Hi,

1. Unless you have deleted the Recovery partition on your machine, otherwise your machine should have a Recovery partition. Make sure backing up all of your files before restoring the PC/laptop to factory settings.

To set your PC/laptop to factory settings, restart the PC/laptop. At the HP welcome screen hit repeatly the F11 key (or Esc key) to launch the recovery process. Follow the instructions provided on the screen.

 

2. My suggestion: keep Windows 7, you will be disappointed with Windows 8. But if you wish, Microsoft has a tool which is similar to Windows 7 Advisor for Windows 8 called Windows 8 Upgrade Assisstant . Please download the Assisstant and run on your machine:

   http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/upgrade-to-windows-8  

 

You have to buy upgrade to Windows 8 from Microsoft (download) or from many computer shops (DVD's).

 

Regards.
