Hey everyone -

I have a new M17xR4 (3 actually) that came pre-installed with Win8, I need to downgrade this to Win7 due to applications that will only run under 7 and not 8.
Anyways, when I boot to the disc I am receiving this error: 'UEFI DVD1 PATH1 (name of dvd drive) has been blocked by the current security policy.'

Anyone else ever wun into this issue and if so what was the fix?

Thanks in advance -
Tom

What programs don't run in w8? W8 is pretty much identical to w7, there should be no compatibility issues.

You would think...but not the case. Certain programs that are related to mappings - for agencies like law enforcement and what not. Not your typical programs...

No problem - maybe you can tell me where I can grab a wireless driver for the rig, other than having to go to dells website, which has terrible speeds.

Idk if they're are posted on this forum or not but other than Dell I'd say just Google it.
