Hopefully this is the right place to ask. Anyway I don't have much experience with laptops (especially Win8 laptops) and was wondering what the procedure might be to install Win7, or if it is even a smart thing to do on this sort of laptop.

So far what I've attempted to do was go to Settings > General > Start up options > Boot from device. However sometimes it doesn't see any disc in there and when it does it pops up with an error and continues to normal boot.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as my aunt is only here for a short while.

Windows 8 is much better now. Try using windows 8.1
You have to change your setting in bios from harddisk 1st to 2nd.
1st priority should be your CD drive. :bounce:
