Want to Remove Win 8 Completely

2013-11-04, 14:52 PM

I have the Ideapad N580 laptop that came pre-installed with Win 8 (HATE IT!) and I recently upgraded to 8.1 because it supposedly had some Win 7 features (IT'S WORSE!).  There were many problems after installing 8.1 (finally resolved).  I like the laptop, hate Win 8 and its various forms and I would like to know if my laptop will work well if I remove Win 8/8.1 altogether and install Win 7 Ultimate instead so that I never see, use or hear from any version of Windows 8 again.  Will I run into any problems if I do this?  Thanks.

Solved! See the solution

hi Janesdf,


I'm sorry to hear your concern,


Your System can fully support any Windows 7 type and version.

  Drivers for Windows 7 are available on the support page
