    You should be able to change boot priority from your BIOS settings, which Windows should not affect. I'm wondering if you popped in your Windows 7 CD would it allow you to revert? Probably not I assume, but your main focus for fixing your problem would be in the BIOS to change the boot priority and then loading your Win7 disk.

    Its impossible.
    If your device connected properly, you can change boot option.
    You must recheck your USB if you are using external DVD drive.

    You should be able to see a boot option priority list in your BIOS, go in there and go through everything again.

    This is the future anyway.. Personally I would keep windows 8 but make it work like windows 7.
    In fact I haven't tried win8 yet, but I'd keep it.
    Simply find a tutorial on how to make win8 work like win7 by not using the new interface with big squares.

    Can't you just back up your important files (if you have any there), then format it and install whatever OS you wish? Maybe flash the BIOS if needed?

    I haven't tried W8 yet, but your post takes me even farther from that....

    If you bought it with a laptop or PC and downgrade it to previous versions of Windows then your warranty may be effected.

    It might not be possible to do what you wish to perform, custom sold laptop's are hard to reconfigure and once done it violates the warranty conditions. So be careful with you decision.
