    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?

    Yes the person in this scenario is legally fine however the computer may lose some functionality if the motherboard doesn't have signed windows 7 drivers… have a look online before making any drastic changes.

    p.s. a windows 7 | windows 8 dual boot is also an option and the machine already has an 8 key by the sound of things so there is no extra real cost invoked.
