    You can reinstall Windows 7 with your Windows 7 Recovery DVD.

    You can reinstall Windows 8 with your Windows 8 DVD, but after updating to 8.1 you will need a Windows 8.1 DVD.

    Activate retail Windows 8.1 with Windows 8 Product key.

    Just a thought but if you want to switch back and forth between Win 8 and Win 7, why don't you set up a dual boot set up? It's very easy to do and easily controlled If you set it up installing Win 8 or 8.1. You'll be booting to Win 8 and at boot up win 8 will give you the option as to which system you boot to. Just leave the set up this way, If you select boot to win 7 first your have the old win 7 boot up option slower and less intuitive.

Just what difference is there in either version except with the upgrade you either have to have a previous version installed or the disks available. I assume you have a choice for doing a clean install with the upgrade if you desire or saving your current files etc.
