    I bought a laptop with Win10 installed. The main benefit of this OS was the startup speed. 5 seconds after turning it on I was able to use it, but lately it's taking far more time than it used to.
    Because of that, I'm willing to format it and install Windows 7.

    I'd like to know if someday, after install Windows 7 non-official, I can reinstall the original version of Windows 10?
    For what I've heard Win10 doesn't have a product-key and it's related to the motherboard, but I didn't understand how it works.

    I'd be thankfull if somebody could help me.

    Win 7 won't be usable in 5 seconds, it doesn't have fast boot

    Before you can begin to put Windows 7 on that laptop, you'll need to find all the necessary Windows 7 drivers. Good Idea to get those first before you format.
    Might be better to find out why your boot time is slower on 10 and fix that. Checking what's in the start up list would be a good start

    Yes, that is a reason. I have a i5 and an SSD, and my Win7 does take 7 seconds.
    Every day I get angry, because, my god, what could in have done in all that time...

    Thank you for all the replies.

    1 - The slow boot is just an example of why I started to hate the Windows 10. Other reasons are: the high usage for system processes like System and Antimalware Service Executable; And ping fluctuation during games.

    2 - I like Windows 7, because it does not get slow over time, after installing programs and fill the HD.

    3 - I do not know why the boot became slow on Windows 10. I have 5 programs enabled with the boot (Dropbox, HP Message Service, GAS Tecnology - Core, ETD Control Center and Realtek Audio Manager. Could be because my HD is 50 % full? Sometimes, the boot freezes before the LogIn screen appears, getting a black screen ... Then I have to force shutdown (holding power button) and turning on again.



    4 - What could I do to decrease the usage of CPU, RAM and Disk by system processes and increase the boot speed?

    5 - And if I really want to change Windows 10 (Original) by Windows 7 (Pirate / Non-original), can I someday get back to my Windows 10 Original?

    If your computer has a recovery partition, running the recovery utility will put it back exactly like it come from the box ... bloatware and all. If your system has the provision, you may be able to create a set of recovery disks to do the same. Many makers offer recovery disks at a small added cost. Of course you could just make a System Image of your Windows 10 installation and keep it (or them) in a safe place for future use. At one time or another, I've successfully used all of these methods to do exactly what you're asking about.

    You may have a driver installed that is causing this, SSD may be going bad. Type sfc /scannow in Cmd Prompt, press enter on keyboard.
    Then download install and run #28 in my Signature MDL QUICK LINKS (First Here), do not post or tell me key code, Just if it's OEM or not. Windows 10 is not the reason for slow boot. :p


    Win 10 does have product key, Do you have Home or Pro installed. Your product key and alot of your installed hardware will give you a HWID (Hardware ID) if you're eligible you may come back and put Windows 10 back on.

    What make and model is your laptop.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Actually, I was not planning to reinstall Windows 10.

    I'd like to fix it or change it.

    But, thanks again.

    The problem with using Autoruns is to know what I have to disable. I did not know this program, thanks for the tip.

    The Malwarebytes I used to use. I do not think it's a malicious program that is causing the problem, but I'll check.

    I'm gonna look this unnecessary Microsoft things too.

    Thanks.

    Your best bet is to wait till Redstone 2, Creators Update (New OS Win 10) comes out in 3 or 4 weeks.
    Clean install that, do not save programs and settings as that will just save what is wrong with your computer now and transfer it to new OS. Clean Install it :D

    You can get new OS here at MDL.

    You don't have any old Windows 7 keys laying around.:confused:

    Thanks for the attention

    It appears a OEM Key and OEM Edition, so I guess that it is OEM. xD

    After I bought this notebook, I have installed some programs and games, but I do not keep many of them installed. I always uninstall right after stop using them.
    I use CCleaner constantly and I pay attention on programs enabled on boot, but it seems to have no much effect.

    The notebook came with Windows 10 Home installed.

    It's a HP AC139BR, bought one year ago.

    I was not aware of this new version of Windows 10, so I'll wait.

    In fact, I do not intend to go back to the initial state of Windows 10 (with or without programs and settings), because I'm afraid that in time it will stay as it is now.

    ccleaner could have very easily deleted something you need for faster bootup:confused:
