Bought new windows 8 laptop but really would prefer windows 7. IF I bought full windows 7 and tried to install, would pc 'see' win 7 as an 'update'? Really don't like windows 8 much at all but could only buy win8. Can someone explain to me how I could do this, if I can at all? Thanks
When you say Windows 8, have you updated to windows 8.1?
I bought a new small laptop for a young relative which only had w8. It took me 2 1/2 days to fully update it to W8.1 and delete the "old.windows" folder, add antivirus etc, but in the end, although my own PC's are Windows 7 only, even I was able to handle the Windows 8.1 after all updates.
I agree also with *Fruit Bat /\0/* above.
I suppose you could totally format the PC and install w7 but I would suggest persisting with FB's ideas
