    Has anyone figured out how to restore back to Windows 7?

    I got my image backed up on an external, but I can't get Windows 8 to recognize it.

    Has anyone done this?

    1. use asus repair disc to go back to win 7
    2. burn a bootable system repair disc
    3. image restore.

    took me about an hour to switch back to 7. windows 8 doesnt allow ppl to restore from win 7 image which is kindda idiot.

    never use Windows imaging products. If you had Acronis True Image installed we wouldn't be having this conversation :)

    Should have dual booted rather than a clean install.

    Hi Bobo, If you got Windows Home Server to work, what NIC were you using? I have been unable to get any USB NIC to work.
