This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

The easiest way to revert an upgrade that didn't work out is by using Clonezilla to make an image of your disk or OS partition(s) before doing the upgrade; then you can restore the image to your disk or partition if and when you decide to do so. (Note that this works even if the disk has Windows on another partition, and it doesn't matter whether the partition(s) you're cloning are primary or logical. Note also that it isn't necessary to clone your swap partition.)

Is there any other way than doing that. PLEASE – Joe Mack Sep 17 '13 at 0:25
Why don't you want to use Clonezilla? It's quite simple and surprisingly fast; for me, a complete image of one of my ~15-GB OS partitions takes perhaps twenty minutes to make, and it takes a similar amount of time to restore from one. And a few quick taps on the keyboard. There is also Redo Backup and Recovery, which purports to be even simpler; I used it once, but I don't remember much about the experience. I assume it works. – Archelon Sep 18 '13 at 3:45
