Replacing windows 8 with windows 7on hp envy 700-074

Posted on Feb 07, 2014 1:59 AM, HP Forum - Notebook Operating Systems and Software | h30434.www3.hp.com

I have recently had to purchase a new computer it is a HP ENVY 700-074 it came with windows 8 installed. I for one do not like the operating system I don’t like the apps nor not having a real windows classic shell. What I need to know is will windows 7 work on this computer using the current bios and are there any drivers that I would need to keep for the system to operate properly? Also would MS 2013 word, excel and outlook work on windows 7? Or is it completely out of the question?
