You could format and install Windows 7 no problem. Not sure if you could activate the same 8 licence you were given with the laptop though, but I guess you still do have the key which is again locked to your machine, or well... when you format, you'll still have the genuine Microsoft sticker right?
Not sure how it'd work, as they don't tend to give you installation discs so you would have to find a way of downloading it from them and using the code from your previous installation.
