I have this HP Pavilion laptop that has Windows 10. However, I prefer Windows 7 (easier to use). But I took a look and I didn't see any drivers available. Does anyone have a solution to this? Any help would be great.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It may not be possible due to the hardware configuration. We can only make assumptions. Also you need to remember that Win 7 has reached it’s end of life and is no longer supported by Microsoft. That mean new viruses that exploit the OS will not be patched and make you vulnerable to possible attacks.

    Assuming the laptop is latest one, and supports windows 10 and does not support below windows version like 8/8.1/7. If it does not support then probably there is no way to install windows 7, without driver software. Without driver software the laptop will not work properly like graphics card/network card and so on. If the user manual clearly mentioned, that the laptop only supports windows 10 onwards, then, it is recommended that not to try for the same. You can also check HP website with your laptop's model/make and observe what they will suggest. You can try HP support assistant and this is here: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/hpsupportassistant/hpsupport.html?jumpid=va_r602_us/en/any/psg/pl_ot_ob_ds_pd/hpsupportassistant_cc/dt
