Can I restore previous Windows OS if Windows 10 doesn't work

Postby guest » Thu Aug 27, 2015 12:23 pm

Q: my new laptop is running Windows 8.1 (64-bit). The message on the report for my computer in the get windows 10 box is 'This pc is compatible' but there is a proviso 'You won't be able to restore your computer to factory settings after upgrade'. Would I be able to restore my computer back to Windows 8.1 by use of my recovery image USB I have created if Windows 10 doesn't work?

A: If the manufacturer set up your PC to run from a compressed Windows image file (also known as Windows image file boot or WIMBoot) and included the option to restore factory settings, that option will no longer be available after you upgrade to Windows 10.

If options to go back and restore factory settings aren’t available, you can use installation media and a product key to install a previous version of Windows.
