If you have Windows 10:


Search for "Settings"


[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]


Update & Security

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]


Recovery

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

Reset this PC

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]




If you do not have Windows 10


You can boot from a USB drive. You can go [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] to download the Windows 7 installation tool.

You will need to obtain an ISO of Windows 7, this is basically all of the Windows files. You will have to find this on your own accord as it is against the rules to post to such links.

Once you have both, and a suitable USB drive, you can open the program, select the drive, select the W7 ISO file and it will begin creating a bootable USB.

Once the USB is set up correctly, restart your PC and boot into the USB. (If you are unsure how to do this, go to your BIOS, usually by pressing F8, go to 'Hardware' or 'Drives' or something similar, select the boot override and select your USB.
