My 5 yr old HP ENVY keyboard is acting up. It came with WIN 8. I never liked WIN 8, so I loaded WIN 7 Pro with no problems. Thinking about buying a new HP Laptop. Problem: They all now come with WIN 10. I still have the WIN 7 PRO disk. I am trying to find out if this is possible. When I Google, all of the answers assume I stepped up from 7 to 10 and now want to step back to 7 and they say I must find certain drivers that may not be available.

What I really want is to wipe clean the 10 and fresh load the 7. Why is this not possible?? Aren't the necessary drivers on the 7 installation disk?

Before I do this, I may make 10 back up disks, just in case I want to go back later to 10.
