    This is an older model. From what I can tell on the Dell site, this does not have UEFI.

    If it does not have a UEFI BIOS, there is nothing to remove?

    If you want to install something other than Windows 8, just reformat the hard drive and do an install from a Windows 7 (I assume) install disc.

    How are you trying to install? Worst case, you press F12 at boot up and that should allow you to select the DVD drive, boot the install OS from that, select the option to reformat the hard drive and then install. ??

    In order to prevent an unbootable system INSTALLING A NEW OS or FORMATTING THE HARD DRIVE should be left for professionals or people who know exactly what they are doing. Just my 2 cents.

    Your post is unclear. Do you mean downgrade from W8.1 to W8 or downgrade from W8 to W7?
