Bought my dad a birthday present but regretting it very much. It's this computer: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834214867 I want to install Win 7 for dad because Win 8 is unusable to him. He is not willing to spend even a second learning a new OS. Laptop has Windows 8 preinstalled, and seems to be designed such that you cannot install any other OS on it. While this might sound ridiculous to any tech savvy person, it really does seem to be the case. I entered BIOS, and set it to boot from DVD. Every time I reboot, it just says Checking media... [FAIL] and proceeds to boot Win 8. I tried booting from USB, but every time that option is selected, the laptop just boots Win 8 as if USB was never there. Tried installing Win 7 from the disk inside Win 8 but then I just get an error where Win 7 complains that it cannot write temporary install files to hard disk. I dont understand what the hell is going on.. What gives? Can anyone help please?
