Resolved Question:

I have recently bought a Dell Inspiron 17R with Windows 8. Hate 8 and would like to convert to Windows 7. Can you do this? What would be the compromises, if any?

Yes, it is possible to downgrade to windows 7, but you would have to purchase a copy of windows 7 to do it

Wes :

We would not be able to do it for you, but we could give you instructions on how to do it

Wes :

There aren't any major downsides to going to 7.
