Downgrade windows Dell inspiron 15r 7520

Hello there,

I have a dell inspiron 15r 7520 which i originally came with windows 7 home edition. I upgraded it to windows 10 some years ago, but because of speed issues, I would like to downgrade it back to windows 7 again.

How can i do this?

I tried to download windows 7 on microsoft site, but when i enter my current windows key it won't let me download it.

Thank you for your message.



You will need a Dell OS image to reinstall Windows on your computer.



You will need to reach out to the out of warranty team & purchase a Windows 7 recovery disc. There will be a nominal charge for shipping and handling.



Please back up data before you reinstall the OS. Once you have the media, you can reinstall the OS & use the activation key that came with the computer to activate Windows 7.

1.  Not for windows 7, no.
