I bought a Dell XPS8500 around Christmas time. I have been disappointed by windows 8 and really want to downgrade to windows 7. I have the disc i need (64-bit windows 7) but i was wondering if someone can help me by telling me if the hardware is compatible with the old OS because i saw on another post that some PCs running windows 8 are not compatible with the older OS. Thank you in advance. EDIT: also any advise for downgrading would be very nice as i am not completely sure on how to do it. I am just going to back up my files i want and run the disc 🙂
Thanks for reaching out to us.
If your system was shipped with Windows 8 Pro only then you have an option to downgrade. Please check this link which has all the required information on how to downgrade to Windows 7: http://dell.to/16QHvi5
