As some of you may know, removing and reinstalling Windows 8.1 is a bitch. It's such a bitch, I can't even begin to explain how badly I want to jump on the bandwagon of Windows haters. Some basic information. It is a legit copy of Windows. I bought a Windows 8 Pro way back when and decided to make the fatal mistake of doing the 8.1 update. With 8.1, you can not remove and reinstall Windows. It is like darn near impossible. I also do not have the original CD's or anything, I would however be more than willing to switch over to a free OS like Ubuntu if I have too. I can pay you $40 for the job. PM me or respond here if you're interested or just want to give some advice on what to do.
