Hello everyone.

I tried to install Windows 8 a week ago, just to simply try it out, and I was trying to install it as a dual boot, but instead what happened was Windows 7 got replaced by Windows 8, and then Windows 8 crashed, HARDCORE!! Now Windows isn't working.

I don't have a Windows 7 disc, but I DO have a backup file from when I installed Windows 8 on my hard drive.

I tried to run the backup file with diskpart command, and I put the location of the VHD, but the prompt is telling me that there is an error which reads "access denied"

I've already tried using the Windows.old folder to revert back to Windows 7, but it didn't work.

No one has any sort of answer to what the problem might be...?
