This might be a foolish question to ask but I was reading all the rants in the windows10 section.It says a lot of people are still buying windows7 on new computers.Here is the foolish part:Would it be the new UEFI or the traditional BIOS,thank-you.

I doubt you will find a motherboard which does not have the option for UEFI or BIOS.  This had been in development since 2005.  I don't know of a motherboard which doesn't include the option for the legacy version of BIOS, so you will not locked into using the UEFI.  This may even be set as the default for the motherboard.

It can be done, but it is involved.

 

I'm about done here for the day, try Googling uninstall windows 8.1 and install windows 7.
