    I made a terrible mistake in installing win 8.1 over win7, seriously - how could they screw up an OS that bad? It's scary...!

    Is there a way I can revert to windows 7 or will I have to wipe the partition and install it fresh again?

    you have to erase and load again as windows not backward downgrade. but if you have a restore disc or image backup you could try that. sometimes if go to restore
    you might be lucky and have a restore point saved dated before you upgraded
