    This laptop was designed for Win 10. It had 8.1 first, but they knew it was going to have 10. 8.1 and 10 are almost identical. It has devices connected in new ways.

    Acer and Microsoft are not going to make Windows 7 drivers for it so, you are going to have to Google windows 7 drivers and try them until you find ones that work, or not.

    I would put Windows 8.1 on it and install Start 8 and after a while I would forget I wasn't using Windows 7.

    Hey I managed to install windows 7 on my laptop and installed all the drivers.

    1. you need to install windows 7 x64 version from installer .exe in the iso from windows 8.

    2. download the wireless driver from this link Here scroll down to the driver and download it.

    3. download Driver Booster software.

    4. (VERY IMPORTANT) 

    do step 3 and 4 before installing windows and save on Hard Disk because windows 7 won't read your USB because no drivers installed.

     

    OK thats it.
