  • Hi Kevin,

    Thanks for posting!

    Base on my experience, we don't downgrade our OS form windows 8.1 to windows 8. If you want to use windows 8, I guess you may only re-install you OS.

    And it seems like this issue is related to Windows System, I will move this issue to Windows System discussion to get better support.

    Thanks,

    Regards,

    Will

  • Hi Kevin,

    As Will said, We can't use your Windows 8 system image on Windows 8.1, it's a different operating system. So this is not a downgrade at all. We just could go back to the old operating system by reinstallation.
