SVE15123CDS - From Windows 8 to Windows 7

I want to put Windows 7 on a Sony Vaio SVE15123CDS laptop that came with Windows 8. I have a valid key for Windows 7. Can you point me in the right direction for drivers? Thanks.

  3. Hi :)

    Then you are out of luck unless you TRY it and see if the 8 or Vista drivers MAY work...

    All the best Brett :)
  4. Thanks.
  5. I put Windows 7 on the laptop successfully. I'll post how I did it shortly.
  6. Okay. First, what I did after installing Windows 7 on the Sony Vaio SVE15123CDS laptop is I downloaded the network card driver for Windows 7 and then ran Windows Update. Windows Update found all but four drivers. Next, I downloaded and installed a program called DriverEasy. I ran a scan for drivers, and it successfully downloaded and installed three of those missing drivers. It also downloaded and installed the driver for the wireless, but it wasn't the correct one. I actually went to the Sony driver download page for this laptop, and used the Windows 8 wireless driver. It actually worked. Problem solved. Goodbye Windows 8, hello Windows 7.
