Bought Novatech desktop last year with Windows 7 home edition pre-Installed. If I had Issues before, A-Simple f8 during start-up brought me to the whole factory cleansing menu.
Upgraded to Win8 2/3 weeks ago, never took note that they've removed "F8" Function entirely, you might add "Use to discs that came when you purchased your D.T" Apparently they can't ship you these discs due to Win7 being pre-Installed, so they made-a big deal when you start up your computer for the first time to make-a back-up copy, which yeah silly me never did.
Doesn't Win8 have [Remove everything & re-Install option available In the Gen tab] ? Yeah It does, but when double clicking & going through the process, It says some files are missing, Insert disc, but /ehem I installed via Windows website, so I don't have-a physical copy of these discs, Just the product key.
Seemed like-a great Idea at the time but I Installed Win8 again (Already using It) I hoped It would put me onto that Installation & I can disk/frag and remove Windows.old but when going past the 100% and the restart, It gave-me a error message saying Windows could not update so we've put back your computer way back In time when It worked, I guess It attempted to put me on Win7 but as that was In .old department I cleared It out ages ago.
Appearance wise nothing changed, well It tried to resurrect the start bar (bottom left) but just looked like-a gray toolbar, I could still use Win8 functionality.
Downloaded some burn software because light bulb popped up and I assumed that I could just Install Win7 so I got the appropriate D/L link and copied/w.e to DVD+R disc (lucky I had-a few)
Popped disc into disc tray, did the whole [Installing thing] selected keyboard layout and then It asked something about drivers, put In "Drivers" disc or something along those lines, I've got 3 discs at my disposal
- Cyberlink BD Solution (Playback + Burning suite) - Intel 6-Series Utility DVD - Nvidia (Sparkle VGA Card/Driver & Utilities Installation CD )
I'm guessing Its the 3rd option right ? : ) If It Is, I could skip the factory reset question and just jump Into Win7 install & climb up the ladder of annoyance >.< Would of posted this on V.T Tech forums, but can't make threads yet : /
Thanks In-advance ^.^
