    My Asus T100-chi tablet came with Windows10 pre-installed. So I do have the official OEM-key for this. I was wondering if it were possible to somehow downgrade this Windows10 installtion to a Windows8.0/8.1 or even a 7 ?

    Would it be possible to install a 7/8/8.1 official iso and then upgrade this to 10 with my OEM license. And downgrade to a then fully licensed Windows 7-8.1 installation?

    I thought MDL was all about this kinda stuff :sad3:

    what Enthousiast said is totally true. I've just bought the brand new Asus G752 with windows 10, and there is no way you can downgrade it to Win 7.
