    Yes you can. You will need a Windows 7 PC. Download the link from your purchase email & this time select Create Media option in installer.

    Yes, if you run on a windows 8 installed PC, you will be greeted with "This OS is not available in your country".

I just noticed, when I go to the Control Panel in Win8 Pro, it shows an item named Widows 7 File Recovery and no other back up item. That seems strange! Did I perhaps do something wrong when I installed Pro on my HP Envy h8-1414? Thank you.
