  • If you want to install Windows 8.1 you will need Windows 8.1 install media to do that. That would obviously erase all data and programs. You maybe able to Window 8.1 media from the manufacture of your system, or it may have recover partition to reset the device back to factory. Documentation for you device would explain that if is available. Any option to install Windows 8.1 would erase all data and programs.

    Can you elaborate the issues you are having with Windows 10? Or the reason you do not like it?

  • Hi Harrison,

    As Mr.Happy said, if you degrade to Windows 8.1, all programs will need to reinstall and the C disk data will be lost, which is really inconvenient. Go back to factory state seems ok, you can contact manufacturer after-sale for support.

    If you have a valid product key, download Windows 8.1 form here.
