How to install window 7 over ssd with window 8 Tags: Configuration SSD Windows 8 Last response: December 4, 2012 2:26 AM in Windows 8 Share Alankevis November 26, 2012 3:31:05 AM Hello, as title said, I currently have Window 8 Pro installed on a brand new SSD. I did not like it much due to the lack of driver availability. I would love to go back to Window 7 Pro. I cannot do the run CD in Window method (Installation is cancel due to error 0x0) Tried to use Secure Erase OCZ Toolbox but it would not let me erase because it is the primary hard drive currently.
