    Hi,

    Can anyone tell how I can downgrade (or find information) from windows 10 technical preview to windows 8.1 on a surface pro device?

    Thanks.

    My machine created a backup of Win 8.1 and when I switch on my computer I have two option - "Windows 10" or "Rollback"

    If you don't have this or you didn't create a full system image before upgrading then you're out of luck.

    I created an image of my laptop as a backup and whatnot, so I can revert easily if I so choose.

    If you don't have any backup solution in place, you'll have to reset the Surface (from recovery) and start fresh.

    If you did a "clean" install of 10TP you'll not see the "Rollback" option at startup.
    In which case, you might need to download a recovery ISO from Microsoft and get the Surface to boot from it once copied to a bootable USB (and, if my recent experiences are anything to go by, that's a chore).
