Where are you stuck?

There are now thousands of web pages on how to install W7 so there's no lack of information on that. Where are you stuck?

do you have retail copy of W7?

If not, would need one, unless it's a major manufacturer PC (OEM) where you can order a model specific install discs from the OEM. You can also get a copy, make sure original discs, on EBay for about $50.

What version of linux mint did it come with? Latest version is Mint 19 with one of three desktop versions, MATE, or Cinnamon, or XFCE. At least it's free for download and installation and Mint 19 is really good.

Where are you stuck with Linux?

For example many use their PC browsing the web. Chrome, Firefox and other browsers seem to look and feel the same to me on Linux, Windows, and Apple OS.
