I updated Windows 8 to 8.1 for free yesterday and things don't work the same and there is no uninstall most settings are knocked up. I've been fed up with Windows 8 64bit for 6 months as a lot of sofwatre doesn't work..I have to workout how to get it boot boot up to the Windows 7 DVD so I can go back to a better OS. Windows 7 uses NTFS partition Windows 8 uses a GPT partition so it will have to be formatted. I've disabled secure boot in the BIOS but there is no Legacy/CSM boot option or boot device to read the DVD on startup.

 

Stick with Windows 7 if I were you.
