    I wanted the bloatware toshiba shipped with my laptop gone, so making recovery disks would be futile. I really wanted windows 7 without ever having to touch windows 8 again but that option is complicated it seems.

    actually, I bought the pc and the first thing I did was find the reset thing and did it. I'm used to windows 7 and know that better than i know my body. But windows 8 if I cant reformet my hard drive and install 7 will be a big learning curve.
