My grandmother just received a new Acer E1-531-4624 as a gift from one of her daughters. She's 88 years old an she just can't get her head around using Windows 8. Since she had no problem using Windows 7, I'm wondering what I need to do to downgrade her system to Windows 7?
Aside from a clean install of Windows 7 (I have the media & key) and installation of all the Windows 7 drivers for that system, what else do I need to do? Do I need to revert the BIOS? On the Acer Support Site, there are 12 different BIOS versions available and a big red warning about not using the wrong one, so really hoping someone could push me in the right direction on what I need to do?
Just one further thought. If you find you cannot access 'Secure Boot' (greyed out), you may need to temporarily create a supervisor password. Clear the password once you have disabled 'Secure Boot'. (Unless you really need passwords, don't set them - they will come back to haunt you!!)
