Windows 7: Can i install Windows 7 over the top of Windows 8?

Vista x64 / 7 X64

Do all the oem's do that?

I doubt it.

If you buy with w8 PRO pre installed, you can in theory downgrade to Windows 7 or Vista.

Are all the oem's going to be giving out dvd'd for the two os you can downgrade to?

I would be surprised.

Perhaps you have to request them from the oem specially.
