    How to remove Windows 8 Developer Release?

    This is just a question in preparation to installing the developer release of Windows 8.

    What is the correct way after installing Windows 8 Developer Release, to remove it, and for example install Windows 8 Beta if it is available?

    Will the boot menu also be removed, in other words, what is the correct method to get back to the computer's previous state?

    Thanks a lot in advance,

    Best regards,
