LOL

Well after a week and one reinstall I am coming to terms with this. For sure, it is not the easy step from Vista to 7.

Now running Classic menu, and installing programs by default with "compatibility mode = Win 7". (Lots of "installers" hang at the end of an installation if not)

DirectX error with GPU-Z miracoulusly solved... One day I got to phone W1zard... :)

SkyDrive tips and tricks

I don't use SkyDrive much but it's awesome.
One thing I can tell you about Skydrive is the metro app. has a 100MB upload limit. Meaning you can only upload 100MB at a time to your 7GB storage. If you go to the Windows Live website you can upload an unlimited amount. I end up always using the website to share files as they are ALWAYS over 100MB.

Lovin' it!!!

And I have 459 Mb to update (Office2010 incl.)

What a shame the information of the patching as it is given in WUP is obscure and you have to click and go to MSDN pages. I have no time.

I don't know if this has been mentioned but the W8 ISO file works with the W7 USB Download tool.

If you get a retail disc, LC ISO Creator makes compatible ISO files (I tried with an ISO made with Alcohol 52% and the W7USB tool said it was an incompatible file).

Rocking W8 Pro MC in the HTPC. The MetroUI looks pretty good on a 42" :D

Yeah, description didn't provide any useful info. Just says it improves reliabilty and stuff.



BTW people "add features" to Windows 8 option is now missing. :confused: So many people have this problem and they can't install Media Center. Anyone knows what's going on?

http://social.technet.microsoft.com...t/thread/1469a30e-ae05-4b8d-9bed-77abfccdc74c
Now (I found) it is in Add or Remove Windows features (In Add Programs), Sorry if my localisation is wrong. Then you go to Multimedia features (Media Player and Media Center)

I believe that if you once registered it, it now "hangs" on your windows key. This was what I had to do when I reinstalled last weekend.

i Bought + clean instal of windows 8 Pro x64 (used RTM 9200 iso).

From win7 x64 Pro to this i've noticed a couple of problems on my network and internet conn which never appeared on win7.

5 Mins after i've finished installing win8 pro x64 i got my first blue screen of death. HIghly likely it was caused by my nVidia beta driver installation (solved)

I do received disconnections quite often, which can be quite annoying on origin, as you have to manually tell origin to reconnect again. (EA should fix that if you want to go offline, you have to manually choose to go offline, if you disconnect it should automatically reconnect when and internet conn is active.)

(Via 100Mbps Ethernet LAN conn)
Network discovery is broken at the moment on win 8 pro x64 rtm, takes 5+mins to discover 2 PCs on my LAN, manually pinging and then accessing via IP still does not work. Trying to access a network drive from win 8 pro x64 on a PC running XP 32bit is really horrid and terrible experience. Very very slow.

A couple of games crash.. all the time.. seems fine after 1 minute.. then the games crash with no error code. a simple "stopped working" windows, with a "close application" button.

All in all It is quite responsive. boots pretty fast, most apps appears more responsive.

Win 8 Pro x64 does not seem to have native USB 3.0 Support. Which is a bit weird.

it was my first format after 2 years.. But i'm strongly considering going back to Win 7 x64 Pro until the majority of problems in win 8 Pro x64 have been sorted out.


Add me to the list of Win 8 PRo x64 Users

Try UltraISO.

It will work, you can also use UltraISO to create a bootable Win7/Win8 USBDrive.
Alcohol and Deamon Tools is overkill for today's discs since most use online authentication, the files on the disc is merely for installation and there is not "security features" on the discs. No need for overkill cloning software that installs 3rd party drivers.. :)

USB3: I did not install drivers and Win8 installed by itself drivers for Intel and Asmedia USB3 chips. Do you call that "native support"?

For my MSI 870A-G54 i had to manually install the windows 7 x64 Renesas USB3.0 Drivers, Win 8 Pro x64 Didn't pick it up. Seems the Win7 Renesas USB3.0 Drivers work on win8 quite fine.

That won't work for people who haven't installed Media Center. However I found a solution. It's simple:

Open command line as admin and type:

control /name Microsoft.WindowsAnytimeUpgrade

I'm glad to know that it works, yay!

Yup W8 has not only native support for USB3 but it also utilizes it in an optimized way. And W8 also has a native support for wifi/lan, it's good for net/notebook users. No need to install drivers.

Does that mean I should uninstall the manufacturers' USB 3.0 drivers I installed on my computer? The standard Microsoft ones work, but you're saying the Microsoft ones will be faster?

I don't know, but i'm certain that my win 8 didn't even detect the USB 3.0 ports on my motherboard. had the OS running for 2 days, and the ports still didn't work, even trying to install through windows update it didn't pick it up. So i had to look for my drivers, since it never completes the download from the MSI site, for those specific drivers..
