How to Uninstall Windows 10 and Downgrade to Windows 7 or 8.1

Don’t like Windows 10? As long as you’ve upgraded within the last month, you can uninstall Windows 10 and downgrade your PC back to its original Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 operating system. You can always upgrade to Windows 10 again later. Even if it’s been more than a month, you should be able to reinstall the version of Windows that came with your PC using fresh installation media and its product key.

Locating correct INF file for network driver

I'm in the midst of setting up a mass deployment of Windows 7 using the available MS tools, such as MDT 2010, Windows AIK, etc. The image will be applied to a single make/model of PC - HP Compaq 6200 SFF.

I have everything ready but need to identify/locate the actual driver file being used by these PC's for network connectivity. This is required because once the Windows PE environment is loaded it's supposed to look to the deployment share on the network for the information and files, but it can't do that if the network drivers aren't loaded duringthe Windows PE boot process.

I'm trying to identify the driver file name so that I can inject that file into the image that is already created. I was looking at a set of instructions for injecting a driver file into an image and it said to locate the INF file for your network driver.

I can't figure this one out. How do I locate the one INF file that's for my network driver?

Customizing Copy/Paste in Same Folder

A new and improved feature of Windows 7 is that when files are copied and pasted into the same folder, the copy file name is the name of the original with "- Copy" which makes it difficult to select just originals or copies.

For example: original file named "Contract-102.docx" copy is named "Contract-102 - Copy.docx

In Windows XP the word "Copy" was at the beginning of the file name. How do I get this rule changed to the Windows XP format?

Can I uninstall Windows 7?

You can't uninstall Windows 7, but you can reinstall your previous operating system if you have the original installation disc.

Windows start Error. Missing File

My laptop (obviously not the one I am using now) suddenly wouldn't start up today. the error reads:

1) Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
4) You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM.
5) Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair

I do have a windows cd-rom, but if I try to re-install windows, what will happen to all of my photos and stuff? is there a way to copy all of my data to another hard drive?
