1. Windows Central Question's Avatar
    I have decided to purchase a new laptop (Lenovo G50 15.6) to replace my current one (Compaq 615), which preforms very poorly.
    However, that new laptop comes with pre-installed Windows 8.1, which I absolutely loathe, as I consider Windows 7 Ultimate to be, well, ultimate.
    I wish to know if there is an inbuilt way to downgrade pre-installed 8.1 back to 7?

    Hi, there is no way to downgrade (for free) as far as I am aware.
    Unless the laptop was purchased as downgradeable, where it would normally come with Win7 media to reinstall.
    Your only option would be to purchase a copy of Win7 (with key) to install.
