This is a high-level solution proposal to solve a very high-level and pervasive problem.
As is well known, we have lived through some wins and some losses with Windows. We are currently living through one of the Great Periods of Loss. Needs fixing.
Using the code
In a nutshell, this app will:
- enumerate and gather all needed drivers for the host machine and prompt the user to insert a thumb drive on which they will be persisted.
- assist the user in creating a restore image, just in case.
- walk the user through the process of creating a booting installer for the Windows 7 version of choice and familiarizing them with their licensing options
- create printed instructions that will guide them through installation, including the needed steps to repartition their disk, so that they can confidently and safely replace the festering sore that is Windows 8 with a reliable, sensible OS (yes, Windows 7).
