I purchase a laptop from Dell. I asked specifically for windows 7. I got the laptop and it had windows 8 installed already. i view the windows 8 thru ten to be nothing more than a glorified case of Vista. I need to remove the windows 8 from my laptop. people have told me I have to go to Dell and get windows 7 drivers. I have a original equipment disc for windows 7 I contacted Dell and they are not ready to send me windows drivers. can you offer me some assistance I don't like or understand windows8
my email is email removed

If you have something against Windows 8 try installing the free app Classicshell. This give Windows 8 and 10 the look and feel of Windows 7.
If you really want to install Windows 7, we don't recommend it. Then you will need a Windows 7 disc. As GreenBruceLee suggested, after installing 7 go to the Device Manager, if there are any yellow flags you need drivers. Go to the Dell Drivers site Support | Dell US Here type in your service tag # or browse the products to choose your model. Choose Windows 7 as your OS and download whatever drivers you need for your model.
