Windows 7: Blue screen logo.

Blue screen logo.

Hey guys,
I got my new rig yesterday and I have had nothing but problems with uninstalling Win8 to put Win7 on.

I am currently booting from a USB, I did the BIOS and I successfully installed Win7 HOWEVER,
each time I booted my computer up, it would just show the Windows 7 default background,
this is after I installed Gigabyte (Intel P61/H61 Utility Driver Disc) and my NVIDIA Graphics card,
the guy at the tech support of the company said, install those in that order, so I did.


Now my boot is just showing the Windows 7 default background and it just stays there,

I just re-installed it and it seemed to work perfectly, thanks for the input though.

You might just check a few things to make sure there isn't an underlying problem:

1. Click Start
2. In the search box, type cmd
3. In the list that appears, right-click on cmd.exe and choose Run as administrator
4. In the command window that opens, type sfc /scannow and hit enter.

Report the output from the command window once it finishes.

First, do a restore to factory state. Windows 8 can be a bit difficult to use compared to Windows 7. It can be tamed though.

Start Button:
If you install Classic Shell (free) or Stardock's Start8 ($4.99) or similar software then you can have the Start button as it was in Windows 7 and boot directly to the Desktop. You can still play with Metro stuff but it's not forced on you.

Windows 7 Gadgets:
Windows 7 Gadgets are also available if you want them: 8GadgetPack - Gadgets for Windows 8

UAC:
I find UAC extremely annoying. If you do too then to (mostly) disable UAC, Press Windows key + R to open the Run window.
Type msconfig and press Enter.
Click on the Tools tab.
Select Change UAC settings and click Launch.
Move the slider all the way to the bottom then click OK.
Some parts of UAC will still be alive, so to completely disable it you need to change a registry key.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
Key: EnableLUA
Set the value to 0

You cannot use any Metro Apps or the App Store when UAC is disabled. If you've gone this far, you can also disable all hot corners so you will not get any of the Windows Charms popups. Just check the Classic Shell and Start8 options to do this.

Ztrucker, It looks like he has formatted and replaced Windows 8 with W7

Yup, saw that but should be able to use the Recovery Partition on the hard drive to restore to Windows 8, unless that was deleted.
