Well the problem is that either you have wiped Windows 7 off or upgraded Windows 7. The only way to go back to Windows 7 is to reinstall Windows 7. If your laptop/desktop had a windows 7 recovery disc use that. If it didn't came with disc maybe try contacting your PC manufacter but I think it is too late. If the manufacter don't give you the disc then you would have to buy Windows 7 disc I afraid.

With Most Systems you get the option to make a set of discs to restore to original ( when it came out of the box ) This option is also on your system in the recovery part provided its not been altered or removed. as a final step you can normally purchase the recovery discs from the makers this will allow a restore to factory settings

Hopefully you saved your Win 8 Download to a DVD keep it safe with the serial number along with the media centre serial you may change your mind later
