Let us have the model number of your "3 in One" please.

If you format you will lose everything on the system drive.

Any chance we can help you do use or like Windows 8? It is not a great idea to go back to an older system with less MS support years ahead of it. There are ways to make Win 8 a lot more like Win 7 if that's what you want. Everything you always had can be made to appear on the desktop and you can even get a freebie old style start menu (coming back in a few months anyway).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If you do decide to go back to Windows 7, be sure you have created the restore set of disks so you can reset back to windows 8 at some point. those disks add value to the computer. especially when disposing of it.

✔ Best Answer
If you do plan of going to Windows 7 on your machine, make sure that HP offers Windows 7 drivers for it on their website first. If available, it will be straight forward, if not, not easy if possible at all.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
