Originally a Vista notebook. Got a free upgrade to Win7. Upgrade went flawlessly.
3 Days ago (Mar 1,2012), i installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview. It screwed up my notebook. The only way to revert this
upgrade is a complete recovery.
Any tips on how to reset to its original settings?
Most important : Will the reset go back to Vista????
Thanks for any tips. All help is much appreciated.

Do you still have the original Recovery partition ? If Yes, using F11 at booting time, follow instructions from screen. This will bring you back to Vista, you can then use the free Windows 7 DVD to upgrade from Vista to Windows 7.
Please also check to see your free Windows 7 DVD is an upgrade DVD or a clean install (I have to recover back to Vista on my machine).
