    Could I install Windows 7 software onto my Envy 700 HP8?


    Hi all, I am new, and I have a question about this. Could I install Windows 7 software onto my Envy 700 HP8? If so, how? Would it be a good idea to back up my W8 on a 8GB storage or a few DvDS?

    You can order the Microsoft official HP/Compaq OEM Recovery disks from the HP/Compaq OEM manufacturer's website.

    Before you update to Windows 8.1 for free, check the OEM website for updated drivers.
