Hi carbonterry,

You've made backups, right?

All is not lost if you have backed up your data. Simply re-install Windows 10 and a new MBR will be created. You can then use your backups to restore your files.

Of course, I don't need to mention that you should immediately make another backup after everything is in place.

Download the ISO from Microsoft. Either burn it to a DVD or use Rufus to create a bootable USB drive.

If prompted during installation, then enter you Windows 7 product key.

Of course, you will need access to a working machine to set this up,

If W10 is already installed on a drive then remove all boot devices and try hitting the F8 key at mobo post to bring up a boot menu. If the boot menu shows then chose your drive to boot. I say F8 because that is what my machines uses, yours may be different.

Enter bios and make sure CD ROM is first in boot order and your boot drive is second. You may also try F10 for a boot menu.

How did you burn the ISO to the DVD?
