Okay, frustrated as hell with Windows 8! Have tried everything I can think of and queried many different forums to attempt to dual-boot Windows 8 and Ubuntu and NOTHING works. So, I want to completely remove Windows 8 (not Professional) and install Windows 7 Professional. I understand if I had Win8 Pro there is a downgrade option, but don't have that. So, how the hell can I make this happen? I do have Win 7 Pro installation media.
BTW - have the following laptop - HP Pavilion g7z Laptop AMD Dual-Core A6-4400M 2.6GHz
