like a person buys the Windows 8 laptop and user doesn't like the OS cuz it takes a long time to navigate to complete tasks. They can just buy the original windows 7 disk that comes with the COA key. they can format the hard drive and activate Windows with the key that came with the disk. I mean it is possible as long as you have a Windows CD and the COA Key you bought originally. if a person removes windows 8 and installs Windows 7 will they like loose features or something?
