perform a clean installation as detailed in the guide on the following link.  Note: At the activation screen, select 'I don't have a Product key' - Windows 10 will activate automatically once the installation has completed.

Hi,

 

You're welcome

 

Unfortunately, if you want the oem version ( this would be for the original OS that the notebook shipped with, Windows 8.1 64bit ), then Recovery Media would need to be purchased from HP.

 

Order HP Recovery Media.
