    Please help, Windows 8 installation.


    Hello everyone,

    New user here so hopefully this forum has a warm welcome. I bought a Dell Inspiron One 2330 about a week ago, shut it down two nights ago and when I woke up and turned it on it came up with a BCD error. I had not created a back up disc yet because I didn't have any DVD's at the moment. So long story shot I searched the internet to find that I could download the Windows 8 evaluation ISO file and make a bootable USB. So I tried that six times until I finally downloaded Rufus to make a UEFI bootable USB Stick. Now I refreshed the PC and it has loaded the evaluation version over my full home edition version. Is there any way to revert back to my regular full version of windows or will I have to purchase Windows again? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Tom
