Hello everyone. I recently when out and got 3 new computers all of them Samsung and they came with Windows 8 on them but I want Windows 7 on them. I just don't understand it like it did Windows 7. In Windows 7 I knew everything about it. But in 8 I've already had lots of network issues and software issues and I want to go back to Windows 7. But if I ever want to go back to Windows 8 Samsung told me that I would have to go out and buy Windows 8 if I ever want to go back too it. Is this true? Because I really don't want to buy something that I should already have. So can someone clear it up for me to make me understand if it is even worth going back to 7 if I have to buy Windows 8 again.

No need to buy Windows 8, just make your Recovery DVD's.

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.
& made the Startup Repair CD.

Did you make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?

You will need to buy Windows 7.

I never go recovery disc from Samsung. So if I make the CD I can restore it with the factory image that I made by the Samsung recovery program?

There is probably a Recovery partition on the hard drive as well. As long as you don't delete that you can use it to restore to factory state any time, the same as you would with the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks (which are DVDs, not CDs).

The Windows 8 key will be on the COA sticker of each computer.

Also, please add the model number to your System Specs, thanks.

Thanks everyone I was able to install Windows 7 but I had to delete all the partitions on the hard drive. But I was able to find my Windows 8 product key with a key finder. But now I would have to find a ISO of a Windows 8. Any Ideas?
