There is very limited rights to downgrade. I think you need the professional version.

I might be wrong, but since you have UEFI bios, you have to disable secure boot etc to install Windows 7 from USB / DVD.

I really, REALLY suggest you use Asus Backtracker and backup your factory partition so that if you decided to go back to factory OS (With apps, programs, drivers, W8.1 etc - You can). Backtracker is great, just buy a 8gb or larger USB for this.

You need a 16GB USB. By the way. Also another 4GB USB if you want for all the drivers you currently have installed.

Although I think drivers are also backed up in the main BackTracker, not sure.

To 'downgrade' all you need is a Windows 7 Disc, disable UEFI and Secure Boot in the BIOS, but yes, getting all the drivers for the 7 is the tricky part.

Also, you need to ensure 'Trim' is enabled for your SSD.
