Hello @AM0L

 

Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum.

 

 

Note that dual boot is recommened with first legacy  Windows, then newer Windows.

In your case you want to perform first new, then legacy. Note, that what you want is not a standard config and you may have issues.

 

Here are instructions for the setup you want > https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wiki/windows_10-windows_install/how-to-dual-boot-windows...

 

Here are instructions for legacy Windows first, Windows 10 second > https://www.howtogeek.com/197647/how-to-dual-boot-windows-10-with-windows-7-or-8/

 

 

Hope this helps.

Please explain.  A brand-new computer should come with all the necessary device-drivers pre-installed.

Using the "reset my PC" option within Windows 10 should load all the necessary device-drivers.

Using the boot-time "System Recovery" option should load all the necessary device-drivers.

 

So, which device-drivers are "missing" or "not installed", and which devices are listed as "unknown hardware" ?

 

Second, given that your brand-new notebook computer was "designed for Windows 10", trying to install Windows 7 (vintage 2001) is likely create problems, because Windows 7 probably will not support any hardware that was "unknown" as of 2001.
