How to downgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 7 without recovery discs?

2013-01-27, 15:52 PM

I have ideapad z570. I upgraded my W7 by upgrade software of MS. I realized that OKR is not working under W8. I made a recovery before the upgrading process however I cannot go back with OKR. I don't have recovery discs, just images taken by OKR but they are in my D drive. Is there any possible way to go back to W7? Factory reset is also OK.

Referring that topic could not help because I don't have recovery discs.

Anyway, I installed another w7 and okr 7.0. However I could not boot from okr. it does not start with okr boot screen. is there any possible way to boot with okr? i tried to create recovery discs with my existing image but it gives burn failure again and again. i don't want to make factory reset.
