How to change windows operating system?

Hi:

 

If your notebook came with windows 8 from the factory, you need to change a BIOS setting so you can install and continue to run W7.

 

Please see this guide for what setting to change (enable legacy mode/disable secure boot).

 

Read the section listed under the below heading.

 

Disabling Secure Boot on notebook computers with Windows 8
