    Well, you should make a backup and then re-format your harddrive. This is the only available solution for now. You should have test it on a virtual machine.

    Do what I do and just dual boot. Like right now I needed to transfer files from my Windows 7 installation to my USB, after using my USB to install Windows 8, I just rebooted, after it somehow boot into 8's boot loader, and just chose the Windows 7 option and booted into that OS.

    Lmao!

    Honestly, I am disappointed in Microsoft with Windows 8.

    And check this... you won't believe this - Microsoft are even gonna be using Metro tiles for Windows 8 Server! What the hell?

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think I read somewhere there's no way to downgrade atm. That was a while back, so there might be an option now. Best of luck! :)
