I recently updated my windows 7 to windows 8. But I hated it so I downgraded back to windows 7. When I get on my computer, I install onekey recovery through a USB. It opens correctly and the computer restarts, but than it just goes back to the log on screen. It doesn't even go into system recovery mode. I think the problem is either that the windows 8 drivers are still on it or I need to install the drivers from here, the lenovo website. If you want to know what it looks like, it looks like windows basic and I can't change it to the regular windows 7, its just stuck on basic. Help?

Once you upgraded your Windows 7 system to Windows 8, some lenovo pre-installed softwares will not be able to work, including the One Key Recovery - see this Windows 8 Upgrade Guide fore more info. If you have created a Windows 7 recovery disc using this guide, it'll be best if you use that disc to restore Windows 7 OS + the drivers that came with the PC.
Hope this helps

I didn't create a factory disk before hand even though I should have. I just installed all of the drivers that I was missing. I tried to use one key recovery again and it did the same thing. It just restarted my computer, nothing more, nothing less. Is there a way I could download a system image from someone with the same computer as me? (Lenovo Ideapad Z575)
