Up to you.
As you have gone this far, you should make an image of 8 and store the image on an external drive. It is better to use a free 3rd party tool.
I use Aomei Backupper mostly, I also have paragon, which is very good, but macrium and others will also be fine. You will be able to restore that image any time in future.
I think Superfly may be right about the secure boot thing. You probably can install 7 ( you will need a license to activate it ) . Worth a go. You will have the image of 8, anyway.
If you are using aomei, select system backup, the others have something similar also

Sorry, my ADSL went AWOL - had to hotspot my phone ...
No, stick with what we have.. we can try a dual boot with Windows 7 later.
Better to have an image after you have done all the updates. Then whatever os you are using, make a new up to date image every now and then. Any major problems, the image goes back on in a few minutes.
I think just about everybody here makes an image at least once a month.
Ok guys, thank you, now we're moving on...
Windows 8, no Wireless internet connection.

Got any advise on what to do?
