Win8 to Win7

Qball
Level 7
HI,

I bought a new laptop G75VW series preloaded with win8, and I have a genuine win7 pro that I would like to clean install. It seems that the bios don't allows another operating system to install, I think that as to do with the UEFI. Anyways, is there someone who could send me the step by step how to downgrade to win7 and to point out which new driver that I require.
