Windows 7: Windows 7 rollback to Vista?

28 May 2009   #11

Windows 7 RC1 build 7127
 
 

You're refering to the leaked version? Or is there somewhere I can get the official version? The regular download of the iso from MS is still pushing the 7100.

Im sure that is all your going to get unless you test a leaked "Un-official" version.

hey guys i want to go back to vista
i have updated my computer with the rc, and everyone is saying i should have installed on a separate partition, but they only told me that AFTER i installed. if i get the next build on another partition, will vista be restored on the main partition?

<ps> if i delete the system image of seven on my second partition, and copy all my files from the main partition, could i reinstall vista and just copy all my files back? i dont have any dvd-rw's to save on.

You will have to re-install Vista ... and just copying the files wont work either ...

it seems you're saying you installed win7 over vista. If that's the case then you need to create 2 new partitions, 1 to backup all your data on and the second to reinstall vista. You can then copy all your files back to vista and wipe the win7 partition. If you then want to reinstall the latest build of win7 you'll already have a partition to install to without losing vista

Just copying the files does nothing to update the registry...
