I have been struggling for an entire day trying to downgrade a windows 8.1 pc to windows 7 pro.  I have tried to install from a dvd and also from a usb drive.  One suggestion was that the installation media was corrupt.  I have redouwloaded the iso 5 times and created an installation usb drive 3 times and three times with a dvd drive.  I keep getting the same message after clicking on Instll windows.  It tells me it can't find the drivers for the dvd or usb drive
