I'm trying to convert brand new system shipped with cDOT 8.3RC2 into 7mode.
Perform the following steps to convert from Data ONTAP Cluster-Mode to Data ONTAP 7-Mode
To convert from Cluster-Mode to 7-Mode:
This action plan worked well with 8.2.x systems but somehow I can't have it done with 8.3.RC2. Even after 2 tries I still ended up with cDOT.
Did something change starting with this version? If the 7mode is not preloaded on CF card, what are my options?

Please see the 8.3RC2 download page
The download page mentions the below note:
>> Note: There is no Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode version of this release.
you cannot covert C-mode to 7 mode because of above in 8.3RC2

that I was afraid of that it applies also to the CF card images. But I still should be able to make a new instalation of 7mode 8.2x, is that correct?

FAS2552 , 8.2.3 7mode is possible.
please raise a support case, they would be able to guide you to switch the preinstalled c-mode to 8.2.3 7 mode.
