I have a question for the experts here, which is beyond my scope of experience.
A friend of mine just purchased a new Toshiba laptop, pre-loaded with Windows 8 Home Premium.
As a long-time user of Windows 7 - he has decided that he hates Windows 8 and would like to revert back to 7
He said that he was told he could not "downgrade" to Windows 7 from his version of Windows 8, and the only way to do so was from Windows 8 Professional, or Ultimate - and even then, he would have to go and find all the Toshiba drivers for Windows 7 - which would also be the case if he simply wiped the drive and did a fresh-install of Windows 7.
I'd like to be able to offer him some useful advice and guidance - and am turning to the experts here - especially those who regularly do re-installs of their operating systems - to give me a few answers.
Thanks in advance.
