    There is no downgrade support for Windows 8.1 preview. In fact their is no support whatsoever. It is for developers who plan to test and adopt their software and drivers with the new OS. Ask your IT department if you don't know how to restore a backup to a new machine. You should test if the backup works in the first place.
