  • so If you have installed it in the same part disk so this mean u have lost your old windows.

    instead if u installed it in defrense part disk just login  in your old windows and format the WDP

  • Back up all of your data that you need , then insert Windows 7 DVD and boot with DVD and then chose to format the partition that Windows 8 been installed and chose to install Windows 7 ( it is custom install). Then follow steps to install Windows 7 and after that restore your back up files and install your software.

  • Hi Camilo97,

    if you do not want to keep the WDP, you may install Windows7 on the same drive you installed your WDP on, else you may choose a different drive, and keep your WDP as well as your Windows7 in a dual boot. You won't loose your Windows 7, if you have lost its ISO and boot media, you can re download it and install using your original purchased keys.
