I have a Dell 7010 computer running Win10 Pro. When it was purchased new it ran Windows 7 Pro. I need to revert it to Windows 7 . I have to run software which will not run on Windows 10.  I have the original Windows 7 Pro cd's.   I would like to run the utility called DISKPART and delete all partitions and data on the C drive so I know nothing will interfere with installing Windows 7. To do this I will have to boot to some media . The computer is currently running Windows 10 Pro.  What do I need to do to create bootable media so I run DISKPART on the C drive?
Thank you for your help.
