Hey so after doing research i have one question from which ill quote

"To take advantage of your Windows 8 Pro downgrade rights, you need installation media (such as DVD or USB key) for Windows 7 Professional or Windows Vista Business. You also need a valid product key for the older OS. Microsoft says it's fine to use a product key currently in use on another machine; you just need the old code to get past the product key request during installation."

Okay, "Its fine to use a product key in use". So... say i have one from windows 7 pro
And i start a home service to downgrade from 8

I use the same product key to downgrade on multiple laptops, any issue with this?

Why would you want to downgrade? Windows 8 has so many advantages.

If you want your old Windows 7 feel back then just download this program:

It will make your PC boot straight to the desktop and will give you your 'START' button back.
