Hello,
I got a replacement computer sent to me from having insurance on my last computer. This current one had windows 7 pre-installed and I downloaded windows 8 preview and I'm wanting to go back to windows 7. I don't have the disc for it what should i do?

You can also do a factory restore



The above link is for "How to restore a computer to a previous Windows installation after you install Windows Vista"

In this case they want to roll back from Win 8 Preview to Win 7.

you must reinstall windows 7 because windows 8 removes windows 7 and installes itself into your system.
