    Sounds like a good idea… My previous experience with reverting a Windows 10 Pc to Windows 7 has been pretty poor. Was easier and faster to simply wipe it and reinstall…
    This could simplify the process…

    I agree with Fantasm. I had problems with drivers not being properly restored when reverting from 10 to 7. I found it better to clean install 7 and be done with 10. I’ve since run Steve Gibson’s “Never 10” program and hope to never have to look at 10 again.
