    This laptop came with a hack version of windows 10 which was liceneced for HP laptop. Its slow right now and there has been times, that when doing field support services, the remote desktop agent wont except windows 10.

    Your plan is over-complicated :)
    Download any Windows you want from Microsoft, install OS, install drivers, buy a key, activate OS.

    There's no specific windows 7/8/etc version for panasonic laptops. All Windowses are the same. Just install and go forward.

    P.S. I recommend to you to use Windows 10. It works faster than 7 and 8 :)

    That's not exactly correct. While there is not a standalone Toughbook version of Windows, there are recovery disks for each specific model/mk.
    The official recovery disk has the Panasonic tweaked version of Windows on it.
    A CF 30 mk3 has Win7 available.

    I agree. Both OEM logo and OEM info are Panasonic tweaks :))

    The "tweaks" are only the included drivers and eventually preinstalled applications. Nothing else. Windows will download the drivers from the internet right after the install anyway. It's the same like you install a generic ISO, prepare it for normal use and then make an image after the installation. Not a big deal - it just saves some time..

    I will make this my last post in this thread. Arguing is a waste.
    Windows will update a generic install with generic, incorrect drivers. Been there Done that
    Other hidden tweaks are to the power usage and thermal settings. Tweaks that are not seen in the GUI.

    Also, something no one here is mentioning is the tweaks and crap that the "generic" HP or Dell disks install.
    Hp disks install all kinds of extra bloatware. No thanks..

    If you guys want to spend a couple hours with a generic OS install and driver install, go ahead.
    I can spend $35 for a recovery disk and have a very clean, PERFECT OS install in less than 1/2 hour.
    I have loaded Windows on probably 100 Toughbooks.
    My time is valuable to me.

    Oh no, let's proceed :) There are no more interesting open topics in this forum now :))
    Why do you think it's very clean and perfect? Maybe there are tons of spyware inside :))
