Downgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 7

Before you consider downgrading from Windows 8 to Windows 7, consider this alternative.–PC Pitstop.


I have a laptop with Windows 8.1 and I want to downgrade it to Windows 7 but unfortunately, to go about this seems very confusing. Can you assist me or provide me with the steps to go about doing the downgrade?

    • @Tabiro Becoola: I’ve used Win 8.1 on my roomie’s new laptop. NO THANKS! WIN7 until MicroSnot gets it’s business platform launched, if it’s anygood. Everyone seems to ignore the well-know hack-fact that a capacitance touch screen can be read from MILES away with a microwave device (I worked on ’em in the USAF 40 years ago!). Let’s see, why could a Sidewinder track and ALWAYS kill a MiG 21 with a touchscreen instrument panel??? Gee, Raytheon spent several MONTHS teaching me that…
