I recently bought this computer with the basic configuration for a work project involving LabView. The configuration we needed did not work on this computer for some reason (although it worked fine on other computers with Windows 10) so we decided to downgrade to Windows 7. I borrowed a copy of Windows 7 to install, but need a product key to activate it. It was my understanding that by purchasing this PC, I am entitled to downgrade to Windows 7 if needed.
I am also having trouble getting drivers to install properly. The copy of Win7 that I downgraded to was Windows 7 Professional SP1, but all of the drivers that I have gotten from the Software/drivers section of the HP website did not work properly. Currently the Ethernet Controller and USB 3.0 ports are non-functional.
If anyone has done this before with this computer or if there is an HP technician that can help me it would be greatly appreciated
