    Hey guys, I have been trying to get windows 7 on my laptop for some time now (had windows 8.1 pre installed) and have had problems installing it xD
    If you can lead me through the steps on installing it that would be great o: I don't exactly own a windows 7 copy so I'm really thinking that's my problem with trying to install it, but yeah. I really wanna get windows 7 xD after a month or so of trying (random talking continues) any help would be appreciated~

    Tried, but most of them didn't work as well. I follow the steps exactly as told on most forums you'll find xD unless you know of a working one

    Do you have a CD or 8gb+ flash drive?
    If so, step 1

    Step 1: Take your CD or Flash drive with the windows 7 iso in it.
    In order to obtain this, buy a copy of windows 7 from the store.
    or...
    Go to the site for which piraters go to. Search Windows 7 and then click on Seeders to ensure you are getting the best copy.
    Download it.

    Step 2: Burn the windows 7 iso to your DVD (CD's do not have enough storage to fit this operating system.)
    If you chose flash drive, there is a free software that makes your flashdrive able to boot the windows 7 installation.

    Step 3: Once you have your bootable drive. Turn off your PC and turn it back on, while its booting up you will get an option to hit one of the F keys like F1 F2 etc. make it so your PC boots from your DVD or Flash drive.

    Step 4: Run through all the options and make sure you wipe windows 8 off your partition.

    Step 5: Start installation.

    Step 6: Your installation will be done

    congrats. Pay attention if you ever update, if you aren't on service pack 1, don't update to it etc. etc. etc. this is basic PC knowledge.
