I really need this question answered, not because I am going to downgrade from Windows 7 right now, I just want to be prepared come late July. My Original OS was Windows Vista w/ SP1. I downloaded and installed Windows 7 on my laptop using a Upgrade installation because I have no other way of storing all my files. However, I bought my laptop and it did NOT come with an installation CD. Also, I didn't install 7 on a partition. So all in all, I have no physical form of Windows Vista and come end July I am going to be sitting here wondering how to get back onto Vista. Will Microsoft be supplying a downgrade on August 1st? Is there a place I can download the iso for Windows Vista so I can downgrade WITHOUT losing my files? I just need to have a physical form, or know how I am going to downgrade so my computer doesn't turn into a brick. Any help would be appreciated. I am very computer literate, so burning/mounting an iso is something I can do. I will be subscribing to this thread, so help me ASAP so I can rest peacefully at night. I forgot to mention, as of now, I DO have a 320GB External Hard Drive. So if I have to I will backup ALL of my files programs if I have to do a clean Windows Vista installation. Also, how would I go about backing up all my files. I have seen it saves all of the files in Zip/Rar Files. HOW would I restore from this back up? Is there a feature which would automatically unzip all the files and install them to their original position? But again, I would need a place to download a Vista installation. Any help? Bump. Any assistance?
