I want to upgrade my Lenovo laptop (presently on WinXP Pro) to Windows 7. My son (who is much more knowledgeable than me!) says I can upgrade to Windows 8 Pro (using the upgrade disc) and then downgrade back to Win 7 Pro. I have checked that the computer's BIOS will "accept" Win8.
But the "downgrade" to 7 looks fraught with issues, from reading some of the discussions about it. Do I. for example, need a Windows 7 disc as well?
I would be grateful for some "wise words" on this!
