First, lets just say I'm not THAT computer savvy, but that hasn't stopped me from messing with my computer. Anyways, was having problems on my computer which came with Windows XP. Since I had access to a Microsoft site due to a college class I was taking, I decided to upgrade my OS and start over. This turned out to be a real challenge because I had also tried to restore my hard drive, and it put Internet Explorer 6 back on, so then I couldn't download the necessary drivers because IE6 was no longer supported, and then I had to install multiple SP for XP, just so I could download the new operating system from the Microsoft site.
Well, I chose Windows 8 because it was "the newest and greatest", right? Wrong. Hate it!
Now I want to try to go back to Windows 7. I have downloaded the Windows 7 OS from the Microsoft site and burnt it onto a disc as an .iso but I can't seem to get it to install. When I try to boot from the disc (as I did with my Windows 8 install) it says that my drive isn't ready. I tried mounting the files to my hard drive and installing that way, but then Windows 8 says that I can't install that "app".
