    If the concern is with the new tiles-interface of Windows 8, that's something that can be changed "back" to a Windows 7-like menu-interface very easily. This would take a LOT less work than reinstalling 76 PCs.
    We use an electroinic health record system that isn't compatable so we CANNOT USE IT. They are not shipping 7 machines, I believe it was a pricing issue. I do not make the PO's. So, is there a standard windows 7 64 bit driver dvd that is available to download anywhere?
