Yes, I wasn't suggesting you stick with Win8 suggestions were to get your PC to boot to dvd. Smile | :)

You should be able to boot from the windows 8 DVD into Recovery Console (via F8 / dvd setup)

start up Diskpart, typing everything in bold followed by [Return]

diskpart
list disk


select HDD with win8 on it (probably disk 0)


select disk <n>
clean
create partition primary
active
exit


Replace Win8 DVD with Win7, type exit to reboot,
and it should automatically boot to dvd without intervention.

I've removed windows 8 and windows server 2012 this way, so it is possible.
Smile | :)

That's what machines are for.

Got a problem?
Sleep on it.
