If you have the new Windows 8 operating system from Microsoft, but are displeased with it, don’t worry – the best option right now is to uninstall it. Uninstalling an operating system is very simple, but needs to be done properly so that you do not lose any important data. There are a couple of procedures to follow while you uninstall windows 8 from your system.
Deleting windows 8 from a second drive partition
Before you start uninstalling anything from your system? You back up all the necessary contents of your PC. Make a copy of all files and folders onto an external hard disk. Be sure to copy off all needed files and any that are in your Windows 8 partition. Once you have made a copy boot into the system you wish to keep as your default OS, preferably Windows 7. Go to Start on your desktop, and then choose Run. Type in msconfig, and then navigate to the Boot tab. Highlight the Windows 8 boot option, then click Delete. Then highlight the Windows 7 boot option. Click Set As Default. You can now close msconfig.
Since the Windows 8 option has been deleted from your system’s boot process, it is time to delete the Windows 8 data. Go to Start, the select Control panel, then Administrative Tools then Computer Management. Locate Disk Management in the left hand pane and click it. Find the partition you had created for the Windows 8 install. Right click on it and select Delete Volume. Once this is done, select the empty volume by right-clicking on it, and then selecting Shrink Volume. Now your Windows 8 partition ceases to exist.
If Windows 8 was installed after formatting or deleting your Windows 7 installation, the only way to go back is completely erase the Windows 8 install. Then you need to perform a clean install of Windows 7, which will wipe your PC. To do this you will need Windows 7 installation media (and a product key). And you need to back up all your files to a separate drive. This will totally wipe clean your PC. Boot using the Windows 7 DVD or USB drive. Then format the Windows 8 partition, and install your copy of Windows.
Following these steps, the procedure to uninstall Windows 8 from your system will be very easy. If you encounter any difficulties contact Microsoft tech support for help.Google+
