How do I restore original factory settings after installing Windows 8 ?
I installed windows 8 nut things are not working properly. I would like to shift back to windows 7 on my Sony Vaio. But how do I restore original factory settings ? I cannot find the 'Vaio central' option in the start menu.
By installing Windows 8 Dev Prev over your original operating system do you realise that without a full backup will not be able to do restore?
You can however reinstall the previous OS if a restoration disc is available to you and install all software from there.
Long way but unless you have created a dual boot.
This is not the expected reply but sorry.
I am not sure I understood your problem but, have you tried F11 (or F10 at some cases) while booting? Sometimes it brings up a menu to restore your built-in OS that is hidden on a special partition...
You should have installed W8 on a different partition since it is not a final version. Only final versions should be installed on other Windows, just in case to lessen the risk. I hope I helped you dude!
