I bought a new p/c which came with windows 8 pre-installed. Not really taken to Windows 8 and I've got a Windows 7 disc (when it came out which I have never used).
Was thinking of getting rid of Windows 8 and replacing it with Windows 7 but as my p/c uses efi (rather than bios) I just wanted to check that Windows 7 is compatable with efi first. I am guessing that the windows 8 drivers are likely to work OK with windows 7.
Well I have now deleted the windows 8 partition and am trying to install windows 7 from the installation disc but have hit a problem.
As normal the disc starts running and the graphic loading files to install windows completes as normal. The starting windows screen then appears but nothing seems to happen after that. I have left it running for 30 minutes but nothing.
Do I have to do something different with the bios being uefi (rather than bios)? Any help very much appreciated.
