    Rollback to Win 8 with no media (Dell 2720)


    Hi all,

    Not had any luck with Dell here.

    My touchscreen stopped working when I updated to 8.1, but the Dell I bought came with no media.

    Do you know if there is some way for me to revert to the factory install of Win 8 (not 8.1) in this situation?

    Thanks kindly,

    Shawn

    Welcome to EightForums

    Have you made the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?



    information   Information

    We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.

    I would recommend you making the OEM manufacturer's Recovery DVD's or USB drive.
    or
    You can order the Microsoft official OEM Recovery disks from the OEM manufacturer's website.
