Come on Microsoft... Need help with my store bought ASUS desktop and Win 8 -- I hate it! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just bought an ASUS machine from Big Blue (the place with the yellow tag...)  It's a nice machine, and it was reasonable.  I immediately attempted to inset my Windows 7 Ultimate DVD and blow the thing out, and it will not let me do anything.  I adjusted boot settings to go to DVD, and it just hangs.  I'd like to get rid of Windows 8.  Any thoughts?  Would there be a reason that the new tower would not be compatible with Windows 7 Ultimate?

    Should I use a third-party software to wipe the drive first because the Win 7 DVD won't allow me to boot?  It does go to the Installing Splash Screen, then hangs...  Any help would be fantastic!
