gET RID OF wINDOWS 8? Answered
Sorry for the damn caps-lock!
My sister bought a laptop- after many years of my urgings and advise...(Compaq CQ58).
Nice machine, but the damn thing is loaded with windows 8. (no, not -pro!)
Normally, I would format the drive, en subsequently install pirated Windows 7!
But in this environment, nothing works, and nothing is what it seems!
How to format the W8 Drive? I want to get rid of the W8 installation, wipe the drive clean, and install W7!
Windows 8 has, for me, in 2 occasions, proven to be a burden, incompatible with performing any real work,. Many pirated programs, always performing fine, suddenly present huge problems-like deadlines of 30 days appearing: after years of use!!!
It has a mind of its own: screens popping up (unable to click it away!).
I never needed 'apps' and still have no idea what they are and why I would need them!
After this very negative experience, there is only 1 desire: Get rid of windows 8!!! How???
