Hello there I have a little problem that is getting in my way before I install Windows 7. In my BIOS it says that the Factory OS is Windows 8 is it possible to install Windows 7 on a Windows 8 machine? Or is it impossible? I could try it out, but i'm just curious. Any ideas?

Hi,

 

AFAIK the Factory OS is only informative. You can install Windows 7 but you have to disable Secure Boot and sometimes enable CSM if the BIOS/UEFI allow that.
