I'm sure this has been addressed here, but I couldn't figure out what search terms to use. I installed the Win8 consumer preview on a spare laptop quite a while ago and didn't read the fine print closely enough to realize that I would not be able to revert to Win 7 at the end of the trial. Win 7 was OEM so I have no installation disk. I don't see when I boot that there's a restore partition on the drive (!), so I've got nothing to restore from. I would gladly pay for the Win 8 upgrade but the laptop is to old to justify paying for a new license. Will I just be junking this laptop when the trial version expires?
