Windows 8 laptop question?
hey i have a window 8 laptop and i was wondering could i buy a window 7 disc from amazon and boot it up or do i have to downgrade windows 8 first. because ii don't really like windows 8 but had to buy it since their was no more windows 7 laptop left. so is their anyway to get window 7 on my windows 8 thanks. and if theirs something extra i need to buy to do this please tell me.

There is no downgrade support. Backup critical files and do a clean install. You would likely want the full licensed copy of Windows 7 Pro. This may be an expensive step in the wrong direction. You could remove most issues with the Modern UI for $10USD using Stardock Start8 and ModernMix. Downgrading may cause future problems with the upgrade path to future versions of the OS.

kemical: Thanks for posting this new video GPU benchmark; Awesome! I'm pretty sure I don't have anywhere near the GPU video power to really see this properly. But, I will keep in mind for testing the few Gaming systems I get in. :shocked:

I know it was a long time ago now but I missed your post for some reason... Thanks BigBearJedi.. :)
No problem, kemical. Yeah, that was weird about the delay; 2 years?!

You're welcome. Catch you later.
