Bloke sues Microsoft: Give me $600m – or my copy of Windows 7 back


"Won't the laptop have a recovery partition and resetting to factory defaults put Windows 7 back on?"

Windows 10 completely twats any existing OEM recovery partition, rendering it useless - even if you access it by the OEM-defined method. To get it back you have to wipe the whole disk and restore it from its recovery media.
