    Default What do I need to do to get back to Windows 8.1?

    This machine had 8.1 on it. I applied the Win 10 upgrade, and now wish to return to 8.1. I booted from the CD, entered the details and key, it told me to remove the disk and restart the system. When I do, it comes back up into the Window 10 system as it did before I started. What do I need to do to get back to 8.1?

    No, I hadn't. I've been booting from the 8.1 install disk, entering the options and product key, and waiting until it said remove the disk and reboot. I'll have a look at that.

    It says to do this within 30 days, so I can't.

    As long as you have old windows file, you could roll it back again or you could reinstall it.
