Uninstall Windows® 7 from HP ProBook 5310m Notebook PC
Do you want to uninstall Windows® 7 from your HP ProBook 5310m Notebook PC?
When you buy HP ProBook 5310m Notebook PC, it is factory shipped with Microsoft® Windows® 7 operating system. It is the latest operating system from Microsoft® and is loaded with many new features. But there may be some situations when you want to uninstall Windows® 7 and work on some other operating system. Also some people just want to work on Windows® XP and it is mainly because they are very familiar and comfortable with its interface. You may also choose to keep Windows® 7 and install another operating system but this process slows down the efficiency of HP ProBook 5310m Notebook PC.
Hence it is advisable to uninstall Windows® 7 before you attempt to install any other operating system. Here we will be dealing about:
- Problems faced after changing operating system
- Things to do before making changes to ProBook 5310m
- How to uninstall Windows® 7?
Problems faced after changing operating system
The HP ProBook 5310m comes with a preloaded Home Basic version of Windows® 7. The hardware equipped in the ProBook 5310m is the latest one. So the problem you may face after uninstalling Windows® 7 is that you need to install the latest set of drivers along with your new operating system as the in-built drivers of any previous operating system might not work with the hardware of ProBook 5310m. The problem doesn’t ends here. Even if you install latest drivers compatible with your ProBook 5310m hardware, it is not necessary that they will be compatible with your operating system. In such a case, driver conflicts may arise.
Things to do before making changes to ProBook 5310m
Before you uninstall Windows® 7, there are few things to do. Take a back up of your data in some external hard drive or CD/DVD. Create recovery disks of your Windows® 7 operating system in advance just in case your new operating system is unable to support all the ProBook 5310m hardware. By doing this you can always revert to Windows® 7.
How to uninstall Windows® 7?
Uninstalling an operating system is quite different from uninstalling any other program. You don’t have any uninstall tab to click on it. The only way is to install another operating system while Windows® 7 are already loaded. When you do so, the installation program of your new operating system will ask you for two options:
- Remove Windows® 7 and continue installation of your new operating system
- Install new operating system in another drive
By choosing option 1, you get rid of your previous operating system.
