Having bought a Toshiba laptop with windows 8-1 installed,i soon realised that we were not going to get on,i am retired now and have only had a pc,going from XP pro to windows 7,what I would like to do is to remove completely windows 8,

Then, install a copy of windows 7 home premium,i am very happy with it,is there a way to do it?,i have got a copy of windows 7,to replace it,i would be very grateful,for any advice,thanks very much.

Also retired (semi) and moved from XP to 8.1

I use the Classic shell and found no problems as its very similar to XP

Maybe worthwhile waiting a couple of months for win 10 due soon
