I recenty bought a nextbook flexx 10 from ebay, seems to work ok with one exception, Windows 10 suxxxx!  My question, is how the heck cni get win 10 off an put my win7 on? ive gone through all the setting i have read and re-red about to ge3t it to wehre is supposed to boot off flashdrive, but when i boot, it just passes itup like its not there. I have made a UEFI bootable flashdrive, also one that isnt UEFI, even tryed install from inside windows 10 itslef, started out working great, then hit a snag an wouldnt go any further.I got a feeling im missing a step somewhere. Ive never came across a pc that i couldnt get win7 on, might of had a bit of trble doing it, but got it done hahaha.

  Any and all help or ideas is highly appreciated

 Many many thanks in advance

im doing a bit more research, seems some bios versions can be changed and some cant, my version ( which im researching ) is NX1015.1.02.005...Yes i have made sure that everything setable is set to load from USB,

 

i made the bootable flash drive with a windosw 7 Ultimate 64 bit that i opurchased God only knows how long ago, I used ImgBurn to create the ISO, then used Windows 7 USB DVD tool to create the bootable flash drive.

 Secure boot is disableled

Back from the drawing board;

                                             Stil no luck with booting from flash drive. I set my laptop up to boot from usb stick and still no luck,Qemu is telling me its no bootable and i dont understand why. Its the same iso i burned to cd and have loaded win 7 on many of my laptops with no problem. I went throuch cmd promt and cleaned and reset the flashdrive through fdisk. (attached file) here are the comands i used...also a attached file of files on usb drive. Am i missing a step? crossing my eyes wrong? tounge hangin out the wrong side of my face? ijm totally lost. Heck this laptop will boot off a breath of fresh air but it sure wont the flash drive. I get the blinking curser like its going to boot, them straight into windows it goes.

 ARG!! I think the rest of my hair will fall out before I get this accomplished.. lol
