So if i plan to re-install windows 8, but the laptop had windows 7 on it before is there any way to get the download for windows 8.1?



Let me try to explain
  • The computer had windows 7 on it, If i re-format would it take me back to windows 7 or 8?
  • Where can i get the windows 8.1 download?
Thanks.

something else you could consider is creating a disk image of your existing installation. then you could revert back easily. also, this is the legit method of upgrading to 8.1 from windows from an existing 8.0 installation: http://tinyurl.com/92bxels

it may seem obvious to add, but make sure you do a data backup before you start trying to figure this out!
