Pre-downloaded Windows 8 Computer to Windows 7? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello. 

    I recently bought a computer that was pre-downloaded with Windows 8. I thought so long as I had a CD / Product Key for Windows 7 Ultimate, I could downgrade. However, a friend told me that with a pre-downloaded Windows 8 computer, this isn't possible. Before Windows 8 was released, this computer came with Windows 7 pre-downloaded. My meaning is, the laptop when created came with the OS of Windows 7, but they upgraded once Windows 8 was released. If it helps to know, the laptop is an ASUS G75VW. Thank you in advance for the assistance and information. 

    I have no idea which forum category this goes under. Sorry. Putting it under Learning because... I'll be learning?
