Is it Windows 8 Pro?

If it is, you can avail of the downgrade rights that MS offers: http://www.microsoft.com/oem/en/licensing/sblicensing/pages/downgrade_rights.aspx

If it just plain Windows 8, you'll have to purchase Windows 7. Cheapest you can find them would be from: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832116986
