Downgrade Windows 7 Professional to Windows 7 Home

2020-01-03, 2:43 AM

The hard drive on my Lenovo crashed and I had to install a new one.  I could not find where to download Windows 7 Home so I borrowed a friends Windows 7 Professional disk.  I installed it.  I put the serial number from my Windows 7 in and of course it is saying the serial number I'm using is not valid for the Professional version.  So I want to downgrade my Windows 7 Professional to Windows 7 Home.  But I can't find anywhere instructions on how to do this.  

 

Where on the Lenovo website can I download Windows 7 Home??  

 

Is there a way to downgrade the Windows 7 Professional to Windows 7 Home?

 

Thank you.

You may want to reconsider your decision. Windows 7 will be discontinued (end of support) this month.

There is no downgrade procedure.  You need to delete and reinstall the home edition
