What if all the above options are ruled out?

there are two different scenarios in this case if all the above options are ruled out. First scenario, is that, assuming you have an old PC that was brought with Windows 7 or 8 or previous versions installed. In such cases, you can easily get the previous desired versions online. Microsoft now allows users to directly download older versions of Windows from its home site. To get back to your older version of Windows, go to microsoft’s home site, and download Windows 7 or Windows 8 ISO files. Make a copy of the file in a USB drive or burn it in a CD. Before that, dont forger to make a copy of all the files in your PC.

Now, find your product key. This can be found on the bottom of your laptops or Processor units. Some even print the key on the power brick. This is applicable only for Windows 7 and older versions. However, Windows 8 and the rest of the generations have an inbuilt option to search for the product key all by itself and so windows 8 owners need not take a strain in finding your Product key. In other words, Windows 8 simply doesn’t ask for any product key for installation.

Now, just insert the burnt CD and follow the procedures as instructed or visit here for a step by step detailed process of installing a new version of Windows OS

The second scenario as discussed earlier is that if you have bought your PC with a pre installed Windows 10. If this is the case, then you will have to buy Windows 7 or 8 legitimately, install it from the scratch, by entering the product key that was given during the purchase.
