    Unless you have a current backup of your Windows 7 installation you're out
    of luck. You'll need to reinstall. Apparently you missed the following text
    on the download page:

    You can't uninstall the Windows Developer Preview. To reinstall your
    previous operating system, you must have restore or installation media.
